Recommended Posts

The Tandy Center is set to under go redevelopment. The former RadioShack headquarters will be turned into 350 residences, 1,200 parking spaces, and 75,000 sf of retail/restaurant space. Plans also call for extending Second Street through the property to help with better traffic flow in downtown.

Porter said no decision has been made regarding the north tower and whether it will remain as office space or be converted to residential use.

It will be the last phase of the project to be completed, he said.

The article also talks about how the developers are negotiating with the city seeking incentives to help with the project which could cost as much as $120M.

The north tower in the Tandy Center will remain office space and oil and gas company Range Resources will lease four floors with an option to lease two more floors.

The south tower in Tandy Center which will be renamed "City Place" will still be converted to residential. A new residential tower could also be added to the site, but a decision on that is still years away.

Porter said the towers will be redeveloped concurrently starting with the north tower. The $110 million redevelopment of the former RadioShack headquarters and Fort Worth Outlet Mall will be called City Place. The south tower will become One City Place, the north tower Two City Place.

More on the conversion of the Tandy Center to City Place.

Design plans for the building, located at 100 Throckmorton St., include an exterior tower glass overhaul and replacing the aging plates with dual-pane Viracon glass, which will change both the color and architectural look of the tower since most of the glass will be moved out from its current recessed position on the building.

Lighting features will also be added to the top of the building and the base of the office tower will be re-clad up to 40 feet high. Bathrooms will be renovated with stone countertops and PNL will also add 225 new parking spaces to the central garage.

The office building (Two City Place) will be completed April 1, 2007 while the residential building (One City Place) will be done in late 2007.

Time for an update...

Two City Place, the redevelopment of the north Tandy tower to Class A office space, is pretty well done. They are putting the finishing touches on it now. It looks very different with the new glass & paint job.

The rest of the project is picking up speed now. The old mall between the two towers is being torn down. It will be replaced by The Shops at City Place, which will be proper outward-facing urban design. Second Street will be reopened through the property. The Shops at City Place will be topped with a parking structure, and this parking structure will be designed to hold a twenty story tower in the future.

One City Place, the condo conversion of the south tower, will be underway soon. Here's a rendering:

Any idea what the plan is for the old ice rink area? Are they keeping the open space, or breaking it up? I like the shot of the tow excalators...I was one of the ones who painted them!

Updates - Two City Place is looking good. They are finishing up the building's base and the new plaza they are building next to it.
