You know, I kind of side with the objections on that one. You can't have parking that far away. Why not do two smaller projects, each with adequate on-site parking? Or a residential building over a parking garage?
New research and development center will support electric vehicle production.
The new facility will be located at the 46 Ranch Logistics Park which is on the east side of Campus at Oak Grove just south of I-20.
A China-based automotive parts supplier is locating a new operation in South Fort Worth that will employ 120 workers.
Junchuang North America Inc. is a subsidiary of Suzhou Junchuang Auto Technologies, a Chinese auto parts manufacturer.
The company provides electric vehicle parts to auto manufacturers including Jaguar, Land Rover, Ford and Mazda.
The parts firm is leasing a 55,000-square-foot industrial space.

I remember reading in the article that it is an 8 story building, but I count 10 stories from the bottom rendering and actually 11 if you count the sliver of a floor on the top left side (NE) of the building.
The journalist fact checking the Mayor’s crime comments are appropriate. I don’t want Fort Worth to say ‘come here because world class cities haven’t gotten worse’, I want to attract people for what we build, how we build, and the quality of life across many variables.
Yeah, that was cringeworthy when Parker compared Ft Worth to San Fran... even if it was true and it wasn't even true.
I bike this route down Lipscomb often. There are others houses old and new built as close to these tracks. Not that it’s makes it ok, but it’s not a first.
Before I moved to South Hills I lived in the McCart/Sycamore School road area and would ride toward the Near Southside/downtown and Lipscombe was one of my frequent routes. Pretty quiet route for riding.

I think of that area could be about to enter a period of post-industrial gentrification, kind of like the W7th area was 20 years ago, or the area around Cullen Street (north of White Settlement/east of University) and District 97 which are just hitting their stride. What spurs the initial development are:
Affordable land values/rent rates for what is currently a purely industrial area.
Proximity to residential populations that can frequent the new entertainment-oriented businesses.
By entertainment oriented I mean restaurants, bars, breweries, distilleries, activities (like ax throwing/bowling). I could see this blowing up quite rapidly. I understand the South Division FW Police HQ will be moving down to Risinger Road which will open up more space for redevelopment. This area has a lot of industrial and warehouse space. It is right off the main rail line that runs along Granbury Road. I think proximity to freeways is more important to industrial uses these days and rail is not as important as it used to be, so the area is losing ground with respect to industrial use. The northern tip of that area, in the wedge between Granbury, McCart and Pafford is still highly industrial with Priefert Steel, Thornton Steel and Martin Sprocket, but I could see the areas south of Pafford, as well as that bounded by Pafford/Merida/Dickson/McCart transitioning from industrial to hospitality/entertainment-oriented startups.
It's about time too, since I live about a mile south of there.
