August 6, 2018 — KWA Construction, a leading general contractor specializing in multi-family developments, has completed the first phase of construction on one of the most highly-anticipated apartment communities in North Texas — Arlington Commons. The upscale, urban-style complex has helped spearhead the revitalization of a former neglected neighborhood along Lamar Boulevard. The redevelopment is expected to contribute approximately $300 – $400 million in value to the City of Arlington.
“This project has been extremely well-received by the Arlington City Council and various community groups, which has made it an exciting privilege for the KWA team to build the very first units and amenities. Arlington Commons serves as a great example of how development can be transformative for a city,” said KWA Construction President Brian Webster.
Developer The Nehemiah Company selected KWA to build Phase I, featuring a four-story 353-unit apartment complex and covered parking garage that sits on 5.56 acres of the 22.18-acre project. Designed by JHP Architecture, the luxurious one- and two-bedroom units, ranging in size from 580 – 1,418-square feet, offer open and spacious floor plans, wood-style flooring, quartz or granite countertops, spa-inspired bathrooms, stainless steel appliances and stunning city views from balconies or patios.
Additional apartment amenities include a designer clubhouse, fully-equipped wellness center and gym, resort-style pool with a tanning ledge and cabanas, outdoor entertainment area featuring fire pits and TVs, dog park and beautifully landscaped courtyards. Furthermore, Arlington Commons is just two miles away from premiere attractions like the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Texas Rangers ballpark and the upcoming $250 million entertainment complex called Texas Live, offering easy access to recreation, restaurants and retail.
After construction on the next three phrases are complete in 2026, the $200 million redevelopment project will boast approximately 1,300 units.
