FRISCO (CBSDFW.COM) – O’Brien Architects has provided the latest video renderings of the Dallas Cowboys headquarters and practice facility, set to be built in Frisco.
The new training facilities for America’s Team will have outdoor practice fields, plaza area and an indoor stadium on the property at Warren Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway.
The computer drawn animation is enough to excite residents who live near the future headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys.
“It looked better than I expected it to look. Why is that? there are more features I thought it was going to be the practice facility and that’s about it,” said Prosper resident Matt Kiefer.
Frisco’s city council received its first look this week at what people are calling Cowboys Alley.
“We provided a lot of feedback to their initial plan and they took it to heart essentially incorporated all of our comments it’s going to be a world class facility,” said Frisco Mayor Pro Tem Jeff Cheney.
City leaders approved engineering contracts during Tuesday nights meeting. The city has committed $115 million to the project with the Cowboys paying for any costs above that. They said they hope the training facility, which is scheduled to open in 2016, will live up to what they say is an impressive video.
“We knew we had a partner in the Cowboys on board that has a great vision they want to do unique things they want to be successful in what they do and we’re very excited,” said Frisco Mayor Maher Maso.
The groundbreaking will happen this summer.
