Hidden Ridge Station
Verizon Communications Inc. is creating a $1.5 billion, 110-acre development called Hidden Ridge. The first phase - Pioneer Natural Resources' new 1.1 million-square-foot headquarters - was recently sold to a partnership of domestic and international investors.
Now Verizon is working with the city of Irving to start the next phase of the mixed-use Hidden Ridge project. Along with the Pioneer Natural Resources buildings, Hidden Ridge is designed to include an additional 1.5 million square feet of offices for corporate tenants, a 200-room full-service hotel, more than 1,000 residential units, 80,000 square feet for restaurant and retail space, a 2-acre park and the new DART station.
"Located between Dallas and Fort Worth, the station will provide unbeatable passenger access to what will be one of the most significant mixed-use developments in North Texas when completed," Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer said.
Verizon is building Hidden Ridge on the site of the former Carpenter family ranch, once home to the founders of the Las Colinas development. DART agreed to the city of Irving's request to change the name to Hidden Ridge Station.
As part of a 2018 agreement, the city of Irving committed to funding station construction, originally deferred during Orange Line construction. A grant from the North Central Texas Council of Governments covered the most of the cost.
Construction began in February. DART expects to complete the project in early 2021. The light rail station will include 136 parking spaces and six bus bays.
DART is constructing the infill Hidden Ridge Station, formerly Carpenter Ranch Station, along the Orange Line to serve the new Hidden Ridge development being created on Verizon-owned land.
