Fort Growth is experiencing, well, growth in Fort Worth.
At its Tuesday, April 17 meeting, the Fort Worth City Council approved a pair of zoning requests from Fort Growth Partners LP.
In one action, involving almost an acre of property located at 109 and 113 Westfork Drive, zoning was changed from one-family to low intensity mixed use. The proposed use is office/commercial, and what businesses will go into the space has not been decided.
The property is located on the east side of Westfork, south of White Settlement Road, in an area now identified as the River District.
“This meets the overlay we put on this piece of property about a year ago,” said District 7 Council Member Dennis Shingleton, whose district includes both properties affected by the zoning changes.
“Ditto, move for approval,” Shingleton said before the council voted on the second change.
Both changes were unanimously approved with no opposition from the public.
Fort Growth’s second rezoning, in connection with PBP Properties, is at 220-232 Nursery Lane. The change is from two family to urban residential, with a plan to build townhomes. Shana Crawford at Fort Capital, LP, the agent for Fort Growth, said the venture will feature 44 detached units over 2.6 acres in conjunction with several other properties.
This property is on the west side of Nursery Lane, also south of White Settlement Road.
“They’re down next to the river. They’re all luxury,” Shingleton said. “They’re very nice.”
There have been several recent zoning cases in the area to rezone property to urban residential and low intensity mixed-use, especially along White Settlement Road.
The City Council will not meet April 24. Its next regular meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 1.
