Construction has started on the new 252-room, 16-story AC Hotel in downtown Fort Worth.

Jackson-Shaw, a national real estate development company headquartered in North Texas, said that when the property opens in the fall of 2020, it will be the first AC Hotel by Marriott to debut in Tarrant County, and will include the AC Lounge, a full bar serving local beers and hand-crafted cocktails, along with tapas plates. The hotel will also provide guests a European-style breakfast, 24-hour purposely designed wellness center as well as a separate, third-party leased, full-service restaurant on the first floor.

The hotel is located on the southwest corner of Fifth and Main Street, adjacent to the historical art deco Kress Building.

“We believe the hotel’s classic modern design, with its European soul and Spanish roots, will strongly complement the distinctive legacy and stylish sensibilities of downtown Fort Worth,” said Michele Wheeler, Jackson-Shaw president and chief operating officer. “Our company has deep roots in Tarrant County, including our Parc North urban industrial development and Chisholm Springs residential development. So, we’re thrilled that the AC Hotel will soon be part of Fort Worth’s vibrant cultural scene with its world-class performance venues, theaters, art galleries and festivals.”

The hotel will include modern guest rooms and public spaces designed with sleek furnishings, curated art installations and intuitive technology elements – as well as rooftop meeting space.

“Jackson-Shaw’s AC Hotel Fort Worth will be a great addition to our incredible downtown,” said Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price. “As a community that celebrates our rich arts and culture scene, we are excited for the unique experience AC Hotel will provide visitors, with curated art installations and a vibrant atmosphere.”

“We are thrilled to be working with Jackson-Shaw to open the first AC Hotels by Marriott®= in Tarrant County, Texas,” said Eric Jacobs, Marriott International, Chief Development Officer, Select and Extended Stay Brands.

AC Hotel Fort Worth is a creation of Jackson-Shaw, which has completed 60 million square feet of hospitality, industrial and residential developments since their founding in 1972. Development partners for the AC Hotel Fort Worth include:

• Financing: Simmons Bank

• Design: Merriman Anderson Architects

• General Contractor: Austin Commercial

• Project Management: Epperson Company
