This plot is only for sale now, nothing that I know of is planned. However, I think it is notable due to its size, over 14 acres. Though not highlighted, the Rockwood Go-Karts and Mini golf are also for sale by the same realtor.

Great location with very close proximity to Downtown, W7th, Stockyards, & Panther Island, direct access to the Trinity & Rockwood park. It's marketed as "Redevelopment Opportunity with Hotel, Restaurant or Retail Pad-Site Potential on the Edge of the Trinity River Vision Project."

Nearly the entire site sits in a floodzone, however. Not sure how the TRV might affect that.

One of those plots near that intersection was long rumored to end up as a Wal Mart.

There is a new one closer to 183.

I knew it had moved further out on Jacksboro Hwy. That is some prime real estate. It has great access to Rockwood Park.

I will say this:

I vote that land directly south of it be used for Coyote Drive-In space if (and when) someone comes along and decides to develop that side of Panther Island as mixed-use buildings.

Very strange. I had been discussing this area with my partner for quite some time and saying that it could be a good area to develop. I was thinking that a smal recreational lake could be made in the plot of land SE of the tree line on the large swath of green. It could be a catchment for rising waters during floods. I think apartments could be built where the gas station is because that is higher and some restaurants and/or retail could go along Jacksboro highway along Henderson east of the intersection at Univ/NS Drive towards downtown.

The areas proximity to DT, W7th, Cul District, Panther Isl, the Stockyards & just downriver from the River District make it a great potential site for redevelopment.

Wow, if someone could consolidate all that property in the triangle bounded by Jacksboro Highway, University Dr. and the West Fork there would be some serious potential for large scale development; either a big project like a corporate campus or a real urban neighborhood. Of course it could also be Big-Box anchored limited-life-span retail strip centers and apartments or a gated community... I don't know if property values in the inner city have reached the point where substantial urbanism is realistically being considered by the developers active in this region.

  With all the retail/hotel development underway or planned, it would be my preference that this site become an employment center such as the suggestion of a corporate campus.
