Irving City Council cleared plans for a two-building, 236-unit multifamily project in Valley Ranch at its Feb. 13 meeting.

The 5.3-acre project will be developed in one phase and will include 295 parking spaces, according to city documents.

The apartment units are broken down into 200 one-bedroom and efficiency units and 36 two-bedroom units, according to the developer. The units will range in size from about 600-1,300 square feet.

The city received 26 letters from the community in support of the project and none in opposition, according to city documents.

The apartment will be located northwest of the MacArthur Boulevard and Valley Ranch Parkway intersection. It is being spearheaded by Criterion Development Partners.


The project passed council 6-3, with Council Members Allan Meagher and Kyle Taylor and Mayor Rick Stopfer opposed.
