Concrete was poured this week for the first elevated structural deck for the new Globe Life Field in Arlington's Entertainment District.

The work began on the southeastern portion of the site, on what will be the future lower level concourse. About 500 cubic yards of concrete will cover 11,100 square feet to make up the lower concourse. Completion of lower concourse concrete work is expected later this fall.

New photos taken on Monday, April 16 shows overall progress of the site, including concrete work on the perimeter walls, down 50 feet into the service level. The construction of more than 700 concrete columns continues on the site, with the elevated deck construction following the completion of the concrete columns. The work is being overseen by Manhattan Construction Company, the construction manager of the project.

The official groundbreaking for Globe Life Field took place on September 28, 2017, with construction beginning the following week. The new 1.7 million square foot ballpark, which will be located on 13 acres just south of the current Globe Life Park, will include a retractable roof for climate control and shelter for fans during the hot summer months. Seating capacity is approximately 40,000 for Globe Life Field, which will open in March 2020. HKS is the design architect for the project.
