Dallas Cowboys plan to build most expensive stadium in NFL history
The $1 billion, 2.3 million-sf Cowboys Stadium, planned for a site in Arlington, Texas, will have an approximate capacity of 80,000 and the flexibility to accommodate up to 100,000 fans. The stadium features signature monumental arches, a 661,000-sf retractable roof, glass retractable end-zone doors, and an 86-foot-high canted glass wall. The world's largest center-hung video scoreboard will be suspended 110 feet above the field. The stadium is being designed by HKS Architects of Dallas. The Dallas office of Oklahoma-based Manhattan Construction has been selected as the general contractor. Expected completion date: late 2009.
