The city of Irving has entered negotiations with Forest City Enterprises to redevelop the Teaxs Stadium site after the Cowboys begin play in the new Arlington Stadium in 2009.

Irving city officials announced Thursday their plans to build an expansive urban district, complete with a DART rail station, hotels, civic buildings, residences and a park above State Highway 114 on the current stadium site.

The total cost of the project is expected to reach ~2 billion. The first phase of the project is expected to be complete in 2012 with total buildout expected to be reached in 2022.
