Texas Rangers unveils plans for new $1bn stadium

WCN Editorial Team 24 May 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

Professional baseball team Texas Rangers has unveiled plans for a new $1bn stadium.

The proposed ballpark will include a retractable roof for climate control and a shelter for fans during the hot summer season. It is also expected to have similar design concepts as the ones featured in the construction of the Globe Life Park.

The Arlington City Council will consider designating a venue project and authorising a master agreement for a public-private partnership with the Texas Rangers this evening.

The new proposed master agreement could see the Rangers' partnership with Arlington extend until January 1, 2054.

The project’s construction cost would be shared equally between the Texas Rangers and the City of Arlington.

Texas Rangers co-chairman Ray Davis said: "The Rangers and Arlington have enjoyed a great partnership for 45 years, and we are excited about the possibility of calling this city home for many years to come.

"A baseball park is a very special place and the Rangers are committed to providing the best possible experience for our fans.

"The construction of a new facility with a retractable roof and so many other amenities would allow us to enhance that experience in a manner that is not presently possible."

The park is expected to be complete by April 2021.
