Nehemiah Co. has completed the second phase of its more than decade-long redevelopment project in Arlington, Texas. The developer has finished construction of The Truman, its 358-unit community that’s part of its Arlington Commons project.
Nehemiah Co. tapped KWA Construction as the general contractor for the project’s second phase, which started construction back in September 2019. The project team also included JHP Architecture, who designed the community, and WORKSHOP | studio, who designed the interiors. Greystone also provided financing for The Truman, which will be managed by the developer’s in-house management group, Nehemiah Management Group.
Now open for leasing, The Truman offers studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units that range from 598 to 1,594 square feet. The units were built with 10-foot ceilings, soaking tubs, mudroom areas, LED lighting, USB charging outlets, electronic locks and key fob entry with some units offering 11- to 12-foot ceilings. The four-story community also includes a coworking space, wellness room, pool, fitness center, gaming room, fire pit, dog park, community room, private event space, rideshare lounge, electric vehicle charging stations and grilling stations. The Truman was also built with a four-level covered parking garage, roof deck parking and ground floor retail that is occupied by Nehemiah Coffee Co., which is slated to open in spring 2022.
FIVE PHASES LASTING UNTIL 2030
The completion of The Truman marks off the second phase of Arlington Commons for Nehemiah Co. The major redevelopment project initially kicked off with its first phase that focused on The Roosevelt, a 353-unit community that was built in 2016.
Brian Webster, president of KWA Construction, said in prepared remarks that Arlington Commons was an example of a community revival project that is both financially profitable and transformative.
In total, Arlington Commons will span five phases with approximately 1,300 units planned. Expected to be one of the largest master planned redevelopments in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, the multiphase project is scheduled for completion in 2030.
