$150M Live! by Loews Hotel Coming to Texas in 2019
- May 08, 2017
Loews Hotels & Co., The Cordish Cos., and the Texas Rangers unveiled the plans for a hotel and convention center at Texas Live. The $250 million dining, entertainment and hospitality destination is being developed in partnership between the three companies and the city of Arlington, Texas.
The new $150 million flagship hotel, Live! by Loews – Arlington, Texas, will be the first of its kind in the country, providing guests an experience that blends sports and entertainment with hospitality and amenities. Texas Live!, anchored by Live! by Loews, is a part of a $4 billion vision for the Arlington Entertainment District that includes the Rangers’ new $1 billion ballpark and preservation of Globe Life Park.
Designed by HKS Architects, the 14-story, 302-key glass tower will feature several unique resort-style spaces and amenities. These include an event lawn, an outdoor infinity edge pool with two bars, private cabanas, lounge space and fire pits, a rooftop terrace and a two-story, 35,000-square-foot Grand Event Center that will include a ballroom that seats 1,500 people and an executive boardroom with five meeting rooms. The hotel will also offer the Revolver Brewing Brewery Bar and Tasting room, a 6,000 square-foot signature restaurant, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, a porte-cochere entrance with 24-hour valet services and coffee bar.
Texas Live! is expected to create 3,025 new jobs for Arlington and Tarrant County, including 2,000 construction jobs and 1,025 permanent jobs, along with vendor opportunities for local, minority, women and veteran-owned businesses. The dining and entertainment space in the district will open in 2018, with Live! by Loews scheduled to open in 2019.
“An upscale hotel in the Entertainment District has long been a dream for Arlington and we couldn’t be more excited to see that dream become a reality with the addition of a Loews branded hotel,” said Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams, in prepared remarks. “With this announcement, we have just combined three world-class businesses with a world-class destination.”
