What’s Up in Fort Worth’s Cultural District?
More residential density, more sidewalks, and a nighttime presence to make the area feel safer--a few of the components needed to make the Cultural District (the area from White Settlement Road to I-30 and the Trinity River to the historic homes around Montgomery) a walkable urban paradise. Andrew Blake--The Cultural District Alliance chairman and Presidio Interests founder--outlined the CDA goals at the Fort Worth CREW luncheon yesterday. He's flanked by KW Commercial’s Mica Puryear and AUI Contractors’ Ashley Carter.
Aside from the museums, he says there’s 648k SF of existing office space, with another 226k SF planned or proposed in the district. In the works: the Left Bank mixed-use, Museum Place office and hotel, a Greystar multifamily project, a new Will Rogers building (we've reached out to it for a witty quote--but it's a building and it can't return phone calls), some townhomes, and more nightlife and office. Here’s TIG’s Brenda Kindt, Nanci Johnson Plump, Downtown Arlington Management Corp’s Tony Rutigliano, and Kroh & Associates’ Karen Kroh.
