Arlington, The American Dream City, $200 Million Neighborhood Face-Lift A Reality

Arlington Commons Luxury Rental Groundbreaking Set for February 2016

Arlington, TX: This ten-year project will create a new community where new residents and existing families can enjoy the new outdoor park near a luxury rental redevelopment in the Lamar-Collins overlay, a special zoning area near Globe Life Ballpark in Arlington and AT&T Stadium. The company is proud that the project has received unanimous support from the Arlington City Council and a ‘thumbs-up’ from neighborhood groups, the school district, and other stakeholders.

Arlington council member, Charlie Parker, said replacing aging apartment complexes, built in the 1970s, with high-quality housing, will increase the city’s property tax base and likely spur additional investment. The 1,328-unit Lamar Blvd. public-private luxury development will take nearly a decade to complete. However, the first 353-unit phase, is due to break ground February 5th.

Arlington residents and local developers Howard Porteus and Robert Kembel, extol Mayor Jeff Williams and the city’s support and vision to:

Luxury Development

  • Begin to stabilize housing values in the area.
  • Create a new vibrant lifestyle with high-quality housing never before offered in Arlington.
