I apologize if this has all been posted elsewhere.  

 

The Rangers and Arlington are soon to break ground on a $200 million development directly across the street from the Ballpark which will include several bar/restaurant/retail sites as well as a hotel and meeting space.

 

Here's the link to the project's website, which includes several renderings:  LINK

 

The Star-Telegram has run two speculative stories on the project recently, comparing it to similar projects near the baseball stadium in downtown St. Louis (LINK) and near the hockey arena in the Greater Phoenix area (LINK).

Austin, your link comes back to the forum.  You must have copied the wrong one.

Ask yourself, why is the Star Telegram leading the opposition to this new ballpark project?   I find it underhanded that the Dallas Morning News is using the StarTelegram in its campaign to undermine Arlington's goal of keeping the Rangers....Dallas has regretted, second guessed itself and moans still to this date for not doing everything to get the Cowboys to build a stadium there.  Arlington did not make that same mistake.

 

 

 

  • Brett Shipp and WFAA have taken the lead in the media as far as rooting against the stadium goes.....

 

 As for Dallas' core media outlet, there is a whispering campaign for a "No" vote.  (post#85) .... Y'all know why?

 

With 40 days remaining until referendum day, the Dallas lead "whispering campaign is no longer - the Assault is now on!

 

"Beware; Be Afraid Arlington." But Downtown Dallas, Inc., former Belo Media Corporation, and former Fort Worth Star Telegram columnist Mitchell Schnurman...we see ya'll.

 

Arlington, Fort Worth and the rest of Tarrant County (Dallas-Southlake not dependable) must stick together.

First of all, with every single big project Arlington underwrites, the repeated town balk, the false start, is omitting even a mention of commuter trains to downtowns Fort Worth and Dallas; second, the location is excellent for a development like GloryPark aka !!!Texas Live!!!  third, I do think Dallas will get a MLB team, National League through expansion or relocation from outside the state -- Rangers would not have left.

 

Seems like the decades old dream will stick this time, and I cannot wait. Next step is a couple resortlike additions along the lines of Gaylord Texas in scope/scale build up the connection to Six Flags. I'd LOVE one of those indoor ski dealios packed into the Arlington entertainment destination.... as a destination, North Texas will have more stuff like that. Some will go with the amphitheater and race track in Grand Prairie, but Arlington will fill up with destinations pulling across the entire South Central US, not just North Texas.

I would be shocked if that happens, unless by "Dallas" you mean Collin County. :smwink: "Arlington is too far for us to drive on a school night."

I had the same thoughts about Dallas' chances of a Central Dallas MLB team.  There is not any demand or desire to divide MLB money among more cities or is there a realistic chance that any city that would let its ball team relocate.

 

Dallas has the Mavericks and the Stars - be contented why don't ya?

When the Rangers announced that they were staying put, that killed about 95% chances of Dallas getting a team of their own. 

MLB wants to expand, but Dallas proper isn't even on the radar...
