Expansion work has begun at WestBend, the mixed-use development just west of the Fort Worth Zoo along Fort Worth’s bustling University Drive.

Parking garage demolition began on Tuesday at the development’s southeast corner to provide space for a new 81,150-square-foot building.

The structure is expected to include a retail anchor on ground floor, with 57,650 square feet of Class A office space directly above. Located along the Trinity Trail, the office building will have views over the trail, the zoo and downtown.

“We are excited to re-start our WestBend development,” said Terry Montesi, CEO of project developer Trademark, commenting in a news release.

The 278,000-square-foot project promises what Montesi called “a walkable urban experience.”.

“We will have several restaurants on the Trinity Trail with large trailside patios and additional shaded public spaces representing a significant evolution of the district,” Montesi said.

Crews recently removed four mature trees for relocation elsewhere on the property as part of the redevelopment plans.

WestBend tenants already include Zoe’s Kitchen, Smashburger, Silver Fox steakhouse and River Plaza office tenants. When complete in spring 2015, WestBend will offer 95,000 square feet of retail and dining, and 183,000 square feet of office space.
