The independent bank is now based in North Dallas and owns the just-approved office site in Irving. The more than 5-acre corner site in the Las Colinas Urban Center was previously zoned for construction of two hotels. The council voted unanimously for the zoning change. “That’s really the gateway into the urban center,” said Irving city councilman Al Zapanta. "Changing from hotel to office buildings is very important. “We haven’t had office buildings in quite a while.” Two office buildings and a parking garage are planned on the 5-acre site.
