Developer plans 15,000-seat cricket stadium in big Allen development

The development will be located on 80 acres near TX 121-Sam Rayburn Tollway/Alma. The article says the stadium might also be suitable for rugby and soccer.

I was hoping that would end up (at least) in Irving. I guess the leading edge of suburbia is the usual place for novel attractions.

The city is considering assisting the project with a grant for infrastructure improvements ... a "proposed mixed-use development, anchored by a multi-use sports complex, training facilities and event center [with] 500,000 square feet of Class A office space."It also would include more than 1,000 new residential units, potentially including townhomes, condos and apartments. The proposal also calls for two hotels in a high-rise condominium tower and about 165,000 square feet of shopping, including a grocer.

Might've been mentioned somewhere else on the forum, but, no cricket stadium for this site. New development name as well (obviously?). Articles below are from way back in February '20.

I'd prefer to see a Cricket Stadium somewhere more central like Irving instead.

I was thinking Irving, West Carrollton, NW Dallas as well.
