Arlington Town Center

Recommended Posts

Tom Hicks, the owner of the Texas Rangers, is planning to develop a large mixed-use town center on 180 acres he owns between Ameriquest Field and the future Cowboys Stadium.

At a luncheon Thursday at the Arlington City Club, Mayor Robert Cluck told real estate brokers and developers that the first phase of the mixed-use project would include a heavy concentration of upscale retail tenants at street level and residential lofts above the shops.

The development is still in the planning stages and construction on the first phase may not begin until 2007 or 2008.

Plans for the Arlington Town Center are nearing the final stages. The project will develope 150 acres around Ameriquest Field, the home of the Texas Rangers. The first phase of the project will take place on the west and south sides of the stadium with groundbreaking taking place early next year.

A set of design specifications for this project, which is now called Glorypark, is set to be turned into the Arlington Planning and Zoning Commission on Wednesday. There will be no drive-thru or sexually oriented business allowed in Glorypark, other guidelines include:

Sidewalks must be at least 11 feet wide along two- or three-lane streets and 12 feet on four-lane streets.

Surface parking lots with more than 100 spaces would have one additional tree for every 15 spaces.

Public activity spaces need at least two amenities (bench, fountain, planter, gazebo, etc.) every 1,000 feet.

Outdoor trash storage areas visible from the street must be screened by a solid masonry wall.
