Every revamped, re-imagined, and resuscitated area of town needs a catchy name. A sliver of real estate just north of Montgomery Plaza is now known as Foundry District − and it is poised for a renaissance.

With West Seventh now an entertainment and dining mecca, Montgomery Plaza well-established and the Left Bank development rapidly taking shape nearby, the long forgotten area is prime property once again and underwent a recent facelift in 2016 to boot.

The update to the original building was completed by M2G Ventures Founders (and twin sisters) Susan Gruppi and Jessica Worman.

Already home to longtime legend M&O Station Grill, Leonard’s Department Store Museum, Foundry recently became the new headquarters of the Cowtown Marathon, and also welcomed the fast growing City Surf Fitness studio to the mix last fall. SMU alumnus, Mitchell Brown, harnesses the allure of the waves in his popular 45 minute fitness classes which focus on the agility and balance of surfing. Brown plans to open even more locations this year both in Texas and surrounding states.

Foundry is home to 20,000 square feet of creative office space, 33,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space. “Our current roster of Foundry tenants also includes M2G Ventures, Morris Capital, Tactical Systems Network, Fort Capital, Hillstar Capital, and Fort Worth Screen Printing,” said Natalie Pedigo, marketing manager at M2G Ventures.

Now, Feathers, a brand new clothing and home décor concept by Leslie Harding Distler opens to the public on January 20. Distler served as buyer at Leddy’s Ranch in Sundance Square, which closed that location in December 2016. The new shop will offer women’s clothing (Western and not-so-Western), along with jewelry and accessories. Distler’s other passion is home décor, so home furnishings and her personal design services will be a big part of Feathers as well.

The grand opening celebration on January 20, benefited the Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation, which aims to conquer depression and prevent suicide (Feathers will donate a portion of proceeds from the grand opening sales).

Feathers occupies 2,800 square feet of a building owned by FW Whitmore Investors, L.P., a project by M2G Ventures in The Foundry District. The general contractor is CG Northern.

The residential component of The Foundry includes eight state of the art townhomes and boutique apartments being built by Fort Capital. Fort Capital announced that in addition to the eight luxury townhomes which are currently in the framing stages (all are three stories with dramatic rooftop balconies, and are smart homes that can be run from your cell phone), they will be breaking ground on a 72 unit boutique apartment complex to be completed in two phases this year.
