A new apartment tower is coming to downtown Fort Worth.
Transwestern Development Company is developing an 18-story apartment tower at 1000 W. Weatherford St., near the Pier 1 Imports corporate headquarters. The project will have a mid-rise building that spans over a block and a half, with a 12-story tower on top of it.
The mid-rise building will include a parking garage and 233 apartments that are approximately 860 square feet. The tower will have 77 higher-end 1,300-square-foot apartments with a private pool and an amenities area.
“The mid-rise element will be very nice units, probably for a younger demographic, and the tower will be for somebody who … wants more space,” said Mark Culwell, the managing director of multi-family development for Transwestern.
Since the building spans close to a block and a half of land on West Weatherford Street, there will be a skywalk constructed over Lexington Street. Lexington will also be an entrance to the parking garage.
The plans have been approved by both the Downtown Design Review Board and Downtown Fort Worth Inc., and construction will start near the end of the year.
From there, the building will tentatively be finished in 2021, though the timeline has not been formalized.
The building will be near The Worth, a $100 million 24-story condominium tower planed for North Henderson Street. It will feature 115 homes.
