The Epic: Grand Central, Grand Prairie, TX: In 2015, the Texas city of Grand Prairie had the ambition to build a lasting recreational space in the spirit of New York’s Central Park. To make their dream a reality, the City Council chose the best developers for the job, including OpenAire, to create Epic Waters for the Epic Grand Central. The Epic is a monumental complex that will provide 172 acres of concentrated recreation space for all of Grand Prairie’s 185,000 citizens. The 70,000 square-foot (6,503.21 square meter) Epic Waters will be the largest indoor waterpark in the US with an all-aluminum framed enclosure and a retractable roof. This could only be made possible with OpenAire’s signature thermally broken aluminum construction, polycarbonate roof and insulating glass at all the vertical walls. The Epic will be completed in the spring of 2017 and will make for a world-class destination that truly reflects its name.
