the canyon in oak cliff

Construction could begin soon on the first piece of a 200-acre development at Interstate 30 and Westmoreland.

A four-story Residence Inn by Marriott Hotels & Resorts is planned for The Canyon in Oak Cliff, a massive residential/office/retail development adjacent to Pinnacle Park.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings is among the dignitaries expected at a ceremonial groundbreaking for the 103-room hotel today. It’s the second such groundbreaking for The Canyon; the first was in May 2013. Since then, the project has been delayed several times.

UPDATE: The groundbreaking today has been postponed due to rain.

The project’s developers plan as many as 7,500 apartments, 1,000 hotel rooms, 1.2 million square feet of office space and 800,000 square feet of shops and restaurants.
