Arlington Commons The 1,300-unit development, Arlington Commons, is located near Globe Life Park.

ARLINGTON, TX—Arlington Commons is the largest multifamily redevelopment project in Arlington history and one of the largest in North Texas. As construction of the much-anticipated complex is nearing an end, the project value it will bring to the city has jumped from $200 million to estimates of $300 to $400 million, according to Robert Kembel, president of The Nehemiah Company. Aside from the monetary increase, the significance of the complex speaks for itself.

Arlington Commons is replacing aging apartment complexes that were originally built in the 1970s and will offer a high-end living option with rents not exceeding the market rate. The redevelopment has garnered support from the community, including $10.5 million in economic incentives from the Arlington city council. And, mayor Jeff Williams mentioned Arlington Commons as a highlight of the city’s success in his state of the city address this past fall.
