This project is still early in the planning stages, but it could move quickly and be completed by mid-2008. The floor plates for the building will be 20,000 sf in size and the building will contain 200,000 sf of office space and 300 condominiums. It will also include ground level retail space with 10 levels of parking above that.

That is great new for the city of Fort Worth. That is also a very rapidly growing city. I'm jealous I wish we had a 60 story plus building in SA. All we do is flirt with 20 story buildings down here

Developers anticipate completing design work, marketing tools, videos, virtual tours and a rendering by mid-February 2006. Then, they will begin pre-sales and the four- to six-month-long process of architecture, engineering and permitting work.

The proposed building, located at the SE corner of Calhoun and Sixth streets, would be comparable in height to Bank One Center and Fountain Place in DT Dallas.

I thought Fountain Place was just 720'. Maybe they're just talking about number of stories.

What is the tallest building in Dallas and what is its height???

929' I believe it's Bank of America.

The addition of the 200,000 sf of Class A office space planned for this project is expected to be absorbed quickly. Currently, it is estimated that the Class A occupancy rate in downtown Fort Worth is at 95% with only ~206,000 sf available.

Downtown Fort Worth hasn't had any speculative office space built since the Chase Bank Building at Fourth and Throckmorton streets opened in 2002. A full floor of space isn't available right now in the downtown market.

The condo portion of this project is more questionable as it could be difficult to find buyers for the 300 units at the price ranges established for this project. The condos are expected to be priced about $350 per square foot, while condos at The Tower which opened earlier this year sold for about $100 per square foot. In addition, more planned projects around downtown Fort Worth will mean increased compitition for this project.

Well, looks like this project will not happen in it's originally proposed 60-story form. This is a blurb from the article about the Omni Fort Worth Hotel groundbreaking.

Moreover, developers of a proposed 60-story office-condo tower at Seventh and Calhoun streets are redesigning their project without the condos. That tower, if built, would be 30 stories or less. The developers said the condos were making the project too costly.
