    The Star continues to take shape in Frisco.

    Wednesday, cameras were allowed inside the new $1.5 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys.

    Team staff moved into their completed headquarters last week, and the Omni Hotel will open in summer 2017.

    Crews "topped off" the 16-story hotel Wednesday by hoisting a Leyland Spruce tree to the top floor. The tree is supposed to symbolize good fortune.

    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and sons Jerry Jones Jr. and Stephen Jones were on hand for the ceremony.

    "Standing here, as I look out here to the great project that's evolving around Totoya, I look to the north and I see all the promise we've got up there and I realize what a tremendous asset we could have in this new Omni facility," Jerry Jones said.

    "Frisco is recognized as a sports mecca. It just is," Mayor Maher Maso said.

    The Cowboys players will move into their new home when they return from summer camp in Oxnard, California, next month.

    Eight high school football teams will use the field at the Ford Center at The Star for the first time on Aug. 27.

    Tickets to the day-long event are sold out.
