Topics I've Started

Economic Development Plan

Yesterday, 01:42 PM

The full PDF is massive, almost 500 pages. I've only just begun looking through it and figured the forum would have many thoughts on what is discussed. Several hot topics, like FW's image, regionalism with Dallas, and preffered growth plans are outlined.


Western Center Tower III

08 December 2017 - 07:06 PM

According to the zoning commission packet, a third tower will be joining the other two towers located off I30 on the West side of town. It will sit on the currently empty lot along Guilford Rd. The tower will be 11 floors and 166 feet tall. A 5 detached story garage will be included. The top floor will contain a residence.

Gov owned land downtown

A frequent topic on here is trying to shrink the government influence in downtown in order to get more private investment and grow the tax base. 

Here is a map to help visualize some of what governments control, sorted by level. Churches are also included since they are predominant landowners and don't pay property taxes.  Let me know if you notice any incorrect or missing areas.

I did not include TRWD ownership as there is a lot of it, but basically, anything along the river is them. Streets are not included either. 





Elkhorn Union

The old semi trailer parking at NE corner of S. Main & Vickery has been cleared and has a sign up. Not sure what it will be though.... 



Large plot off University & Jacksboro Hwy

21 November 2017 - 04:49 PM

This plot is only for sale now, nothing that I know of is planned. However, I think it is notable due to its size, over 14 acres. Though not highlighted, the Rockwood Go-Karts and Mini golf are also for sale by the same realtor. 



Great location with very close proximity to Downtown, W7th, Stockyards, & Panther Island, direct access to the Trinity & Rockwood park. It's marketed as "Redevelopment Opportunity with Hotel, Restaurant or Retail Pad-Site Potential on the Edge of the Trinity River Vision Project."

Nearly the entire site sits in a floodzone, however. Not sure how the TRV might affect that.
