Thursday, Grand Prairie will break ground on the evolution of the massive 172-acre EpicCentral project.
EpicCentral, which is off the George Bush Tollway near Arkansas Lane, is already home to the Epic Waters waterpark and the city’s public safety complex.
The city will now break ground on two connecting hotels with a shared convention center. The hotel and convention center part of the project will cost an estimated $50 million.
$16 million more will go to the construction and development of six restaurant spaces with five restaurants already signed on.
