Located at 1010 Houston St., the Fairfield Inn & Suites Fort Worth Downtown will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by Downtown FW Fairfield Lodging LLC and managed by Icon Lodging of Irving. The hotel’s management team is led by General Manager Catherine Carroll and Director of Sales Claire Maisel. Rates begin at $169 per night.

The hotel is built on the frame of the longtime Park Central Hotel next to the Flatiron Building on Houston Street.

“Delivering both function and comfort, our new design and décor elevate the Fairfield brand, setting a new standard in the moderate tier category,” said Callette Nielsen, vice president and global brand manager, Fairfield Inn & Suites.

Located near the Fort Worth Convention Center, the hotel is one of many scheduled to open soon in downtown, adding more than 1,000 hotel rooms in the next few years.

The Fairfield offers executive suites and some rooms feature balconies.

Amenities include a full-service bar, an exercise room, valet parking, an outdoor patio with a fire pit, valet laundry service, free Wi-Fi, and fax and copy services.



Fort Worth Harley-Davidson is expanding.

The project will increase the location’s size to 73,000 square feet and includes 7,000 square feet of customer experience zones, entertainment spaces and a dedicated classroom for the Riding Academy. The location at 3025 S. Loop 820 will be open during construction, which is expected to be complete by fall 2018.

“This expansion has been in the works for a long time and we are thrilled to be moving forward,” said Mark Smith, owner of Fort Worth Harley-Davidson. “With all the growth that Fort Worth is experiencing, we believe the timing could not be better, and we’re sparing no expense to provide the most exciting and unique experience of any Harley-Davidson store around.”

A groundbreaking “burn-out” was set for Oct. 14. The after party included a raffle that benefited the Careity Foundation.

The architect on the expansion is Martsolf Architecture of Fort Worth, and Muckleroy & Falls of Fort Worth is the project’s builder.



Crockett Row at West 7th is adding a food hall in the first half of 2018.

The 16,000-square-foot dining site will be located on the northwest corner of Crockett and Norwood streets.

The first of its kind in Fort Worth, the Crockett Street Food Hall will feature a variety of cuisines, including anchor tenant Knife Burger by John Tesar. Other options will include barbecue, burgers, Mexican food, sandwiches, coffee, pastries and doughnuts.

The food hall will house fast-casual food vendors in mini restaurant spaces that range from 100 to 1,000 square feet.

Inspired by Tesar’s work at The Commissary and Knife in Dallas, Knife Burger will offer four to five burgers daily and have a full bar. The 1,100-square-foot space will have counter seating within and open up into the food hall’s larger seating area.

The food hall will have a modern, industrial feel with polished concrete floors, according to a news release. It will have a full bar and seating for 115 in a centrally located area and about 70 outside on the patios and in the covered paseo between buildings. It will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have live music in the evenings.

Hospitality Alliance will manage the space in partnership with Crockett Row’s leasing team at The Woodmont Co. Hospitality Alliance has been involved in the development and opening of some of the top food halls around the country such as Urbanspace Vanderbilt in New York City.



Stream Realty Partners, a national real estate development, services and investment firm, has leased a 60,408-square-foot industrial space at Northport 35 Business Center located at 4251 Dale Earnhardt Drive in Northlake to reLogistics.

ReLogistics, a Houston-based provider of warehouse and pallet management services, will occupy most of Building C, which contains about 83,886 square feet. In addition, reLogistics will use a 45-trailer storage lot that will be built to compliment a space featuring 20 dock-high doors with additional stand-alone trailer positions.

Northport 35 Business Center sits on 60 acres east of Interstate 35W and north of Texas Highway 114. Its three-building, 945,000-square-foot industrial park is jointly developed by Stream Realty Partners and Clarion Partners.

Leasing agents for the project were Stream’s Dallas industrial team of Cannon Green, managing director and partner; Bob Hagewood, senior vice president; and Forrest Cook, associate. They worked closely with Matt Elliott of NAI Robert Lynn.

“This lease brings the project to 100 percent occupancy and near closure of our business plan,” Green said. “We envisioned a multi-tenant development rich with industrial amenities, including security, trailer storage and modern building features. … reLogistics is making use of additional contiguous land we targeted for supplemental trailer storage, a feature in high demand across the Metroplex.”

Northport 35 Business Center is a part of the Alliance Texas submarket and is near the Union Pacific and BNSF rail lines, Alliance Airport and the BNSF intermodal facility.
