The owner of City Place in downtown Fort Worth has obtained building permits to redevelop the complex's south tower at Third and Throckmorton streets into a multitenant office building.Jon Ruff, senior vice president at Spire Realty Group in Dallas, said converting the long-vacant building into offices was always the company's intent. Spire entertained a couple of inquiries from hoteliers along the way, but they never materialized.Ruff said Spire hasn't pre-leased any of the space in the 19-story building, the former RadioShack headquarters, and executives are still deciding whether they'll complete some speculative space or wait to work on the floors until they are leased. They hope to decide in October, which is why they've applied for permits, he said.In the meantime, energy-efficient windows will be installed and the building painted to match its sister tower, Two City Place, he said. Renovation costs have been placed at $21 million, according to one filing.Construction on a parking garage is winding down. The top slab of the eight-story structure was poured a few weeks ago. The garage should be ready in December, Ruff said.Ruff said Spire is negotiating with two retailers for some of the 30,000 square feet of ground-floor space in that building.Spire bought City Place in February 2011 and by December had demolished the former outlet mall between the towers to make room for the garage. Two City Place was renovated more than four years ago by the previous owner and is 82 percent leased.Bolt & Tool building soldFort Worth Bolt & Tool has sold its last building near the West Seventh Street corridor that is used for its FWB Rental.Tailwind Real Estate Equities in Fort Worth bought the 12,900-square-foot building at 920 Foch St. and plans to redevelop the property for office or retail use.The building will be taken down to a shell and reduced to about 8,700 square feet to make room for about 35 parking spaces, said J.
