Duties and Responsibilities
The city owns and manages various properties throughout the downtown area as well as the stadium site. These land-bank properties were acquired in order to spur new development in the Heritage Crossing Revitalization Initiative and the stadium site. City ownership of the stadium site adds to the real estate involvement for economic development in Irving.
Overall, the real estate staff also provides traditional services to city departments in:
Securing land and property rights for municipal facilities
Acquiring right-of-ways and easements for streets, drainage, water, and sewer systems
Managing the abandonment and licensing of city right-of-way
Management of city-owned leased property and management of over 2,000 acres of oil and gas assets is also handled by the real estate staff. Real Estate Services provides necessary acquisition and coordination services for implementation of Corridor Enhancement Projects, intergovernmental projects with Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), and Dallas county.
Real Estate Services does not offer services for securing or selling personal real estate. The City of Irving does not provide personal real estate listings of for-sale properties. For more information please contact Doug Janeway at (972) 721-2790.
