Dallas—Development and construction leader Skanska has recently signed a deal to convert a 16.8 acre greenfield site into a world-class entertainment destination in Texas. The contract for building the Irving Music Factory in a partnership with the ARK Group is worth $94 million.
The new entertainment venue will include an 8,000-seating capacity indoor/outdoor concert hall, seven buildings with nearly 250,000 square feet of entertainment, retail and restaurant space, as well as a four-story office tower with a six-level parking garage. The project also boasts a plaza and four outdoors stages.
The Irving Music Factory which has been called an “all-in-one dining and entertainment destination” for the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex will host a variety of events, including music performances, fashion shows, farmer’s markets and food festivals throughout the year.
Construction is expected to commence in February 2016 and be complete by June 2017.
