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.
