Irving, Texas/281,000 square feet
The Westin Irving Convention Center hotel will sit immediately adjacent to the Irving Convention Center and just north of the planned Music Factory mixed-use development. The 350-key full-service hotel is being developed with support from the City of Irving in a public-private partnership with developer Garfield Public Private. The ground floor will include a restaurant, cocktail lounge and coffee bar, as well as 16,000 square feet of meeting space, including a grand ballroom, three banquet rooms, and two board rooms. A large pool, pool deck and bar, and fitness center will be located on the second floor facing the Music Factory. Austin Commercial is the general contractor, and Waldrop Nichols Studio has been engaged to complete interior design. The project is slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2018.
