Irving-Las Colinas Housing Offers Access to Employers and Amenities at a Lower Price Than Other Suburbs


Irving, Texas. July 3, 2018

Irving can offer homebuyers many of the same amenities and conveniences as its fellow suburbs, like Plano or Frisco, for a lower price.

Though Plano has recently attracted high-profile headquarters like Toyota North America, Irving has long been a magnet for corporate campuses, housing Exxon Mobil, Kimberly-Clark, Fluor, Pioneer Natural Resources and many more.

One of its most recent additions, Pei Wei Asian Diner, began relocating from Scottsdale, Arizona, last year. CEO J. Hedrick said his company was attracted to Irving thanks in part to its proximity to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, which puts the company within a 3-hour direct flight to all of its restaurants.

In an effort to keep its daytime population in the city, Irving has started developing more restaurant, retail and entertainment options. Toyota Music Factory, a $200 million, 50,000-square-foot-plus development, has brought amenities like eateries and an Alamo Drafthouse along Highway 141.

Now, like Plano, Irving is seeing its employer base, transportation options and lifestyle offerings, along with its proximity to downtown Dallas, bring in more homebuyers.

“They’ve done different things and created a vibrant community,” Jim Berrong, associate broker with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, an Ebby Halliday Real Estate company, said of the city.

As a compilation of master-planned communities like Las Colinas and Valley Ranch, Irving also offers potential homebuyers a variety of housing options, Berrong added.

Homes near Las Colinas and Valley Ranch may be older, but are well-established and tend to offer proximity to shopping, offices and restaurants.

Cheaper options exist north of Highway 183, where buyers can find a variety of condominiums, townhomes and single-family houses.
