The development of the new Texas Rangers ballpark is expected to unite fans in Arlington for the coming 2020 season. The $1.1 billion stadium features a retractable roof, strong exterior facades, and a large glass wall on the north entry of stadium. This entry provides a connection to the Texas Live! entertainment district featuring restaurants, retail, and other entertainment venues. In addition to the ability to provide a climate-controlled environment, modern ballpark amenities such as enhanced concessions, kid’s zone, suites, loge spaces, field level boxes, and special viewing porches have been provided to enhance the fan experience. The venue also features office space and below grade parking.

The new ballpark includes an extensive system of vehicle barriers to enforce vehicle standoff to the facility and protect patrons and the structure from accidental or malicious vehicle impact. Walter P Moore worked to provide designs for rated vehicle barriers walls that could be integrated with the architecture of the site and building to provide significant protection while maintaining an inviting site for fans. Several different barrier walls have been designed to achieve different ratings as appropriate for site conditions and potential vehicle speeds.
