FORT WORTH | Museum Place | Cultural District | U/C

Museum Place is a large multiblock mixed-use urban development now underway in the Cultural District just outside downtown. The development grows from the big University/Camp Bowie/West 7th/Bailey intersection and is right next to the Modern Art Museum and the Kimbell Art Museum. It will cover 11 acres.

The project will feature 173,000 square feet of ground-level retail space, 130,000 square feet of Class A office space, an Aloft Hotel, 40 purchasable condos, and 500 rental apartments. In addition, it will feature a new Post Office designed by Venturi, Scott Brown, and Associates.

Renderings:









The Post Office. The curved poles in the plaza are big steel poles that originally supported a billboard, and were bent by the tornado that hit downtown Fort Worth and the Cultural District in 2000. They are being integrated into the Post Office plaza as sculpture, and that side of the Post Office will feature a huge mural of a thunderstorm sweeping across the Texas prairie with the Post Office "Neither snow nor rain" motto.

Construction is underway. There is a crane going up at this block now:

This live/work development in the project is already vertical. The development has already attracted others - the townhomes to the right are brand new:

The glassy Flatiron in the rendering above is going here, and the historic building in back is being integrated into the development, with its parking lot converted to a street with on-street parking:

Cranes at night for the office/residential/retail building at the big intersection (I have also seen on Museum Place's site plans that this building has a space marked "cinema").

Meanwhile, the first building is topping out.
