I actually drove down Main Street over the New Year's Weekend.

I wouldn't call it open yet, more like "put together enough that you can drive a few parts here and there"

I bet they're about 6-8 months away from a ribbon cutting.

I'm sorry that I implied that it was "open" by my post.  The street is not finished. It is just as Austin had said, in that it is paved and constructed enough that you can drive a few parts.  However, when I drove down it the other day, I headed southbound from Vickery to Tucker or Annie Streets.

I don't know if they're leaving it open or blocking it off at times, but large parts of it are open and passable.  There are connections with cross streets to be finished as well as the landscaping.

A 6 story medical office is planned at 1,111 Pennsylvania, adjacent to the Oxshear House. There is an existing MCM building there, which will likely be torn down.

Kelly Capital Partners plans a 14 unit town home complex along Terrell between St. Louis and May streets. A good use for the area, where several much older houses still remain in a small cluster.

It kinda looks like the new apartment building proposal for Hemphill that was blown away by a tornado and some of it's remnants landed here. I think it should suit the area well although the architectural style is a big juxtaposition to the houses already there

Per Ann Zadeh at our neighborhood meeting on 3/23/17:

  • The original contract was terminated mid-march.
  • On March 24, the city attorney and bond company met at the site to estimate the remaining construction.  
  • Parks and Community Services is ready to move ahead with programs as soon as construction is complete.  The director of Victory Forest Center was also in attendance.

A 4 story cancer treatment center with med offices and 5 level garage is planned at 500 S. Henderson, planned to start Feb next year and be completed summer 2018. Perkins + Will is the architect. 

 

Start date is a little off but ST ran an article on this today. http://www.star-tele...e144042114.html

That will be a nice building for that area. It will help tidy up the area and maybe this, along with the other proposed building near here, could help be a catalyst for the Henderson/Pennsylvania intersection.

Twilite Lounge, a music venue & bar in Deep Ellum, is opening a second location in Fort Worth's near southside.

 

This was originally reported about a year ago, but I drove by the other day so I can confirm that work is now proceeding at the FW location.  It's at Lipscomb & Daggett - two blocks south of Vickery and a block west of Hemphill.  

 

For those of you that are P1's, Danny Balis is a co-owner of this establishment.

Anyone know what is going in on the NW corner of Windsor and 8th Ave, just west of the FWRR tracks? Site has been cleared and graded.

With the explosion of new redevelopment now going on and planned, the Near South is really undergoing a grass root non-corporatized transformation.  It will be just the neighborhood that young people will migrate towards.  Talk of the City having an image problem is and will be proven wrong.

I hop you're right. I just don't know if the high rents in the area and lack of public amenities at this time can make this happen as quickly as we would like it to. I believe it may take quite a bit more time than we might think. It is a great area with really good bones and selling points to make it a truly genuine and hip part of Fort Worth.

It still feels far from finished if I must be honest and realistic.

Oooph. That is a total loss. 

I hate that the first thing I wondered about was arson. The preliminary report says accident is suspected.

Yeah, that was a shocker. I have friends who frequently went that I heard from first.

Ray Williams' family has owned the land for about 50 years. He leased the building to the Rainbow Lounge. Right now, he has no plans to rebuild, especially with rising property values in the area just south of downtown.

"I know property values in this area have just skyrocketed in the last three years,” he said. “So it may be more advantageous just to scrape and sell the land."

Williams says he is self-insured and is not inclined to rebuild. For someone else to buy the property and rebuild is not impossible, but will be expensive.

So does that mean it will replace the Twilite Lounge that had announced for that building?  Or will there be two clubs there?
