Plans to construct a resort and convention center complex on land near Lewisville Lake in Texas could be held up if the land owner doesn’t approve.
Even though the Lewisville city council approved this $161 million public-private project, no action can be taken unless U.S. Army Corps of Engineers also agrees. The organization owns the 60 acres of land where Lewisville officials want to build the 300-room resort and connecting 56,000 square-foot convention center.
The plan also includes construction of other businesses and a high-rise apartment complex on nearby private land.
Also holding up the planned construction is whether real estate development firm Wynne/Jackson Inc. will take on the project. The company has 180 days to make a decision, and if it doesn’t become the developer for the project, the city of Lewisville can look for other prospects.
