KWA Construction begins construction on Phase I of Arlington’s 10-year multi-family project
Addison, Texas, February 24, 2016 — Phase I of Arlington Commons, the largest multifamily redevelopment project in Arlington history and one of the largest in North Texas, has broken ground. Designed by JHP Architecture/Urban Design, the approximately 1,300-unit development will be located at 425 E. Lamar Boulevard near Globe Life Park. Developer The Nehemiah Company expects the $200 million project to be fully completed in 2026. General contractor KWA Construction recently began demolition at the site.
With plans to be built over four phases, Phase I will occupy 5.56 acres of the 22.18-acre project and consist of a four-story, 353-unit apartment complex and garage, complete with a 1,589-square foot leasing office, 869-square foot clubhouse, 1,173-square foot fitness center and 2,100-square foot lounge and conference area.
“This is a monumental project for KWA Construction, not only for the opportunity to work on a redevelopment of this scale and with such a high caliber team, but also knowing how truly transformative it will be for Arlington residents,” said Brian Webster, Vice President of KWA Construction.
Arlington Commons is replacing aging apartment complexes that were originally built in the 1970s. The redevelopment has garnered support from the community, including $10.5 million in economic incentives from the Arlington City Council.
Floor plans will consist of one- and two-bedroom units ranging from 777 – 1,281 square feet, with private balconies or patios available. Amenities at the Arlington Commons will include multiple substantial courtyards designed by landscape architect TBG Partners, as well as a swimming pool, fountains, fire pit and outdoor kitchen.
Construction of Phase I is expected to be complete over the next 24 months.
