Arlington, Texas, home to the new AT&T Stadium, which also serves as the home to the Dallas Cowboys, scored a huge victory in when it was announced the stadium would be built in this city. The stadium, which is located within walking distance of the Texas Rangers ballpark, has been a great economic driver for this city. This funds to build this structure were, at least in part, subsidized by a 2004 sales tax increase, which was voter approved, and that which would serve to subsidize a 30-year, $325 million bond package designed to help pay for what is now the home of one of the greatest teams in the NFL. The city was also able to receive some revenue from the naming rights deal. This was a typical win-win-win for all parties, being Arlington, the Cowboys and Texas.

Arlington is also home to Six Flags and numerous other tourist attractions. The fact remains, however, that there is a parcel of land adjacent to the stadium that is completely undeveloped. This 30-acre parcel was recently sold, however, and new development will be coming to this once-barren land in the coming months. The nature of that development remains to be seen, but mixed commercial will likely be the hallmark of its future use. This area in Arlington will forever be changed by how this land is used, and is already completely benefitting from the commercial success the stadium has proven to be.

Nearby Dallas, only 20 miles from Arlington, was home to the Cowboys since oilman Clint Murchison started the franchise, and at that time it would also be the first NFL team south of Washington, D.C.. Dallas flourished along with their Cowboys, and neighborhoods such as University Park and Highland Park, really came into their own in the over 50 years since the Cowboys came to their city. Other neighborhoods, like Bluff View, with its home dotting cliffs overlooking Bachman Creek, and Knox Park, which is easily one of the most popular neighborhoods in Dallas with its numerous popular lofts at its center, offers a nice mix of residential and commercial districts. These neighborhoods are largely riddled with malls and several commercial outlets, and some pretty well known like the Galleria Shopping Center in the Richardson neighborhood in Dallas. Commercial districts are not arbitrarily erected, nor do they thrive in lackluster economic circumstance. Texas has a solid economy and a population of people that just love their football, so it is no wonder the Cowboys franchise seems to have had a completely positive effect on Dallas.
In fact, the Love Field neighborhood of Dallas, home to Southwest Airlines, is a fine example of how a commercial entity, in this case the airport, can have a direct and positive impact on an area. Most residents of Love Field work for in the airline industry, and Love Field has thrived congruent with the success of Southwest Airlines. A slightly more loose translation of the success of Southwest Airlines could be attributed to the congruent success of the Cowboys, in that they draw thousands into this area, every year. The collective rise of Dallas may not be able to be directly connected to the Cowboys, but for the most part they seemed to flourish together. It would appear the Cowboys might be bringing that same spirit to Arlington, and although much remains to be seen, it can only all be good!
