We live in Hillside, directly across from the Airporter (is that what the transport place is called?). It is now shut down, and I'm wondering if anyone has insight as to what this space will become? It is directly next to (below) Weatherford, located on E 1st St. 

This may be a topic for commercial too.

Ruthann, welcome to the Forum.  You live in a cool neighborhood.  

 

As for the Airporter, I can't recall but not much has been said about it.  I think it might have some potential to become a terminal for the luxury express buses that connect to Houston and Austin, the ones with stewardesses and first class meals.

 

Keep Fort Worth folksy. :)

Thanks! I figured it is probably pretty good real estate and wondered if they would build more homes like ours there, especially since Hillside is being sold.  

 

Ps: we really like living here!

Hi Ruth Ann........Apartments are going to built there and will become part of the Hillside Community but they won't look like Hillside. :smwink:

Is this deja Vu?... I have seen this design somewhere around the city, but I can't remember where.

All jokes aside. I am glad to see an empty lot bite the dust.

On Google Maps, it looks like walking to the heart of downtown may be a little inconvenient from this location.

Hopefully that will be remedied

That's great.  This lot does sort of sit out on the fringes.  I'm getting a blank on the images of the plans on that link in both IE and Chrome.

I did as well. I thought it was because I am on my ipad with no wifi connection.

I am to. The article is from 2015, so I'm guessing the links just went bad.

Austin, do you know if the plan was going to include a path from first over or under the tracks?... or was it a plan to better connect 1st St. to 3rd St.?
