Construction on â€¨New Cowboys World Corporate Headquarters Reaches Midpoint
FRISCO, TX About 11 months after officially breaking ground, construction on the new World Headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys and Frisco's Multi-Use Special Event Center (MUEC) has reached the halfway point of completion. Representatives from the City of Frisco, the Frisco Independent School District and the Dallas Cowboys marked the milestone by observing installation of roof trusses over the 12,000 seat indoor multipurpose event center. Despite record rains earlier this year, Manhattan Construction Company, Construction Manager, reports both projects remain on schedule and are expected to open by fall 2016.
"The construction team has done a remarkable job keeping the project on schedule," said Dr. Jeremy Lyon. "Our partnership with the City and the Cowboys continues to grow and thrive. We have something here that will serve as a model of a public-private partnership benefitting all partners. The Star in Frisco and surrounding developments will provide our students, families and fans with a performance and entertainment experience unlike any other in Texas or the nation."
"The synergy surrounding this project is incredible," said Mayor Maher Maso. "Since announcing our public-private partnership, development around this project has evolved into, what we're calling, Frisco's "˜$5 Billion Mile'. The multi-use events center itself will be an unbelievable venue that will host many public events and creating unbelievable opportunities for our students, athletically and academically. The spin off from this project is also impacting the development surrounding the events center with such additional development translating into more tourism and job creation. It all adds up to greater quality of life for our residents, businesses and visitors. We have no doubt, the best is yet to come."
