WCN Editorial Team 25 Oct 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

The Cordish Companies and the Texas Rangers have announced the start of the construction work on the Texas Live! development phase I in Arlington, Texas.

The development will be situated between the Texas Rangers' Globe Life Park and the Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

The $250M first phase of the project will involve the construction of 18,600sq m of dining and entertainment space, a 5,000-capacity outdoor event pavilion, a 300-room hotel, and a 3,250sq m meeting/convention facility.

Rangers’ executive vice president for business operations Rob Matwick said: "We were obviously hoping that a few more October games would delay this for a little longer.

"However, the Rangers had a great season with a second consecutive division title and now the excitement grows as we will begin site work for this long-awaited development in the Arlington Entertainment District. We can't wait to get started."

The project’s dining and entertainment element is expected to open in early 2018, while the hotel/convention facility is expected to open in the end of 2018. The project is anticipated to create over 3,000 new jobs once completed.
