Fort Worth Photos of the Day

Recommended Posts

Downtown Fort Worth looks great.  Clean and busy on a warm sunny Sunday afternoon. Downtown and Sundance Square.  Today.  This downtown seems more alive than downtown Dallas.  Lots of new residential in older buildings.  Great retail and restaurants.

The Stockyards north of downtown today.   2 new hotels are being built in the district including an extension of  Stockyards with Mule Alley which among other tenants includes a Shake Shack (that is funny to me a NYC based burger chain in the heart of Stockyards district)  plus new 200 room Hotel Drover.  https://mulealleyfortworth.com/      https://hoteldrover.com/

This area was packed with tourists today and with this expansion getting even bigger.

Great collection of pictures.  I was actually in nearby Arlington TX two weeks ago on business but unfortunately did not have time to explore the area.  Was able to see the skyline of Fort Worth from my hotel room though.

Nice photos.  Forth Worth and San Antonio get some criticism from skyscraper nerds for their lack of  new skyscrapers.  But the downtown street activity in both cities is far better than some cities with much larger skylines.

If I was doing the power rankings of the downtowns of Texas the best would be not in any particular order Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio.    Both the larger cities of Houston and Dallas are way behind in street level and residential mixed uses in their downtowns.   Uptown Dallas outside of downtown is pretty active at the street level and high rises but not so much downtown Dallas.

I agree.  The Dallas and Houston downtowns are products of the 80s.  Awesome skyscrapers but built on plazas away from the street or designed with minimal street connectivity.

The Williams Tower in Houston is one of my top five favorite skyscrapers ever, but it was and somewhat still is a lone sentinel.

      Went by the office in Las Colinas.  Lot more mixed uses now up there more apartments, hotels and retail instead of just all office in the central area.  Now  surrounded by lots of condos, apartments, and single family homes.  Lots for land to develop with further high rises and so forth.  Nice addition is the Toyota  Music Factory developed by a Charlotte based developer next to the Irving Convention center.  Now that Las Colinas is linked by DART to the airport and downtown it should continue to evolve as  mini-city.

      Photos of the skyline today some downtown some uptown.  Gorgeous day after a tornado last night.   More photos of some other areas too coming soon.   Dallas Urbanplanet deserves to be more active with a lot going on in this the 4th largest metro area in the USA.
