"Developers are getting closer to starting work on North Texas' next major mixed-use development," reports Steve Brown.

"Verizon and KDC's $1 billion Hidden Ridge development in Las Colinas will include corporate offices, retail, apartments and hotel rooms on a more than 100-acre site west of State Highway 114," adds Brown.

The development will be located across the street from Verizon's corporate campus, and will soon be served by a Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) commuter rail station on the Orange Line. The transit connection to the new development was made possible when the Orange Line was constructed, according to a March 2016 newsletter from DART.

Although a $1 billion mixed use project is a big deal, it still doesn't equal the $3 billion Legacy West project underway in nearby Plano.
