M2G Ventures, Fort Capital, John Zimmerman Real Estate and Guide architecture are working together on a new multiuse development which is roughly behind Montgomery Plaza's Target store. The area has already developed some, including the remodel of the building which contains the M&O grill. 

 

Along Carroll will be 16 units of 3 story luxury townhomes. 

 

 

(No idea why they show the Charlotte Skyline... or why the balcony appears to be 400 feet tall)

 

 

Behind the townhomes, the existing warehouse on Weisenburger will be converted to commercial use, including offices and retail. 

 

Current state,

Foch was pretty ugly back before La Familia moved over from their spot on 7th.

You know an area is getting trendy when electric tiki torches are part of the design! I hope M & M Manufacturing stays...I like a little welding shop over there too! Maybe they can serve wine and show people how to weld and rivet so they fit in the "new" hood!

This is actually a really interesting concept. Reminds me of something like the Glassblowing place on Magnolia. I'd love to take a class on how to weld, either for art or for more practical purposes. Perhaps that would be an interesting topic of it's own.

I would love to learn the different welds on different materials too! I live 2 blocks away from Sinaca Studios and love watching them making glass objects!

...and pedestrian space in front of the building instead of a parking lot.

Why is this area called The Foundry ?

 

I never heard the name before.

Not until the strip center that contains M&O Grill placed a The Foundry sign on top of its roof

It's certainly no "Middle Upper Left Town" or "Right of Center Island", but it's unique and a little catchy.

I drove by the area and I'm really starting to like the direction the FD is heading. Some of the colors they have chosen are suspect, but I love the new mural and also the clearing of a lot next to the FW Food Park. I think this area could be dubbed the warehouse district and include several murals and publuc art that I have been hoping for. It will definitely have a unique feel IMO.

More background on M2G and The Foundry District, including the source of the name. I researched the property back into the 1950s and never found evidence of a foundry. I see now why I didn't.

Another residential building planned as well, 2nd phase of Fort 209. The two buildings will combine for 72 units.
