Arlington's Premier Destination is Expanding
The next phase of Arlington’s Entertainment District will include an additional 888 hotel rooms, new convention center, corporate office headquarters, mixed-use residential building, small business coworking and incubator space, and additional dining, retail and entertainment options.
The $810 million expansion is the next phase of a greater $4 billion vision by the City of Arlington, Texas Rangers, The Cordish Companies and Loews Hotels & Co that began with the $250 million Texas Live!, which opened August 2018, and Live! by Loews Hotel which opened in August 2019. Together, along with the Rangers’ new Globe Life Field, the total investment of new development by the partnership totals over $2.25 billion. The new mixed-use project will be a major economic engine to the area and is expected to generate approximately $1.8 billion in economic benefits to Arlington and Tarrant County.
The Texas Rangers, The Cordish Companies and Loews Hotels & Co continue their commitment to create maximum community benefits to the City of Arlington, Tarrant County, Arlington and the Arlington Independent School District. From the onset, the partnership committed to an unprecedented Community Benefits Plan for Texas Live! and Live! by Loews – Arlington, TX, which created 3,000 jobs; exceeded MWBE construction goals; promoted apprenticeships for qualified local, minority and women construction workers; implemented local and diverse workforce hiring practices; assisted Arlington with community bookings; and, established a Community Advisory Committee to oversee the execution of the Community Benefits Plan.
Just as the first phase served as a model project for Tarrant County and Arlington, the next phase will support the community and its residents with the same commitment. The project is expected to create an additional 3,000+ jobs and generate $78 million for Arlington ISD, $15 million for Tarrant County College and $30 million for Tarrant County and the hospital district over 30 years.
