Dallas Stars owner Tom Gaglardi plans to break ground this before then end of the year on a luxury hotel in Las Colinas.
Gaglardi’s Northland Properties Corp. for more than a year has been planning h the 205-room, six-story hotel at State Highways 114 and 161 in Irving.
The hotel is part of Dallas Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones 36-acre Star Park mixed-use development.
A filing for the first $18 million construction of the project was just filed with the state of Texas.
Dallas-based Studio RedDot is designing the project.
The hotel will include a 6,788 square-foot, 225‐seat Moxie’s Grill restaurant with an outdoor patio.
The Las Colinas hotel is one of the first Texas projects for Northland Properties’ hotel group.
The Canada-based Sandman Signature Hotel chain already operates a 233-room hotel in Plano, its first location in the U.S.
Gaglardi bought the Dallas Stars in 2011. His company operates a chain of Sandman and Sutton Place hotels in Canada, the U.K. and now Texas.
Along with the Sandman hotel, the surrounding Star Park development includes a 288-unit apartment community being built by Lincoln Property Co.
And Jones’ Blue Star Land and Lincoln Property are building a 36,000-square-foot retail strip adjoining apartments and hotel site.
Lincoln Property also has a site for an office building in the project.
The Sandman Hotel is one of two new hotels on the way in the area. Type Six Design & Development has received zoning approval for a six-story, 150-room Hotel Indigo in Las Colinas.
Construction on the Indigo will start in the second quarter of 2021.
