The Near Southside Mercantile promises restaurants, retail and what planners call creative workspace when the 28,000-square-foot, mixed-use development opens along Eighth Avenue and Oleander Street in Fort Worth.

Handling construction is PRIM Construction LLC, with Huitt-Zollars Inc. serving as project architect for an undertaking spearheaded by Funky Town Development LLC. All three companies are Fort Worth firms. Project costs and a projected opening date were not available.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of the Near Southside’s continuing development.”, said Trent Prim, chief operating officer of PRIM Construction, commenting in a news release.

“The Near Southside Mercantile will be a vibrant, pedestrian friendly space with new opportunities for creative workspace, restaurants and retail,” Prim said.

More than 10,000 square feet of office space is available for lease, with retail and restaurant space available for lease through Transwestern. The two-building project’s street address is 1217 and 1225 Eighth Ave.

The project will make use of “human scale space,” according to David Campbell, vice president of Huitt-Zollars. Copper exterior panels, exposed wood timbers and steel structures, and a courtyard with water feature are meant to give users “an intriguing space in, between, and around the buildings,” Campbell said.

“The spirit of the Near Southside is reflected in the buildings and open spaces”, said Beth Prim, CEO of PRIM Construction.
