The City of Irving will honor the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at 6 p.m. Jan. 15 at the Irving Arts Center, 3333 N. MacArthur Blvd. The annual observance of the humanitarian and civil rights leader’s legacy will feature a radio show tribute including the news, pop culture, politics, sports and history of the 1960s. The event will present a compilation of audio, video and live performances from leading vocal and performing artists.

If your goal for 2017 is to find a high-paying job in an affordable city, you may want to start your search in Texas or North Carolina. Each state boasts two of the best U.S. cities for job seekers, according to a new study.

The Patel Law Group has acquired an Irving office building with plans to begin a major upgrade that will bring the law firm and closing office for Fidelity National Title into the Las Colinas Urban Center.

The numbers are illuminating.

During the past fiscal year, Irving’s construction valuation topped $819 million — the highest in 30 years. Six years ago, it was $348 million, less than half of today’s number. The city issued 616 new home permits last year — more than double the number from six years ago. The average new home permit value is just under $400,000.
