HKS knocks one out the park with US$1bn Texas Rangers stadium design

by Matthew Campelli | 09 Jan 2017
For us to have the opportunity to work on this new venue is one of the highest honours we can achieve
– HKS principal Bryan Trubey

The architecture firm behind Minnesota Vikings’ US$1.1bn (£905.9m, €1bn) US Bank Stadium has been appointed by Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise the Texas Rangers to design a new ballpark.

HKS will develop a design for the venue to include a retractable roof for climate control.

It will also have a capacity of 42,000, down from the 50,000 spectators Texas Rangers’ can accommodate at its current Globe Life stadium, with fans closer to the field of play.

The US$1bn (£823.6m, €951.1m) cost of the stadium will be split between the franchise and the city of Arlington.

HKS is developing a name for working on mega stadium projects. The company has recently been appointed to design the new Los Angeles Rams stadium in Inglewood, which is also expected to cost more than US$1bn to build.

Arlington mayor Jeff Williams said the Texas-based firm was “first-rate”, adding: “HKS had to prove themselves. They had to come forward with great creativity and knowledge and earn the opportunity to work on the new ballpark.”

Bryan Trubey, HKS executive vice-president, said the company “feels very deeply about this project”.

“For us to have the opportunity to work on this new venue is one of the highest honours we can achieve,” he said.
