If you look closely at the master plan of ClearFork, future phases show several buildings which appear to be 8-9 floors in height. This is quite a dense development and is shaping up to be rather walkable.

Before the development, this was just a ranch. Here's an aerial animation I made using Google Earth.

DFW is getting its third IKEA:

IKEA submits plans for Fort Worth store


The Swedish company is proposing a 289,000-square-foot location to be built on 27 acres at the southwestern corner of I-35 and North Tarrant Parkway. The store, which would be situated 10 miles north of downtown Fort Worth, is expected to employ 500 workers during construction and 250 to staff the store once it opens.

According to plans, the location would feature 10,000 items, 50 room settings, three model home interiors, a supervised children’s play area and a 325-seat restaurant serving favorites like Swedish meatballs.

And it would cut down on carbon emissions though measures like recycling waste material and light bulbs; incorporating energy-efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning and lighting systems; using recycled construction materials; building warehouse skylights and water-efficient bathrooms; and eliminating plastic bags at check outs. :cheers:

If approved, construction would begin in spring 2018 and open in summer 2019.

More apartments to be built along Trinity River bluff downtown


The developer of a planned 343-unit apartment community along the Trinity River and Samuels Avenue has completed its purchase of land for the nearly 11-acre project and should soon hear whether it has permission from from the Army Corps of Engineers to build on the waterway.

Last May, it received approvals from the city’s Historic and Cultural Landmarks Commission to restore the historic Garvey House, at 769 Samuels Ave., that will become a part of the project, as well as from the Downtown Design Review Board for construction.

According to site plans, the apartments will be built around the Garvey House, primarily to the back and to the north of the historic home. The Garvey House will be renovated to become a leasing office and would also include amenities for residents. Another historic home, the Talbott-Wall House at 915 Samuels Ave., will be moved to a nearby lot.

Embrey has also filed for building permits from Fort Worth.

General Electric to move up to 225 locomotive production jobs to Fort Worth from Erie, Pa.


The transition would begin next year between April and June and would involve a recall of Fort Worth employees laid off earlier this year. It would also eliminate locomotive production at the Erie plant, which employs more than 2,500 people, by the end of 2018. About 575 jobs in Erie would be affected.

The move was necessary to drive efficiency and preserve U.S. jobs, said Richard Simpson, GE Transportation's vice president of global supply chain.

"Our Fort Worth facility is very competitive, and as a result, this allows us to compete in a very tough space," Simpson said.

Armour Hotel planned for former meatpacking site in the Historic Stockyards

Project Location


Three years after buying the property, a Fort Worth Stockyards development group is planning a $21 million, 120-room hotel called the Armour Hotel and has asked the city for an incentive on the project.

The City Council heard terms of a proposed $1 million incentive Tuesday for the project planned off East Exchange Avenue.

Under those terms, the group, Niles City Resort Ltd., would be required to invest a minimum of $21 million by December 2019 to develop a four-star hotel. The hotel would be required to have at least 40 full-time employees on staff a year later.

The hotel’s facade must be masonry and reflect the historical and architectural heritage of the Stockyards, according to the terms.

Philip Murrin said the five-story hotel is the first in a three-phased project at the site. Construction should start in early 2018 and the hotel be open by spring of 2019, he said.

On Tuesday, most of the council expressed support for the project.

Project Location


Facebook's mega sized data center in North Fort Worth is getting even bigger.

Facebook this week filed building permits to construct two more huge data center halls at its Fort Worth campus. The construction permits for the space totaled more than $365 million in value.

The 150-acre high-tech campus is expected to top out at more than $1 billion in value and is the largest concentration of computing power in the state.

The buildings house acres of computer servers and the equipment needed to keep them powered, cooled and running 24 hours a day.

"It's physically one of the largest we've ever built," Facebook's Tom Furlong said at the May grand opening.

A 4-star hotel and a Shake Shack are coming to the Stockyards. And that’s not all.


Hotel Drover, a new 4-star Marriott Autograph boutique hotel, along with an outpost of the popular Shake Shack chain were among the announcements made Thursday by Stockyards Heritage Development Company, a partnership between Majestic Realty Co. and The Hickman Companies.

Hotel Drover, which is being described as “a rustic resort,” will help anchor the redevelopment of Mule Alley that will include “shops, eateries, creative office spaces and live-entertainment venues,” according to the Stockyards developers.

“We would rather take a risk with an inventive tenant than play it safe with a chain that brings little to the table,” said Craig Cavileer, executive vice president of Majestic Realty Co./Stockyards Heritage Development Company. “We’re not looking to overly commercialize the Stockyards, we’re looking to make it even more exciting and broaden its appeal for locals as well as guests from Texas, the U.S. and around the world.”

The project, a public/private partnership with the City of Fort Worth and Tarrant County, just broke ground on the first phase of the $175 million development.
