A West Seventh district property has been acquired by a Fort Worth real estate investor who is planning a dining and entertainment venue for the location.
The property at 2818 Morton St. includes a vacant, 8,060-square-foot two-story office building on a 13,000-square-foot lot. It was most recently the location of Inkwell Graphics.
Investor Allan Meyer envisions a multi-concept venue featuring indoor, outdoor and rooftop amenities in the remodeled building.
“For me, this was a real estate grab,” said Meyer, chairman of locally based May Group International and managing partner of RR Morton LLC, the buyer of record.
“There are not many properties that come on the market in West 7th,” he said in a statement.
Though not a restaurateur, Meyer has industry contacts that be believes can create a destination concept featuring eclectic dining space, craft cocktail lounge, rooftop bar and one of the West 7th development’s largest green spaces for live music and other outdoor functions.
Richard Allen of Dallas-based Cafe Build is spearheading design and construction of the as-yet-unnamed venue. Construction is expected to begin soon and be completed by early 2017.
“This is one of the last pieces of real estate in West 7th that hasn’t been redeveloped or sold for redevelopment. This is a good opportunity for upside in a real estate investment,” said Theron Bryant, principal of Coldwell Banker Commercial Alliance DFW and head of its Fort Worth office, commenting in a news release. Bryant represented the buyer.
