The Fort Worth City Council on Oct. 16 approved a zoning change for Bravo Lonestar Entertainment LLC to bring a residential facility to 950 University Drive and 1229 Jacksboro Highway. The change is from light industrial and two-family to low-intensity mixed-use.

The property is part of the Trinity Uptown Peripheral Overlay, which was put in place to promote development compatible with the Trinity Uptown Form Based Districts, which have since been renamed Panther Island.

The proposed multi-family project is across University from Rockwood Park and one block from Jacksboro Highway/State Highway 199. The property is now being used as a Mexican-style bazaar and smaller industrial uses, District 2 Councilman Carlos Flores said. The mixed-use district allows for construction of a three-story single-use residential building or a five-story mixed-use building.

“Preliminary discussions include the possibility of including soccer fields,” Flores said. “The neighborhood organizations representing this area are supportive.”

The company plans to build 315 residential units with interior structured parking. The parking garage allows for a one-story bonus, with most of the proposed buildings to be four-story.

The property is within the floodplain. It is likely that all the buildings will be elevated out of the floodplain and detention will be required, after completion and approval of the Storm Water Plan.
