After the whole renderings debacle, I thought I'd start a thread for the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium. We really have no clue what it will look like and have only been teased about it. All we really know is:

- The exterior will be tile, concrete and steel, no brick
- 75,000 permanent seats, expandable to ~100,000
- The site is huge and the whole is huge. Many construction experts are commenting its one of the biggest they have physically heard of
- Permanent roof with a hole in it like Texas Stadium, with a retractable roof to cover it.
- Two huge arches will span over the stadium
- The number of suites will be absurd and include field level suites like Kuwait new stadium.
- Opens in 2009.
- Should have exterior video screens
- Something about it is very, very top secret. So much that the Cowboys really don't want to show any renderings.
- The cost is in the $1billion range
- Located in Arlington, Texas, just south and west of Ameriquest Field(Texas Rangers)

If wondering, Arlington is about 15-20 minutes west of downtown Dallas on a good traffic day.

Awesome! As a HUGE Dallas Cowboys fan as well as a fan of the entire DFW Metroplex, I'm glad to see this! Right now it's an enormous hole in the ground but soon enough it will be an awesome football stadium for America's Team!

I'm also a huge Cowboy fan. Some people got a little bit of a peek on Cowboy boards but not much. It looked like a 21st century version of Texas Stadium. No matter how it looks, they need to call it either Tom Landy Field or just Texas Stadium. No TXU field or any other shit ass corporate named stadium.

Seems a bit over the top not to release the plans because of a terrorist threat, I don't know of any other stadium that has ever taken that line. This is the stadium with the massive retractable roof isn't it? If so it will be interesting to see if they are able to build the stadium without any major problems.

The only thing seen so far that's close to the descriptions was a Texas Stadium on steroids looking thing with two arches. Nothing like the flying saucer conceptual renderings.

They've also mentioned competitive advantage as to why so secretive, so I'm guessing there will be something super unique about it? Looking at the site itself, there is nothing symmetrical about the bowl(good!). Wonder if that will be part of the big deal, or some very open end. Remember there was talk of a huge retractable wall at one or both ends in the conceptual. Who knows. We here in Dallas are totally at a loss when it comes to this stadium.

You mean no "fake brick" like the textured concrete panels so popular with retro ballparks?

I mention it, because its neighbor is Ameriquest Field which was built with Texas Red Brick and Limestone. It has been mentioned many times that this will be a modern design. No retro, no bricks.

It definitely appears that the New Cowboys Stadium will be a very stark contrast to The Ballpark and its adjacent (planned) Glorypark development.

That's from the conceptual renderings. They were to conceptualize:

Modern architecture. Large retractable roof that goes from completely covered to partially covered. Lowest tier below ground level, retractable walls behind endzones and 3 tiers. More recent renderings(ones I don't want to be sued over), show something more like Texas Stadium, with two arches running over the stadium. Nothing seen of the interior yet. This thing is top secret for whatever reason.

I would go to dallasnews.com and search the archive. You'll see the legal disclaimer even though it really isn't much to see. Just one small view from outside of one end. According to the Cowboys, its not even a final design.
