At the Annual Luncheon for Downtown Fort Worth, Inc., it was revealed today that the site of the old Frank Kent Cadillac at Main and Lancaster is now scheduled to have a new loft apartment building constructed on that site.  I'm posting an article by Scott Nishimura with the Business Press. This article also mentions two other downtown projects.  However, they will have separate threads, or it will be linked in the appropriate existing thread.

I'm amazed that the land has stayed in the Frank Kent/Churchill family for 30+ years after the dealership closed. More good news for Lancaster. Things look to be headed in the right direction on that end of downtown.

This is one of the more oddly shaped and barrier challenged site anywhere downtown.  It will be an interesting task fitting apartments of this magnitude there. For instance, what about fire and EMS? It might have been a better site for a commercial mid-rise.  Anyway Good luck.

This is great news for that end of downtown.  And, with all these proposed projects, including the hint of one on the old CNB site, downtown is going to be a busy construction area in the coming years.

It is an odd, constricted site. I would assume that apartment building is L-shaped with a parking structure in the rear that gives plenty of access.

The lofts just got their TIF funds approved.

 

200-units with the first two floors having 320 parking spaces, and the top three being apartments. The project will also have a fitness center, business center and other common areas.

Every one of these smaller projects that happen will bring it closer to reality.

It's been a while since the announcement. I haven't read or heard anything about construction starting, but did see utility flags all over the site today.

Busy month for the DDRB & apartment projects...

 

 

 

  • The DDRB also approved plans to build the Kent Lofts at 130 East Lancaster Ave. Plans for the development include four stories with 205 apartment units and two stories of parking. The DDRB requested that the developer work with city staff to determine the location and size of the building's signage, as well as redesign the corner of the building facing Lancaster Avenue and Main Street to make the corner more unique.

The DFWI annual newsletter mentions that this stalled out due to utility conflicts, but should start May or June.

Any word on this project? I had heard at one time they asked for another extension to close the loan for the 3rd or 4th time and the Kent family said no. Cool little spot to do something!

Yes it is cool little spot;  but for the plans that have been presented, it is a disappointment. 

 

If ever a location called for a 15 floors above garage base, this is it.

Wouldn’t the proposed condo tower for Henderson look awesome at this location
