11/16/2022 – cosma global leader in experiential media and immersive technology, today announced plans to build its second public venue in Grandscape in Colony, Texas. The company’s forthcoming venue will bring entertainment to life through its cutting-edge technology, seamlessly bridging the gap between virtual and physical reality.
Cosm was founded by Dallas in 2020 Mirasol capital, through a series of acquisitions of companies in spatial computing, custom design, engineering and immersive video production. In addition, the company has an office location on the Old Parkland campus where Mirasol is headquartered. With roots in Dallas, opening a venue in the area has been on Cosm’s roadmap since its inception.
“Led by CEO Jeb Terry, Cosm is leveraging its technology to create a new category of immersive entertainment called ‘Shared Reality’ and is working with partners worldwide to stream live content to both physical venues and virtual worlds” said Steve Winn, CEO of Mirasol Capital and majority owner of Cosm. “We’re just getting started and have plans to open venues around the world.”
“Dallas and North Texas are in Cosm’s DNA,” added Jeb Terry, CEO and President of Cosm. “Not only is the area experiencing explosive growth, I’m from Dallas and have family there. We have always viewed a North Texas location as the central anchor for our business. There is an incredible opportunity to grow with the Colony community and we are proud to call Grandscape ‘home’ for our second venue.” Upon completion, Grandscape will be one of the largest and most unique mixed-use real estate developments in the country. The sprawling lifestyle destination spans more than 400 acres and expects millions of visitors each year, offering retail, entertainment, living, dining and attractions. Cosm is located in the heart of Grandscape’s entertainment precinct, adjacent to the well-loved outdoor stage and lawn.
“We are excited to have Cosm join the Grandscape family. This innovative venue will delight visitors with a truly unique, immersive experience.” Jeff Lind, President of Grandscape.
