Trinity Uptown™ is a bold new plan for waterfront development. It aims to revitalize an 800-acre area north of downtown Fort Worth with a combination of public improvements and private development. Its goal is to provide a vibrant, stimulating environment in which families can live, work, shop, play, and learn. The combination of public improvements and private development is key to understanding this project. Private development of the area will be possible once flood protection is in place and levees are removed to open up the land. The area will enable up to 10,000 new homes to be constructed in the area, providing a solution to the demand for high-density urban housing. Fort Worth is the fastest-growing large city in the United States. Its population is expected to increase by more than 50% in the next 20 years, and Trinity Uptown will provide a cost-efficient and viable alternative to annexation and urban sprawl.
Fort Worth Cats owner Carl Bell is planning 1.5 million square feet of space for office and retail. Bell's development is the first large office space to be added to the Trinity River Vision's 800 acre area. It will be located on 36 acres next to LaGrave Field. This is great information for those advocating the growth to the north of Fort Worth's central business district.
