The Popular Community Developments Of Irving

The Popular Community Developments Of Irving

Irving is a gem in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. From business and commerce to beautiful homes worthy of design magazines, Irving provides a beautiful quality of life that is unparalleled by any other city in Dallas. Irving is neither large or small, as this popular city is home to about 200,000 people. Irving is strategically located just 12 miles from Dallas and 25 miles from Fort Worth, thereby providing a great deal of opportunity for the professionals that call Irving home. Many of Irving’s residents chose this bedroom community because of its close proximity to both Dallas and Fort Worth and, as such, Irving real estate continues to be in high demand. Irving is also a source of industry in its own right. Such major corporations as Kimberly-Clark and Exxon Mobile are based in Irving, thereby providing a plethora of job opportunities for individuals interested in settling down in this dynamic city. Las Colinas Within Irving is perhaps one of the most successful master planned developments in the country: Las Colinas. Stretching out over nearly 12,000 acres, Las Colinas is one of the biggest master planned communities in the Southwestern half of the country. As a result, Las Colinas has become a highly sought after destination in which to live. Irving real estate in Las Colinas has always been highly sought after, as there are eight, distinct neighborhoods within Las Colinas from which to choose from Irving real estate. From apartment homes to estate-style mansions, Irving real estate in Las Colinas has something for nearly everyone. Las Colinas is the premier center for industry and commerce as well, as it is home to more than 2,000 corporations and provides a home to four Fortune 500 companies. Valley Ranch The master-planned community of Valley Ranch in Irving is a primarily residential community that features more than 4,000 single-family homes and 21 multi-family communities. More than 30,000 residents call Valley Ranch home, and for good reason; in addition to the excellent real estate opportunities found here, Valley Ranch boasts over five miles of canal walkways, ponds and seven parks, all of which are situated among the picturesque, rolling hills of the Trinity River Basin. All of the canals and thoroughfares are maintained by the Valley Ranch Association, thereby keeping the surroundings of Valley Ranch beautiful, pristine and aesthetically pleasing. In addition, there are 138 businesses and eight neighborhoods throughout Valley Ranch. The Heritage District Beautiful, historic influences are alive and well in Irving’s Heritage District. From quaint, antique shops and old-time soda shops, the small-town atmosphere of the Heritage District attracts thousands of visitors each year. Inside the Heritage District is Heritage Park, one of Irving’s most charming attractions. Located in the center of the Heritage District, Heritage Park has preserved Irving’s history, as is evident by the Caster Cabin, which was built in 1887 and the Rock Island Depot, which was built in 1903. The vision of the Heritage District is a mixed-use community where both residential areas and businesses are found. Some of the redevelopment projects of the Heritage District include the construction of new townhomes and single-family residences. As such, Irving real estate in the Heritage District is expected to be quite strong over the next few years.
