Development Team

The teams behind Texas Live!

The Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers won the American League West Division in 2015, the fourth time in the last six years that the team had advanced to postseason play. In that span (2010-15), the Rangers have won 525 regular season games, fifth most among the 30 major league teams. The franchise enters its 45th year in Arlington in 2016 since moving from Washington, D.C. after the 1971 season. After playing its games at Arlington Stadium from 1972-93, the club moved to The Ballpark in Arlington, which was built as a public-private partnership between the Rangers and the City of Arlington. Changing its name to Globe Life Park in Arlington in February 2014, the facility has hosted a pair of World Series, the 1995 All-Star Game, and more than 57 million fans in its 22-year history. Rangers Baseball Express LLC became the sixth owner in Rangers history when it completed purchase of the club on August 12, 2010. Ray C. Davis and Bob R. Simpson serve as Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors of the investor group.

The Cordish Companies

The Cordish Companies’ origins date back to 1910 and encompass four generations of privately-held, family ownership. During the past ten decades, The Cordish Companies has grown into a global leader in Real Estate Development, Gaming & Hospitality, Entertainment Management and International Urban Planning & Development.

This project is another significant investment in an Arlington economy that already has tremendous momentum. This state-of-the-art development will expand the city’s ability to host even more major events and conventions. We greatly appreciate the Texas Rangers’ continued investment in our community and we applaud their selection of The Cordish Companies, the premiere mixed-use developer in the country, as their development partner. I am pleased to state that the Texas Rangers and The Cordish Companies have made significant commitments to ensure that construction and ongoing operation of Texas Live! will generate maximum benefits to our local community with initiatives such as local and minority hiring, purchasing and hosting of free community events and festivals, and the creation of a community advisory board. Texas Live! will be a model project for community-based development that we hope other developers will emulate.
