So happy for our sister/bro to the west! (I havent determined if Ft. Worth is masculine or feminine yet)

Its time they get their own thread.

 

Jetta/Frost Tower Officially under construction! :D

 

 

http://www.fortworthbusiness.com/news/groundbreaking-skyscraper-to-revitalize-eastern-downtown/article_8c8215f8-786a-11e5-82dc-53ad597f2688.html

 

 

Ground was broken on Wednesday Oct. 21 for downtown Fort Worth’s first commercial skyscraper in more than 20 years.

The 25-story at 640 Taylor St. will revitalize the east side of downtown, according to Michael Bennett of Bennett Benner Partners, designers of the building.

The site, currently a parking lot, is part of a trend to get rid of surface parking lots in downtown areas, he said. The new skyscraper will include a parking garage with spaces for the Fort Worth Club and Morningstar Partners, which owns the former Star-Telegram complex at 400 W. Seventh St., adjacent to the site. The building will have 258,900 gross square feet of office space and 45,800 gross square feet of amenity floors.

In addition, Bennett noted that the building will bring new energy to the east side of downtown, much like that currently seen in Sundance Square.

The 12th floor, he said, will have an outdoor cafe and the 13th floor will have several high-tech meeting facilities for use by Fort Worth companies and residents. That will invite interaction with people beyond the building’s tenants, Bennett said.

Frost Bank will be the anchor and name tenant for the new tower, which is being built by the energy firm Jetta Operating Co. Anthracite Realty Partners LLC, Jetta’s affiliate, announced earlier in October that Frost Bank has signed a lease to occupy more than 73,000 square feet in the building.

Frost will have a lobby-level banking facility and will move its region headquarters and other lines of business into three upper floors.

For Jetta Operating Co., a privately held oil and gas exploration and production firm based in Fort Worth, the building is a public face for a company that has traditionally kept a low profile.

The company, with nearly 250 employees (140 in Fort Worth), will move its corporate headquarters from the Fort Worth Club Tower into the new high-rise, which is estimated to cost more than $100 million. Jetta will occupy 70,000 square feet of space in the building.

It will be the seventh-tallest building in Fort Worth and Bennett said he expects it to become a downtown landmark.

Obviously you've never been there. 

Fort Worth would be in the mix but San Antonio and Austin take it. They have much larger cores than Fort Worth and more cohesive urban cores. Downtown Austin is lively at any point in the day and its vibrancy is in various places across Downtown. I notice with Fort Worth it's vibrancy mostly radiates out of Sundance Square and the Downtown is physically small, you can be in the center of it and look in any direction and see the end of downtown and the end of high density development. You cant do that anywhere close to as easily in San Antonio or Austin. Downtown Fort Worth can compete with them but it is not surrounded by as many high density and highly vibrant neighborhoods like DTSA and DTATX are. DTATX and DTSA feel like neighborhoods more than they feel like business districts TBH, that's a net positive IMO. Austin's skyline will be dominated by residential towers rising over office towers in the future. 

 

I think the I-35/I-35W cities have the best downtowns in Texas, so Austin, San Antonio, and Fort Worth.

A full article on the progress of the TRV (Panther Island) was posted in the S-T. The first development on the island could begin as soon as next year. Trinity river vision moves forward.

The pictures don't have a proper extension for embedding. You could download the pictures, then upload them here as an attachment in your post.

 

Thanks. I went with different pics that I googled. The pics I wanted were off the Star Telegram showed construction and a really cool roundabout.

Downtown Ft. Worth is going to look amazing in a few years. Im jealous of their river situation. Dallas needs to get on the ball and fix its river area.

Good call. I guess I lean toward FW because it's so laid back compared to hipster Austin and touristy San Antonio. Both of which I like visiting but would never consider living in. I enjoy the fact that Fort Worth's downtown is small and walkable. It just has a good vibe. Also much easier getting around in a vehicle then most Texas cities.

Part of the problem is that all of the improvement plans include the notoriously unpopular Trinity River Toll Road.  I doubt any proposal will move forward until the Toll Road is killed.

 

Anyway, this is the Fort Worth thread.  I also think Fort Worth probably has the best downtown in Texas.  All around, the city itself is pretty awesome.  I've seriously considered moving there on more than one occasion.

Current Google Maps show Trinity River flooded. What good does a toll road do if it's flooded? And an urban highway paralleling a river area? I don't want to sound like Slick, but that seems so backward.

Exclusive: Provident Realty readies $1B project on former Pate Ranch tract

Candace Carlisle

February 10, 2016

Dallas-based developer Provident Realty Advisors is prepping a 468-acre tract formerly owned by Fort Worth's Pate family for a $1 billion mixed-use development, which will bring upwards of 1,000 single-family homes to the site along the newly completed Chisholm Trail Parkway.

