    GM, Arlington Celebrate Groundbreaking of Automotive Logistics Center

    General Motors and the City of Arlington celebrated the groundbreaking of the future Arlington Automotive Logistics Center, a $250 million redevelopment project that will bring hundreds of new, good-paying jobs to the city.

    NorthPoint Development plans to construct two warehouses with a combined 1.2 million square feet of industrial space for General Motors Assembly Plant suppliers on the former Six Flags Mall site at Division Street and State Highway 360. The project is designed to increase efficiency and productivity of GM’s Arlington Assembly Plant by moving its part suppliers closer and reducing transportation costs.

    The supplier park, set to open next year, is estimated to support up to 1,800 employees at project build-out. Of those, an estimated 850 jobs will be new in Arlington.

    In addition to transforming a shopping center that was no longer economically viable, the supplier hub is expected to generate $151 million in taxable sales and purchases in the city during the next decade.

    The City of Arlington continues its efforts to create jobs, attract more visitors, and maintain a desirable environment for businesses. Strategic economic development allows Arlington to build its commercial tax base while keeping the tax rate low so the city can continue to provide the high-quality services – such as police, fire, parks, and libraries – that our residents expect.
