First Financial Bank is firming up plans for a new office building at the former Blackmon Mooring location on the northwest corner of Forest Park Boulevard and West Rosedale Street.

The Abilene-based bank purchased the property in March and takes its case to the Aug. 6 Fort Worth City Council meeting, where it will request a zoning change from its current light industrial designation to intensive commercial.

No construction timeline has been confirmed, but bank officials hope to open the facility in 2014, according to Tom Malone, president of TMA-CHA Architects in Fort Worth, serving as project architect.

With the new bank would come new job opportunities.

“It will create several new positions,” Malone said.

Employees currently occupying the company’s only other Fort Worth branch on Bailey Street would move to the new building and occupy its second floor. Two and a half floors would be open for other tenants to lease, with the building expected to feature 34,000 square feet of office space.

A construction budget awaits approval from the bank’s board of directors.
