“This is great news for the city of Irving,” said Tommy Gonzalez, city manager, Irving. “We have a beautiful, award-winning convention center located next to one of the largest airports in the world.

Mortenson Development, Inc. will fund, design and build the hotel, which will also include a 300-space parking garage, a sky bridge linking the hotel to theIrving Convention Centerand 20,000 square feet of additional meeting room space.

“Mortenson, Leo A.
