Arlington, Texas Rangers consider $200M development project near ballpark

The city of Arlington and the Texas Rangers baseball club are considering a $200 million development collaboration that could include a 300-bed hotel and a 35,000-square foot convention space near the team’s home at Globe Life Park.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that the project will be evaluated Tuesday by City Council during a work session. If the agreement is ready, the Council could vote on the proposal at its regular meeting Tuesday night, the Star-Telegram said.

Mayor Jeff Williams told the newspaper that the impetus for the project came from the team.

“It’s a Rangers-led project,” Williams told the Star-Telegram, “but the city is participating, too, and we’re very excited.”

According to the newspaper, the project is adjacent to Globe Life Park, and would include about 100,000 square feet of restaurants, retail businesses and entertainment venues.

A news release said that construction on the hotel and convention space would begin by the end of 2016, according to the report.
