Cordish Companies from Maryland just became Texas Ranger’s developer for a new hub that will cater not just baseball events but also improve fan experience into a different level according to a Dallas Morning News article from June 1. They say,
“The Spark Coworking operation is the next phase of the sprawling Texas Live development that surrounds the Rangers’ Globe Life Field and Choctaw Stadium.
“It’s hard to believe we started in 2015 with a vote of confidence from the city and look at where we are today,” said Cordish chief operating officer Zed Smith. “We have a $1 billion of development under cranes, and we have more to go.
“Spark will be a major anchor,” Smith said. “That was a commitment the Rangers made years ago when they wanted to build the new stadium — they would commit to utilizing this space.”
Cordish and the Rangers’ development plan in Arlington is aimed at bringing visitors to do more than just watch baseball.
“The whole idea is to expand the fan experience,” Smith said. “When you come to Texas Live, you get sports and entertainment — that’s what this is all supposed to be about.”
The hub’s enormous space will contain different amenities and sights as both the developers and the Rangers are looking forward to maximizing every inch of the planned hub according to a Dallas Innovates article from June 2 which reports,
“We’re constantly seeking innovative ways to utilize and maximize new and existing amenities in our development projects in the Entertainment District, and the addition of Spark to Choctaw Stadium is the latest example of these efforts,” Smith said in the statement.
Amenities will include workspaces and balconies with “incredible views” of both Globe Life Field and Choctaw Stadium’s new infield; furnished private workspaces and suites; on-site meeting rooms; a community kitchen, member cafe and lounge spaces; an onsite podcast studio; a dedicated mother’s room and wellness space; branded office signage and on-site digital signage; garage parking; and other features from high-speed internet to concierge mail services.
“Our vision for Spark Coworking is to provide the local business and entrepreneurial community with an affordable, appealing and flexible way to locate and grow and manage their businesses,” said Shervonne Cherry, the company’s director of community & partnerships.”
Arlington Mayor Jim Ross couldn’t be any more excited with the latest development in his city as the developers have decided to land Spark Coworking’s location in Arlington.
