Craftwork Coffee Co. and Doc’s Records & Vintage will be pouring and spinning – respectively – their wares at Fort Worth’s Foundry District, developers of the project announced on Tuesday.
Doc’s Records & Vintage plans to open in an expanded space at The Foundry District in October 2017. The 9,800 square-foot, re-imagined warehouse will be located at 2632 Weisenberger St.in The Foundry District. The new, larger location for the shop will feature vendor booths filled with even more strange oddities, vintage wear and more space for events. That’s been the dream for owner Jenkins Boyd since Doc’s was opened in 2006. “I love the location,” said Boyd in a news release. “I love the warehouse space. I love that the landlords are interested in contributing to the culture of Fort Worth. I’m very excited to be involved with the Foundry and with like-minded people.”
Craftwork Coffee Co. at The Foundry District will be the third and largest location for the coffee shop/collaborative working environment.
The new location, at 3,900-square feet, will feature a combination of office suites, open co-working spaces, call booths, and conference rooms at 212 Carroll. They plan to open in 2018.
“We’ve been searching for a central Fort Worth location for the past year, and after M2G’s acquisition of 212 Carroll, we were confident that this was a fit for us,” said Craftwork Co-owner Riley Kiltz. “It creates a central hub that’s accessible for all of our workspace members, plus we’re able to go alongside a handful of local businesses that we already love.”
Craftwork Coffee currently has two locations, one on Camp Bowie Boulevard and Magnolia Avenue.
The Foundry District is one of several projects of M2G Ventures, founded by twin sisters Jessica Miller Worman and Susan Miller Gruppi. A part of the Cultural District, adjacent to Seventh Street and the Museum District, the newly rehabbed six-acre industrial development is home to a growing mix of local retailers and restaurants, creative offices, and alternative event venues. M2G is also behind the 710 S. Main St. development, which recently announced it will open Locust Cider, Fort Worth first cidery next year.
