New Renderings Offer Details On Cowboys HQs, Practice Facility Plans For Frisco
Renderings released yesterday offer the "first glimpse" of what the new Cowboys HQs and multiuse event center in Frisco "will look like," according to Valerie Wigglesworth of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. The project "includes a 12,000-seat stadium, an outdoor plaza spanning nearly 2 acres, a six-story team headquarters building and two private practice fields." A 1,500-space parking garage will be "constructed below" the HQs. The site plan "will be on the May 27 agenda" for Frisco's Planning & Zoning Commission. The remainder of the 91-acre site will be "privately developed with retail, restaurants, offices and possibly a hotel." One of the "unique features" about the plan is that a 25-foot fire lane required near the stadium will be "covered in green turf that’s been tested and approved by the Fire Department." The stadium will be "about 18 feet below ground with a split-level bowl that allows people entering the stadium at ground level to go up or down to the various seating areas." The Cowboys’ two outdoor practice fields also will be "below ground level with screening to ensure privacy." No public viewing "is allowed" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 5/7).
