Construction Underway on Sustainable Headquarters Building for Fort Capital in Fort Worth
FORT WORTH, TX Fort Worth, Texas, -based Fort Capital, the development company behind the city's River District, has begun construction on its new 16,500-square-foot sustainable headquarters building, located at 105 Nursery Lane in Fort Worth. Slated for completion in February 2017, it is the first non-residential property to break ground in the new upscale riverside entertainment and housing district located off White Settlement Road in Fort Worth's west side.
Previously located at 1000 Foch Street, Fort Capital's new location will house the company's existing full-time employees while also allowing for future growth. Fort Capital was founded by Chris Powers in 2010, and has since invested more than $70 million in residential, student housing and commercial developments throughout Dallas-Fort Worth.
In addition to housing Fort Capital, the new Class-A facility will offer seven-to-ten additional office spaces of various sizes, 92 percent of which have already been leased to RRIG Energy, Jetstream Oil & Gas, Flynn & Watson Architects, Tilden Capital, LP, Blackwing Capital, LLC, and Panther City Disposal.
Fort Capital designed and is building the highly efficient, two-story industrial-modern workplace as a tribute to its commitment to environmental responsibility and innovation. Resembling a modern-day treehouse, many sustainable design strategies are being incorporated, such as reclaimed 150-year-old longleaf heart pine wood flooring and paneling, tables and chairs made from a local tree trunk slab, reclaimed interior Chicago-style brick from the early 1900s, low-E, argon gas-filled glass windows, and more.
Fort Capital unveiled its development plans for The River District to the public in April 2016. The 276-acre community will offer outdoor and indoor entertainment options, housing at multiple price points, unique restaurants, and recreational spaces in a walk-able, riverside setting located just three miles west of downtown Fort Worth.
