The newly opened stretch of trail on the East Bank of the Trinity from I-30 to Lancaster has really made me think about how underutilized the area West of Forest Park and I-30 is. The area has two huge selling points, an incredibly accessible location equidistant from Downtown, West 7th, Near Southside, and TCU, and nearly a mile of river frontage overlooking Trinity Park. 



The area fall under a section of Panther Island's Periphery zoning category, 


Zone 6– Parkview Drive Development Standards for the Parkview Drive Zone • There shall be a continuous 11’ wide public pathway on the waterfront walkway when development occurs. • Height and density are anticipated in this area with structured parking for mixed use areas, heights shall be up to 120 feet adjacent to the River. • Existing and future restaurants adjacent to the River shall modify their site to include outdoor dining and orientation to the River / Botanic Garden/ Trinity Park, rather than having “back door” parking and service in these areas.

I'm sure that I have seen this Zone 6 before, but it is good to know that the City had made mistakes in the past with what was built there over the years.  It's good to know that the density will increase and the restaurants will take advantage of the river.

I have felt for 30 years this area has been underutilized.  I'm not sure if it is the price per acreage or that the water treatment plane is here as to why no developer has jumped at this location.  To me this area has the most potential of any piece of land in Fort Worth
