IRVING, Texas (August 24, 2021) – Construction is underway on the new 150-room Hotel Indigo® in Irving, Texas, and that is cause for celebration. Type Six Design & Development joined development partner Shreem Capital, IHG Hotels & Resorts, and local leaders to celebrate the occasion at a groundbreaking ceremony on August 18, 2021.


Officials at the event included Mayor Rick Stopfer, City of Irving; Oscar Ward, Councilman, City of Irving; Maura Gast, Executive Director, Visit Irving; J. Hammond Perot, President, Las Colinas Association; Carol Hoeller, IHG Global Head of Hotel Indigo® Brand; and Bhavin Patel, Principal, Shreem Capital. 


“We are thrilled to commence construction on the Hotel Indigo® that will vicariously tell the story of the Carpenter family’s vision for Las Colinas throughout this one-of-a-kind upscale boutique property,” said Bhavin Patel, Principal, Shreem Capital. “Las Colinas is both our headquarters and home to this new hotel, and we look forward to continuing to create value in this city and working with its great leadership.”  


Upon completion, the Hotel Indigo® by IHG will feature a six-story (90-ft. tall) tower, 150 rooms with canal views, and a 90-seat, full-service restaurant and bar. The local design developed by Type Six also includes 3,300 sq. ft. of meeting space, an infinity edge swimming pool, fitness center, and 155 surface parking spaces. In addition to its architectural services, Type Six will provide MEP and Structural Engineering support for the hotel. 


“We’re excited to continue in this next step from design to development of the Hotel Indigo® with Shreem Capital,” said James Lusty, Type Six Co-Founder. “The perfect balance of form and function in the heart of Las Colinas, this hotel will be a standout property in the ever-growing Irving market.”


Visit Irving Executive Director Maura Gast said, “Irving’s Las Colinas development was built on the principles of ‘placemaking’ and the addition of this Hotel Indigo®, a brand distinct to its neighborhoods and communities, is a perfect addition to the Irving landscape.  The evolution of our entertainment district has allowed Irving to provide the perfect complement for living, working, visiting and playing.  This neighborhood welcomes visitors, residents and corporate tenants for a diverse range of workday and lifestyle options, from a vibrant collection of restaurants and live music venues to the distinctive settings of Lake Carolyn and the Mandalay Canal. With the Toyota Music Factory, Water Street and the Mandalay Canal just steps from this new Hotel Indigo®, IHG Hotels & Resorts has secured a very attractive location for visitors to Irving.”


Hotel Indigo® is an upscale boutique hotel brand from IHG Hotels & Resorts with 128 hotels now open around the world, and an additional 110 under development. Inspired by the colors, textures, history, buildings, and people that make up each neighborhood, Hotel Indigo® celebrates these elements to immerse each guest in a uniquely local experience, inspiring their curiosity from arrival to in-room, dining, meeting spaces and beyond.

Carol Hoeller, Head of Global Hotel Indigo® for IHG, commented: “Texas is one of the most popular destinations in the US, due to the unique personalities of its many cities and neighborhoods, drawing both business and leisure travelers from around the world. The originality of the state, and the rich culture of communities like Las Colinas, is one of the reasons Hotel Indigo® is such a great fit here. We are excited to work with Shreem Capital and Type Six Design and Development and congratulate them on this new project.”
