New Hampton Inn & Suites hotel In Irving Texas

A Hampton Inn & Suites is under construction on the Northeast corner of Airport Freeway and North O’Conner on what used to be a parking lot. Irving city documents show that when complete the hotel will be approximately 62,000 square feet. The site is in the Artesian Plaza next to businesses like Irving Storage Climate and directly in front of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a martial arts school.

The earliest historical aerial images of the area we could find date back to 1958. At the time Irving was booming and approaching a population of almost 50,000 after having less than 3000 10 years earlier. Despite the population boom at the time, this particular site was still undeveloped with sparse vegetation. The buildings that now are now in what is today Artesian Plaza do not appear until the 1980s.
