In expanding their fan base around the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the Dallas Stars Hockey Club asked BOKA Powell to create this new hockey facility for the organization and the City of McKinney in the growing community development of Craig Ranch. The facility, complete with two NHL size ice rinks, will provide space for recreational league ice hockey and figure skating, as well as locker rooms for multiple teams and individuals. Unlike other centers, this facility will have party rooms at rink level to allow for events capable of both viewing and participating in the skate activities. The facility has rental and administrative space, as well as a Dallas Stars Pro-Shop to supply memorabilia and equipment for league play. There will also be a sports bar for all-around festivities after the game and/or club viewing Dallas Stars games on national television.
This new and unique entertainment center is focused around recreational and semi-professional hockey/arena football, but also provides an exciting new venue for the city of Cedar Park for concerts and other entertainment events. The facility provides 6,000 seats arranged in a bowl configuration around the center floor, with 12 to 16 luxury suites, 2 party suites, concessions, retail, hockey, recreational skating, gymnastics, indoor soccer, arena football, and other amenities within approximately 200,000 square feet of space on 24 acres of land adjacent to Hwy 183A. Cedar Park is 17 miles Northwest of Austin, Texas and is quickly becoming the ‘place to be’ as a suburb of Austin. The exterior of the facility utilizes regional materials and is designed to fit into the local and cultural environment of South Texas. BOKA Powell assembled one of the finest sports and entertainment project development teams available in the region under the Ownership of Norman Green, former owner of the Dallas Stars and formerly of the Board of Governors of the National Hockey League.
The Golf Club at Fossil Creek, located in Fort Worth, Texas, was the first piece of an ambitious Master Plan developed by Woodbine Development Corporation in the late 1980’s. The Golf Club was originally part of the Marriott Golf’s Resort Chain noted for resorts such as Camelback and Shadow Hills in Arizona. Designed by Arnold Palmer, the golf course accommodates approximately 45,000 – 50,000 rounds of golf a year. The design was inspired by the view of exposed limestone cliffs and original farm structures on site. The building was carefully sited on a bluff at the edge of an existing forest to take advantage both of views from inside the dining area and of shade offered to the exterior deck areas. The 16,000 square foot facility houses a full-service Banquet Kitchen, Great Room (dining), Pro Shop, Club Room, Offices, and Men’s & Women’s Locker Rooms on the upper level. The partially buried basement level contains storage for approximately 75 golf carts and a maintenance shop. The determination of the finished floor elevation for the second level was critical to the successful operation of tournaments. To solve this, a front-end loader was brought to the site. The Club Manager and Architect were actually raised to the exact height where they could view the cart staging area, the golfers coming off the 18th green, and the No. 1 tee box all at the same time. This spot is where the Silo Pro Shop, which can be seen in the photographs above, now stands.
