LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The land for a possible indoor dirt arena has been purchased by a developer and would be available for the Texas Tech Equestrian team and other dirt floor events in the city.

The potential new 8,000 seat facility would be located near the Lubbock Preston-Smith International Airport in what will be called Regis Park, which is on 288 acres.

Regis Park is a new development which will include residential, retail and education buildings. The dirt arena is just one potential part of the development, which could hold a rodeo or monster truck event.

The developers, Texas Investment Partners, told KCBD the building could be completed as soon as Fall of 2020.

The plans have been drafted by the Texas Tech School of Architecture.

Texas Tech University’s UrbanTech Design Center and Texas Investment Partners will announce plans for a major community project at 4:30 p.m. Friday (April 6) at Texas Tech’s Innovation Hub at Research Park, 3911 Fourth St.

David Driskill, director of UrbanTech Design Center, and Robert Dwyer, managing partner of Dominion Real Estate Partners, the managing company of Texas Investment Partners, will reveal the project. Following the reveal, Driskill, Dwyer, District 1 Lubbock City Councilman Juan Chadis and others involved in the project will host a Q&A with media and community members.

Texas Tech’s Mariachi Los Matadores will perform before and after the announcement.
