A small business with big ambitions may find suitable accommodations just west of downtown. That’s where the historic Yates-Ottman building between Seventh Street and Lancaster Avenue offers 1,352 square feet of office space for lease. Built in 1953 and designated a local landmark, the building was designed as an advertising agency for Harry Ottman by architect Robert Woltz, a noted local architect at the time. It has never been remodeled. The building features five offices, a reception area, break room and onsite parking for five vehicles. Marketed by Jim Parr of William C. Jennings Co., total proceeds from the $2,200 monthly lease payment help fund programs at Historic Fort Worth Inc., including maintenance and operation of Thistle Hill, McFarland House and the Yates-Ottman building itself. The property, located at 1020 Summit Ave., is being marketed for a three-year term only.
