I didn't see a topic for this building.  I think it houses City of Fort Worth workers now and just wanted to mention that they did a full replacement of all exterior windows within the last month or so.  The windows look nice but seem a little strange to me by  how shiny they are when the sun hits them.

The specific location is the southwest corner of Monroe & 10th.  The actual address is 900 Monroe St.  It is one of those buildings that was built initially at 2 stories, and was designed for four total.  Later on, the upper two floors were added on top.

In looking at the old aerial photographs of downtown, the blank walled space between the two buildings used to be open.  At some point, that area became an addition to either one of the buildings.  I always thought it was a part of the Professional Building (formerly Miller's Mutual), but it could have easily been an addition to Lone Star Gas.  I might should try to look at the old photographs more closely.

So these are, if true, two buildings that the City owns or leases for staffing that I am suggesting could be vacated by shifting the staff to renovated space in the T&P Warehouse if and when the warehouse is acquired through in any means.  Vacated, these building could be sold to private developers to offset the costs of acquiring and renovating the City's cost to upgrade its portion of the T&P Warehouse.  Another tenant in the warehouse could be TAD, FWISD, etc.
