The River District is one of Fort Worth’s hottest communities under construction, attracting both future residents and businesses alike. The buzzy new area is thanks to the vision of Fort Capital and its rezoning initiatives to reshape the area. In addition to MU-1 zoning for apartments, Fort Capital is one of the first developers in town to take advantage of the City of Fort Worth’s new Urban Residential (UR) zoning designation.
“The UR zoning designation is paving the way for denser, pedestrian-oriented residential development that serves as a flexible buffer between single-family neighborhoods and denser developments oftentimes comprised of larger mixed-use, multifamily projects,” said Will Northern, broker-owner of Northern Realty Group and the mayor’s appointee to the City’s zoning commission.
Located on a 276-acre stretch along the Trinity River near White Settlement and South Roberts Cut Off roads, those who call it home will not be far from restaurants like Salsa Limón and Heim Barbecue, as well as attractions like Truck Yard, a 15,000-square-foot outdoor food truck park and beer garden, and Crystal Springs on the River, an outdoor entertainment center that will host live music. Among the housing projects in The River District are River Heights, built by Clarity Homes and Village Homes, and Rivercrest Bluffs, built by Village Homes, Ramsey & Shaw and Landon Banks Construction. These two gated, luxury neighborhoods overlooking the Trinity River are already complete, with the homes at River Heights averaging around $500,000 and the homes in Rivercrest Bluffs averaging about $1 million. Village Homes also just broke ground on The Grove at The River District, 16 luxury 1,800-2,000 single-family units that will start at $450,000.
