Ask Arlington: Downtown Development on the Rise in The American Dream City

“Ask Arlington” is a show dedicated to answering the questions you have about what’s happening in our city.

Each week, on the City’s social media pages, we’ll let you know what the topic of the “Ask Arlington” episode will be. All you have to do is post your question and we’ll do our best to get it answered during our show.

This week’s show features Tony Rutigliano, President & CEO of Downtown Arlington Management Corporation, to answer your questions about economic development in Downtown.

With projects like Urban Union, the construction of the new Downtown Library and 101 Center, there’s plenty for residents and visitors to be excited about in The American Dream City.

In addition to ongoing development, Downtown mainstays like Levitt Pavilion Arlington, Arlington Museum of Art, Theatre Arlington, Arlington Music Hall and many others continue to increase tourism with new shows, exhibits and entertainment.

The arts and culture in Downtown has also caught the attention of many around the state. In 2016, the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) approved the designation of Downtown Arlington as one of only seven new cultural districts in the state. These districts can become focal points for generating business, attracting tourists, stimulating cultural development and fostering civic pride.
