The Ford Center at The Star


This mixed-use development is a one-of-a-kind joint venture among the City of Frisco, Frisco ISD, and the Dallas Cowboys which includes the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters, an indoor multi-use special events center, two outdoor practice fields, an Omni Hotel, a below-grade parking garage, and various
mixed-use developments.

The 12,000-seat indoor Multi-Use Special Events Center holds Frisco ISD high school football games and other special events. It serves as the Cowboys’ practice facility shielding the team and fans from the elements. Situated next to the Special Events Center is the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters overlooking two outdoor practice fields. Dallas Cowboys employees will occupy a portion of the six-story, 400,000-sf building while the majority of the space will be available for lease. Adjacent to the Special Events Center is a 300-key Omni Frisco Hotel overlooking the entire development, including a roof top pool above the Grand Ballroom. The two-level below-grade parking garage is located below part of the development with
1,500 spaces.

Walter P Moore provided structural engineering services for the Multi-Use Special Events Center, the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters, the Omni Hotel, and parking structures of this development.
