: Remove Demolition Delay Overlay and add Historic and Cultural Overlay
This property is a turn-of-the-century vernacular commercial building, constructed circa 1895. The structure was enlarged around 1907. The original structure, and 1907 alterations, was designed by prominent Fort Worth architect, L. B. Weinman. It is a two story brick structure with ornamental brick string course between the first and second floor and a corbelled cornice. The structure was constructed for the Eagle Steam Bread Bakery, founded by William J. Doherty. It was one of the largest bakeries in Texas and was later renamed the Doherty Baking Company. Doherty was a prominent Fort Worth civic leader and poet. He was also the president of the Palace of Sweets Confectionary. 665 South Main is one of the oldest structures in the area, having survived the great fire of 1909 that decimated so many other buildings at that time. The building has sat vacant for several years and some has some condition issues. The structural walls of load bearing masonry are deteriorating and failing on the east and north facades. These facades require stabilization or possibly reconstruction. It is the applicant’s intention to restore the historic structure and construct a rear addition to accommodate new uses for the building. The structure may be eligible for the National Register.
Not sure what any future uses it may hold, but it's in a great area and I'm sure it will live on.
