Irving is a city in Dallas County, Texas. Lauded for its walkability, accessibility and prime location between Dallas and Fort Worth, Irving is a hot spot, offering several distinct neighborhoods.
In the downtown district, the Heritage Crossing community offers a charming town square, complete with antique shops. The desirable Las Colinas community ? one of the first master-planned developments in the country ? provides upscale living on 12,000 acres next to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Over 50 Fortune 500 companies are located in the Las Colinas office park, which is the largest in North Texas. With the University of Dallas located just southeast of Las Colinas, this area also offers ample rental options for students and university staff.
Valley Ranch, another master-planned residential community, is near eight neighborhood centers and seven parks, and boasts over 5 miles of landscaped walkways that wind along an extensive system of canals.
Commuting and day-tripping from Plano is easy. Residents can drive to Dallas or Fort Worth in less than 30 minutes. The Trinity Railway Express, a commuter rail line that stops in Heritage Crossing and West Irving, provides a faster connection to both cities, while the Orange Line of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit?s light rail system connects to downtown Dallas.
Irving's low taxes and utility rates make it a desirable place to live. Apartments for rent in Irving are, therefore, in high demand, so be ready to make an offer if you find an apartment you love.
