North Arlington along Lamar and Van Buren is currently having a lot of work done. There are several apartments along that strip that are fenced off and set to be demolished. That area will become Arlington Commons which is a group of upscale apartments. The elementary school right across from many of the apartments will be moved and replaced with an academy. Most of the residences in that area believe the new apartments will be better for the whole community. There are some who will miss the people who use to live there. Construction has begun already and is expected to continue until the middle of next year.
