KWA Construction has broken ground on the first phase of Arlington Commons, the largest multifamily redevelopment project in the city’s history.
The 1,300-unit, $200 million project will be near Globe Life Park at 425 E. Lamar Blvd.
Phase I of Arlington Commons was designed by JHP Architecture/Urban Design. Developer The Nehemiah Company expects the 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.
Floor plans include one- and two-bedroom units ranging from 777 to 1,281 sf.
The redevelopment has received $10.5 million in local economic incentives from the Arlington City Council. Arlington Commons is replacing aging apartment complexes that were originally built in the 1970s.
