Homes in Arlington

Owning a home in The American Dream City can be a reality.

The Development Corporation of Tarrant County (DCTC) has partnered with the City of Arlington to increase homeownership by constructing quality, affordable single-family workforce homes. Since 2011, 10 such homes have been constructed through the partnership.

As part of National Community Development Week, DCTC will host an open house from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Thursday, April 20 to showcase three of its newly built houses in Arlington.

All three of the houses are within walking distance of each other. The following locations will be showcased:

  • 1100 and 1102 Sanford Street
  • 401 Orange Street

Over the past five years, DCTC has worked to create community development and neighborhood revitalization efforts in Arlington by constructing houses that are sustainable and energy efficient to lessen the housing cost burden for current and future Arlington residents.

During a recent City Council meeting, Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams declared the month of April as Community Development and Fair Housing Month. The development of new housing units aligns with the City Council's priority to Champion Great Neighborhoods and increase homeownership for low-income families.

The housing units are a collaborative effort between the City of Arlington HOME Investment Partnerships Program, Development Corporation of Tarrant County (DCTC), Wells Fargo, History Maker Homes, BBVA Compass, BB&T Bank, and Liberty Bank.
