Why not Downtown Arlington, TX?

Anchored by research powerhouse University of Texas at Arlington, Downtown Arlington is fast becoming a hot spot for budding start-ups. Within its 400-acre radius, Downtown is home to the Start-up Lounge at UTA, maker spaces in the new Downtown Library, and three coworking enterprises.
