West 7th opening up garages for free to visitors who park by 5 p.m.

Fort Worth’s West 7th development is opening its five parking garages for free parking every day before 5 p.m., with no validation required.

In what’s calling its “Good Neighbor” parking experience, West 7th is making parking free, 7 a.m.-5 p.m., effective immediately.  As long as the parking ticket is pulled before 5 p.m., parking in the garages will be free, regardless of when the patron exits.

Parking will remain free at other hours for West 7th patrons whose parking tickets are validated, Angela Hall, marketing director for Vestar, West 7th’s agency, said.

The parking fee structure for patrons who enter the garages after 5 p.m. and visit establishments outside the West 7th development:

  • Free, up to 1 hour
  • $3, 1 to 2 hours
  • $6, 2 to 3 hours
  • $8, 3 to 4 hours
  • $10 maximum – 4 hours or more

The garages accept credit cards only.

The changes help alleviate the parking crunch in the West 7th area, where the Cultural District Alliance and merchants have been discussing ways to make parking more convenient. Many patrons of the area visit establishments outside the West 7th development, west of Foch Street, south of West 7th, and east of Universiity Drive.

The changes, West 7th noted, also come just before the holidays. West 7th is about to complete $4 million in improvements. Expected to be complete by Nov. 21, the improvements include completing Crockett Circle above the intersection of Crockett and Currie streets.

The improvements also include the construction of the Crockett Square Canopy, a new central space next to the Rafain Brazilian Statekhouse that will be used for special events, live music, and other events.
