The Downtown Arlington Management Corporation is a private, non-profit community development organization whose purpose is to forge alliances between property owners, business interests, residents and the City of Arlington to improve and enhance the economic vitality and overall environment of Downtown Arlington.
Nestled between two of the fastest growing business centers in the country, Arlington is the geographical heart of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Home to the Rangers, the Cowboys, Six Flags, Hurricane Harbor and the University of Texas at Arlington, this city is an essential piece to the success of the DFW Metroplex. The centerpiece of this growth, and the focus for future plans, is a small area between Division and Abram streets known as Downtown Arlington.
A New Site For A New Downtown Arlington
It is difficult to do anything in our culture without a web presence. In response to this, the Downtown Arlington Management Corp. has worked with Thrive to develop an informative website (http://downtownarlington.org) to provide citizens and visitors with the most up-to-date information in order to maximize their experience in this rapidly expanding city.
Tony Rutigliano, of the Downtown Arlington Management Corp, said “We are so excited to launch the new website. It really captures and highlights the wonderful amenities and events in downtown. Thrive did a fabulous job taking our ideas and concepts, and turning them into reality. Our old site primarily focused on the organization, but the new site really showcases Downtown Arlington as a unique destination for those seeking music, food, culture or shopping.”
Great Features for Arlington Residents and Visitors
The new site is visually pleasing, while allowing the visitor increased efficiency in navigating Arlingtons attractions. There is an easy-to-use directory that allows visitors to the site to find any restaurant, entertainment venue, or any other business relevant to their need of the moment.
The event calendar keeps the visitor informed on upcoming events at the various venues around town, including the new, and rather popular, Levitt Pavilion. Users can opt for email updates to keep them abreast of all the information pertinent to their needs, and solid mobile optimization allows the savviest of users to check in on whatever plans they may have in this bustling suburban city. This is all put together in the frame of a pleasant and fun design that meshes perfectly with the character of Arlington.
While the site has been launched and already, there are plans for phase two of the project to add even more great features. The future holds a new interactive map to provide users with a simple (and to be honest, fun) way of planning their time in the Downtown Arlington area. Familiar features from common interactive maps, with a little Arlington flare, will allow the visitor to find exactly where they’re going.