Along with the single-family homes, Provident Realty plans to develop nearly 200,000 square feet of grocery-anchored retail space and a three-story apartment community with about 325 apartment homes on the tract at the southwest quadrant of Altamesa and Bryant Irvin Road in southwest Fort Worth.

The $1.4 billion Chisholm Trail Parkway brings this part of Fort Worth from a 30-plus minute drive to downtown Fort Worth to an eight-minute commute to the city's core, he added.

Construction is expected to begin on the apartments by the end of the year.

The three-story apartment buildings are expected to have an urban design with parking behind the buildings, which gives Tavolo Park's apartments a similar feel to those seen in Uptown or other mixed-use developments.

Just got back last week on a business trip.  I have never seen DFW air quality so bad!  The sky was brown just they passed Houston for pollution.  You could not see the blue sky. Had to use my inhaler.  I went to Fort Worth, Plano and was very impressed with Lewisville.  Plano is like The Woodlaands but ugly.  I have no idea what is going up there, but never seen the are so bad.

Dallas developer to bring sky-bridge living to Fort Worth's Medical District
Candace Carlisle
June 16, 2016

 

ja5uaxD4x4mpBy_bA5Y2LJ5ktnRbGM8AvN6llZ80

 

Quote

 

Urban apartment development group — Dallas-based Lang Partners LLC — has begun building a new apartment community in Fort Worth's hospital district, which will utilize a sky-bridge to help connect the community.

 

The 327-unit apartment complex, called Oleander Apartments, will be built on two separate city blocks on West Rosedale and Oleander Streets, with a bridge over Seventh Avenue in Fort Worth.

 

Quote

 

The sky-bridges will give would-be residents the ability to have access to the apartments' garage, pool and other apartment community amenities.

 

As part of the development deal, Lang Partners have received approval for $1.2 million in tax increment financing funding from the Medical District, which will be used for public right-of-way and easement improvements, streetscape improvements and utility work.

Construction is slated for completion in summer 2017.

West Vickery apartments get approval for additional floors
Samantha Calimbahin
June 23, 2016

 

576c44ca564e7.image_zpsfvvt9n6n.png

 

Quote

The apartments planned for the corner of West Vickery Boulevard and South Main Street are one step closer to getting taller.

Quote

The Urban Design Commission voted June 23 to approve the addition of two more floors to the project, for a total of 12.

Quote

The plan is to build a 262-unit apartment complex and an adjacent 10-story, 200-room hotel on the T transit parking lot. Both buildings will have ground floor retail space totaling about 70,000 square feet.

Quote

“Getting the design right is really important. We think all of this is coming together in a good way.”

Quote

The original plan was to split residential space between the two buildings. With the height change, all the residential units will be consolidated to one building, while the other building will be used solely as a hotel.

Quote

 

Bennett said another reason to add additional parking is to accommodate the incoming TEX Rail, a 27-mile commuter rail project that will stretch from the site of the West Vickery development to Terminal B at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. 

 

The TEX Rail is expected to be operational by the end of 2018.

Walsh Ranch development begins to take shape west of Fort Worth
Sandra Baker
September 3, 2016

 

Walsh-7724-grading

 

Quote

On Wednesday, Aledo school officials will ceremoniously turn dirt to mark the start of construction of an elementary school on the legendary Walsh Ranch in the far west reaches of Fort Worth.

Quote

 

Nearby, crews have been scraping land, preparing the once-untouched prairie for streets and 580 home lots, just a portion of what’s to come. Developers estimate the land could one day be home to 50,000 people, roughly the current population of Grapevine.

 

About 1,700 acres are included in the first development phase of the 7,267-acre Walsh Ranch, which has been held by the family since the 1930s.

 

Quote

 

Going forward, the development won’t be called Walsh Ranch. Instead, it will be branded simply as the Walsh.

 

Over the past decades, every stitch of land has been thought about, down to the planting of a farm of 16,000 trees to be used within the development. About 700 of the trees are now being planted along Walsh Ranch Parkway north of Interstate 20. The road eventually will bisect the entire ranch on both sides of the highway.

 

Moreover, about 2,300 acres are being set aside for green space. The Walshes partnered with Fort Worth’s Botanical Research Institute of Texas to determine how to reclaim and restore the native prairie. The ranch’s unique hilly topography also will be retained. Curving residential streets will take in the terrain, in some places featuring vistas from 1,000 feet up or 90-foot drops.

