so this isn't the arena, but it is with the Will Rodgers Complex, can anyone explain to me the open air bard/shed build near Casa Manana a couple years back?

Multipurpose open air arena for equestrian events.  It was used as covered parking during the last Stock Show I went to in 2017.  It might get used for equestrian events during other times of the year.

Yea, the covered parking is what I've seen several times as well. Seemed an odd use to me. And an open air arena seemed odd too as there are already multiple covered equestrian venues on-site.

 

oh well.

Upgrading and expanding the whole Will Rogers Complex - Dickie's being the first significant component in decades - is just the beginning the generation of consistent and extensive growth to the urban topography in Fort Worth.  Scaling and modernizing the Will Rogers Complex to accommodate 2.5-3 million Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo visits represents the safest possible investment. The new arena was expensive but I think will actually pay for itself without heavily relying on algorithmic multipliers to show economic impact.

 

The potential for what's considered Downtown Fort Worth is hard to overstate (...and I sure can enjoy the hyperbole but seems diminishing if to heaped it on in this instance). The real estate between the CBD and Cultural District will not be recognizable in 20 years, this whole swath will be "Downtown". Firm view corridors boundaries are critical in shaping the area. The CBD impact will reach river, augment the view from Amon Carter's lawn, and the view will be nicely framed

These diagrams are pretty neat. They make me feel a little bit less frustrated about the size of our arena.

No surprise given the architect, but I couldn't help but notice that the concourse layout is very similar to the AAC.

...I still wish capacity was an extra 2k, though.

I was downtown briefly yesterday and on my return to the office, I noticed the ridge truss is now being installed that will connect the roof members together.
