Cowboys' new headquarters an eye-popping $1.5 billion marvel

The team's new facility in Frisco, Texas is expected to cost more than AT&T Stadium and its features are dazzling.

The Dallas Cowboys' new headquarters — dubbed The Star — might be Jerry Jones' most extravagant vision to date. 

Let's start with the pricetag — a whopping $1.5 billion. Jones' AT&T Stadium was built at a cost of $1.3 billion in 2008.

The Dallas Morning News breaks down the financial structure, for example, the city of Frisco, Texas and its school district are funding a combined $90 million to the facility.

High school football is a big part of The Star's attraction, and the reason the school district is a part-owner. The integration with schools from surround areas is a major part of the facility.

The real wow factor is found in The Star's amenities. The Cowboy Club membership offers a terrace view to watch practice; the Cowboys Fit Club (where the cheerleaders work out); talks given by coaches, players and owners; dining options; private and corporate meeting space; billiards tables and a private rooftop swimming pool.

There's a hotel, event center, a 200,000-square foot sports medicine facility, restaurants, state-of-the-art War Room featuring an interactive video wall, and tons more.

There's even a hot tub for Cowboys players named "Lake Landry," which is reported to be one of the largest ever built and is described as having "insane" technology.
