KWA Begins Construction on $200M Multifamily Project in Metro Dallas

ARLINGTON, TEXAS — KWA Construction has broken ground on Phase I of Arlington Commons, the largest multifamily redevelopment project in Arlington’s history. Designed by JHP Architecture/Urban Design, the 1,300-unit development will be located at 425 E. Lamar Blvd. near Globe Life Park.

Developer The Nehemiah Co. expects the $200 million project to be completed in 2026. General contractor KWA Construction recently began demolition at the site. Phase I of the four-phase development will occupy 5.6 acres of the 22.2-acre site and consist of a four-story, 353-unit apartment complex and garage. Phase I will also include 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.

The redevelopment has garnered $10.5 million in economic incentives from the Arlington City Council. Floor plans will consist of one- and two-bedroom units ranging from 777 to 1,281 square feet, with private balconies or patios available.

Amenities at Arlington Commons will include a swimming pool, fountains, fire pit and outdoor kitchen. KWA Construction expects to complete Phase I in the next two years.
