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.

    They never rescheduled the formal ground breaking, but they seem to be doing some work over there, at least on the utilities.

    Any update on this ground breaking? Did it ever occur?

    Love the idea of somehow preserving the old orchard.

    This is smack on top of the La Reunion site and part of the town of Cement City. There is an old orchard planted by the French settlers over 150 years ago very close. I would love to see these trees preserved or even transplanted if possible. It was reported that the orchard was planted as a test in the beginning so to lure others, if they thrived. I would love to have a bucket full of fruit pits from those old trees.

    Seems like they might’ve. The groundbreaking today was postponed, but I will try to find out.

    Guessing the In-N-Out Burger plans fizzled?
