This Fort Worth downtown tract has unlimited zoning capacity and industrial-residential-agricultural mixed-use.
We found a utopia in Texas. There is so much potential in downtown tract 1233.02. Not only does it have unlimited buildable area in the zoning rules, but it also allows for multifamily, industrial, and urban agriculture—on the same site. These innovative zoning mixes provide a platform for city optimization.
What is the development potential of downtown Fort Worth?
In less than a square mile, this small tract holds 229 vacant sites, 183 of which have no zoning restrictions, 22 have a 12-story height restriction, and 24 are PD zoning. PDs are zoning districts unique to that site and negotiated individually with the city.
What would combining retail, industrial, office, and multifamily in a single building look like?
Using the Deepblocks software, we modeled a scenario in one of the vacant downtown sites. A mixed-use building with 294 units, 28,817 SF of retail space, 87,212 SF of office space, and 165,656 SF of industrial. I didn’t add parking yet, but this should not be a problem given the unlimited zoning.
Can we reduce transportation and overall energy use if every building included food production, warehouses, offices, retail, and residential?
Every week we source development sites in a different neighborhood.
