Are there any definite building designs yet? I'd prefer New Classical and solid postmodern architectural designs for a new vibrant urban area that sustains a long time.

Renderings

I just discovered this thread. These are some of the first true renderings for upcoming developments for Panther Island, as posted a couple months ago on the Fort Worth forum by Austin55. Will try to keep this thread updated.

Developer buys land for first apartments at Fort Worth’s Panther Island

More about the renderings as posted on the TRVA website:



Quote:
A Dallas company has bought nearly 2.5 acres on what will be Panther Island for a 300-unit apartment community, marking the first private development planned for the $909 million Trinity River Vision project north of downtown Fort Worth.

The planned $55 million residential community, called Encore Panther Island, will be situated along the first segment of canal that will run through the interior of the island, at Fourth and Main Streets, just north of the old TXU power plant and south of Panther Island Brewing.

Encore Multi-Family Llc., a division of the Dallas-based Encore Enterprises real estate development firm, said a portion of the canal will accommodate a water taxi stop as well as places for kayaks, canoes and standup paddle boards to launch. Some apartments will feature waterfront balconies. Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2017 and be completed a year later, the developer said.

“We carefully studied the Riverwalk in San Antonio and worked closely with the Trinity River Vision Authority Design Committee to combine the organic feel beloved in San Antonio with Fort Worth’s distinct culture to create a one-of- a-kind living experience,” said Bradley Miller, president of Encore Multi-Family, in a statement.

The 233,198-square-foot community will feature “creative solutions to connect the streetscape to the Riverwalk environment planned for the district,” Encore said. Amenities will include an infinity pool with cascading waterfalls, a fitness facility and a top floor lounge with views of downtown.

Encore Panther Island will consist of 32 efficiencies, 199 one-bedroom and 69 two-bedroom units, ranging in size from 555 square feet to 1,321 square feet. Rents will range from $975 to $2,500 a month, Encore said.

“We are excited to be the first of many projects on Panther Island,” Miller said. “It very much reminds me of the Harbor Island project in Tampa, which is situated across the bridge from downtown Tampa and now fully developed with mixed-use. I see many similarities between Panther Island and Harbor Island and believe the project will sustain similar success.”

More than 10,000 residences are planned for the Panther Island District, which will feature 12 miles of urban waterfront.

Once called Trinity Uptown, the Trinity River Vision project, planned to include thousands of residences and businesses, a town lake and river bypass channel, was conceptualized in the early 2000s and received Army Corp of Engineers approval by about 2004. The project includes the construction of three bridges at Henderson, North Main and White Settlement. Those are to be completed in 2018.

Despite meeting some opposition from lawmakers who said they viewed the project as a boondoggle, the project earlier this month received key support in Congress when it authorized the funding of up to $526 million for the project. The project was included as part of a $5 billion water projects authorization bills for the Army Corp of Engineers. The Trinity River Vision project is expected to get final Congressional funding later this year.

The remainder of the funding comes from Fort Worth, Tarrant County and a tax increment finance district established for the project’s area.

The first project proposed for Panther Island, a 5 floor multi-family project called: Encore Panther Island. To begin construction Summer 2017.

Quote:
The first large private development for the Panther Island District was announced Oct. 20 and officials behind the Trinity River Vision project say they expect to see many announcements follow.

“This announcement just opened the next phase of Panther Island – dynamic vertical growth,” said J.D. Granger, executive director of the Trinity River Vision Authority, the organization responsible for the implementation of the Trinity River Vision (TRV) plan.

Encore Multi-Family LLC, a subsidiary of the Dallas-based Encore Enterprises Inc., announced Oct. 20 it is officially under contract to break ground on the first private development on Panther Island. The 233,198 square-foot multi-family community, called Encore Panther Island, will connect the streetscape to the Riverwalk environment planned for the district. Residents will have waterfront balconies, an infinity pool with cascading waterfalls, a state-of-the-art fitness facility and a top floor lounge that will feature views of downtown. Located at the intersection of 4th Street and North Main Street, residents at the 300-unit community will be walking distance to neighbors such as Panther Island Brewing, Coyote Drive-In and Panther Island Pavilion.
