Developers are planning to build a $39.5 million hotel project in south Arlington.
Q Hotels said it will construct the SpringHill Suites and TownePlace Suites hotel in a single building on Interstate 20 near the Parks at Arlington Mall.
Construction on the two Marriott hotels will start at the end of this year.

The university broke ground Oct. 27 on the $125 million Science and Engineering Innovation and Research building, a 220,000 square-foot facility that will bring together several divergent research departments that will be separated only by glass walls.
"This is going to be one way of focusing what we do in bringing together people in the sciences -- biology, bioengineering, computer science, the college of nursing and kinesiology," said Duane Dimos, UTA's vice president for research. "It's really a way to bring all of that research under one roof."
The Texas Rangers hope to have an architectural firm hired by the end of the year to design its $1 billion, retractable-roof stadium that Arlington voters approved Nov. 8.
Team representatives and city officials unveiled the timeline during a City Council work session on Tuesday afternoon, according to NBC-5.
The timeline calls for interviews of structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing consultants to begin by the end of the year, and also by that time the city should start the selection process of its financial team to facilitate project financing.

A $35 million expansion at GM Financial’s south Arlington campus will accommodate 1,300 employees being added ... grow its employment base to over 4,000 workers... GM Financial also has 700 employees at its headquarters in downtown Fort Worth ... Today, GM Financial finances one of every three vehicles GM sells, and the company’s goal is to finance half of all autos GM sells in the next few years ... Detroit-based GM has roughly 8,000 employees in Arlington, making it the city’s largest private-sector employer.

I have been to this community, and while Viridian is a beautiful community it is literally surrounded by undesirables. Across the street is a major landfill with big trucks zooming in and out every minute, just north of the community the first thing you run into is a strip club and major industrial buildings. If you go South you're obviously in North Arlington which hasn't aged well. Lots of run down strip shopping centers and aging apartments. IMO there's very little to be desired about this area.

Rawlings and Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price have invited Toronto Mayor John Tory, Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre, Mexico City Mayor Miguel Ángel Mancera and Monterrey, Mexico, Mayor Adrian De la Garza Santos to the summit. The cities and regions those mayors represent are North Texas' largest international trade partners.
The total value of Arlington’s 2016 deals submitted to the magazine was $1.55 billion. Plano Economic Development ranked No. 2 for having $675.42 million in deals.
The city's submission included seven projects: the new Texas Rangers ballpark, Texas Live!, Summit Racing, Champions Park, Arlington Chamber of Commerce Building E, Liv+ Arlington apartments and Southwest Restaurant.
Beginning Aug. 3, getting to Globe Life Park and finding parking might take a little more time.
As the Rangers begin utility work on their new retractable-roof stadium, portions of Nolan Ryan Expressway as well as the remainder of Parking Lot A and a section of Parking Lot B will be closed to facilitate that work.
More closures will happen in September when ballpark excavation work is expected to begin, said John Blake, the Rangers' executive vice president of communications.

Side note... I don't know what the attendance was for yesterday evening's game, but that place was a ghost town. It was quite depressing to see on TV... even more so when you consider that it was an evening game and didn't have work or school to compete with.
My work is going to the game today... Hopefully it's not as bad. Best of luck to the new stadium.
Exactly what will happen to Globe Life Park after the Rangers move to their new stadium in April 2020 is becoming a little more clear. The old ball park will be home to a new football team -- an unnamed Dallas-area XFL franchise...
...Those cities are Dallas (Arlington), Houston, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Seattle, Tampa Bay and Washington D.C...
...The XFL's initial eight teams will have 45 players on each roster playing a 10-game schedule. The postseason will consist of two semifinal playoff games and a championship game.
That's a short season of play for Globe Life Park but Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams said Wednesday, “Today’s XFL announcement is one of many ways the City plans to deliver on its promise to reinvent Globe Life Park. The XFL will be the first of many announcements about the repurposing of our iconic venue that will have a new, long life in Arlington after Globe Life Field opens in 2020.”