 

Quote

 

The ranch is 11.4 square miles and will eventually feature as many as 15,000 homes. The entire Walsh development could take 50 years to complete. It will have at least eight elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school, and 35 miles of hike and bike trails.

 

The first batch of houses, going in north of the interstate and west of Walsh Ranch Parkway, will take about three years to complete, and the entire first phase about 15 years to finish. It will have parks and other amenities. Home prices will start in the low $300,000s and go up into the millions of dollars.

 

The developers have put together a 137-page book of standards and architectural details allowed in the Walsh. It relies heavily on some of Fort Worth’s historic neighborhoods.

 

About 770 acres are designated for commercial development and potentially a corporate campus.

Dallas apartment builder heads to Fort Worth with first Panther Island project
Steve Brown
October 20, 2016

 

1476988483-PantherIslandRender--4.jpg?au

 

Quote

 

Encore Multi-Family LLC will build the first private development in the ambitious Panther Island mixed-use project near downtown Fort Worth.

 

Encore plans to construct a 300-unit apartment community called Riverwalk, which will be located in the development on the Trinity River.

 

The 5-story rental community is planed with waterfront balconies, waterfalls and a top floor lounge with views of downtown.

 

The project at Fourth and North Main streets will be on a network of interconnected canals that run throughout the island and are planned for water kayaks, canoes and stand up paddle boards.

 

"We carefully studied the Riverwalk in San Antonio and worked closely with the Trinity River Vision Authority Design Committee to combine the organic feel beloved in San Antonio with Fort Worth's distinct culture to create a one-of-a-kind living experience," Brad Miller, President of Encore Multi-Family, said in a statement. "We have designed community spaces along the Riverwalk to give our residents a true outdoor living room experience that will promote the active outdoor lifestyle that's central to Panther Island."

 

Quote

 

Construction is scheduled to start next summer with an opening in 2018.

 

Riverwalk is planned as the first apartment community to break ground in the Panther Island District, which is planned for more than 10,000 residences along 12 miles of urban waterfront.

Quote

The Swedish company is proposing a 289,000-square-foot location to be built on 27 acres at the southwestern corner of I-35 and North Tarrant Parkway. The store, which would be situated 10 miles north of downtown Fort Worth, is expected to employ 500 workers during construction and 250 to staff the store once it opens.

Quote

 

According to plans, the location would feature 10,000 items, 50 room settings, three model home interiors, a supervised children’s play area and a 325-seat restaurant serving favorites like Swedish meatballs.

 

And it would cut down on carbon emissions though measures like recycling waste material and light bulbs; incorporating energy-efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning and lighting systems; using recycled construction materials; building warehouse skylights and water-efficient bathrooms; and eliminating plastic bags at check outs. 

 

If approved, construction would begin in spring 2018 and open in summer 2019.

The 132-room boutique hotel will help serve overflow from the nearby Deloitte University campus, as well as serve other corporate clientele, such as Fidelity and soon-to-be Charles Schwab regional campus, which is expected to hold 5,000 employees upon completion.

Quote

The hotel developer, Kriya Hotels, had initially planned on bringing a Hyatt Place hotel to the Trophy Club Town Center project, but that has changed with Marriott International's acquisition of the Starwood-owned Aloft Hotels flag and the growing corporate demand in this part of the region.

Quote

 

Construction on the site — the grading of the dirt — will begin by the end of the month, with hotel-specific construction kicking off by this summer after permits and plans are finalized by the town council in March.

 

The grading also will serve other parts of the mixed-use development, which include 60,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space serving the Town Center amenity park.

trinity-complex.jpg

 

Airline giant American Airlines Group Inc. (Nasdaq: AAL) has brought in a development team to begin construction on a new 1.8 million-square-foot headquarters on its nearly 300-acre corporate campus in Fort Worth.


Skipworth, who has worked at American Airlines for nearly 21 years, said the Fort Worth-based airline will have enough room on its campus to house up to 11,000 employees upon completion of the five-building, 1.8 million-square-foot addition.


Upon completion of the project, American Airlines plans to relocate 7,300 employees from four locations throughout North Texas to the campus.


American Airlines brought in Fort Worth-based Crescent Real Estate Holdings LLC, who is working with legendary architect Cesar Pelli through his firm, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects.


“We think they will have a very innovative design,” Goff said. “We are not going to win the quantity contest, but we do want to win the quality contest.”


The campus expansion also includes a fitness and wellness center that will be available to all of American Airlines employees. Skipworth said he expects construction could be completed on the center at the same time as the five office buildings.



Construction on the new campus is slated for completion by summer 2019. American Airlines plans to achieve LEED Gold certification with the campus.
