HKS selected to design new ballpark for Arlington

Sports and entertainment design firm was architect of record on Globe Life Park in Arlington

 

The Texas Rangers have announced that HKS has been selected to design the new ballpark to be built in Arlington.

The new ballpark, which is being built as a public-private partnership between the City of Arlington and the Rangers, will not only be the team’s new home but also a multipurpose sports and entertainment venue that will include capabilities for hosting high school, college and international sports as well as entertainment tours.

HKS, a nationally renowned sports and entertainment design firm headquartered in Dallas, USA, served as architect of record on The Ballpark in Arlington (now Globe Life Park in Arlington), which opened in 1994.

“For us, the new Texas Rangers Ballpark development is very special. It carries its own rich identity based on a combination of tradition, heritage, character and ambition that will ultimately represent itself as the premier destination in North Texas,” explained HKS’s Bryan Trubey, executive vice president and principal designer on the project.

“We are delighted to be part of this exciting new development that will impact not only the Texas Rangers and their fans, but the city of Arlington and the entire region for many years to come.” 

“HKS has an outstanding track record of designing iconic sports facilities, both in North Texas and around the country,” added Rangers executive vice president of business operations, Rob Matwick. “HKS’s vision for this new facility will incorporate all of the features that will make this venue the best in Major League Baseball. We look forward to working with them to achieve that result.”

The design for the new ballpark, which will be built on what is now a team parking lot south of Randol Mill Road, will include a retractable roof for climate control and shelter for fans during the hot summer months. The new venue – designed with a street-side that is different than anything in baseball – will complement and enhance the fabric of the surrounding Texas Live! development – a mixed-used entertainment district featuring dining, entertainment, a hotel and a convention center.

The design phase of the ballpark is currently underway with construction expected to begin later in the year. The facility is expected to open in time for the start of the 2020 Major League Baseball season.

While designs and costs have not been finalized, a new ballpark and related infrastructure is estimated at US$1bn. The master agreement for this public-private partnership calls for a 50-50 split between the Texas Rangers and the City of Arlington, with the City’s financial contribution capped at US$500m.

Arlington’s ballpark bonds to finance the project were approved by voters in a city referendum on November 8, 2016. The Texas Rangers’ 30-year lease on the city-owned Globe Life Park in Arlington was set to end in 2024. With the new master agreement, the Rangers’ partnership with Arlington extends until January 1, 2054.
