1001 / 1007 South Main Street

Fort Worth, Texas

Scope:  7,900 SF new building; 3,550 Restaurant SF & 4,360 SF Office

Completed: April 2017

About:  South Main Street in the Near Southside Fort Worth is moving out of the past as a manufacturing district and moving into the future.  A $8.6 million complete street renovation of South Main Street sparked a wave of new development from Vickery to Rosedale.  The rebuilt street will provide wider sidewalks, street trees and lights, safer pedestrian crossings, and bike lane improvements.

Exterior:    The exterior is meant to look like two distinct separate buildings built next to one another.  Along with contrasting bright colors. these features provide future tenants an individualized facade for signage.

The 1001 facade combines ebony brick with a panelized fiber cement box that overhangs the new street.  The overhang multi-functions as a rain canopy, sun shade, and provides the second floor tenant with additional rentable area.  Traveling from the north end of South Main Street, the building casts an oversized appearance of modern design and construction.

The 1007 facade is built with red brick, similar to surrounding buildings.  Large overhead style windows provide a visual connection to the activity on Main Street.  A stained wood sun screen wraps the corner to reduce the amount of direct afternoon west sun.  On the southern facade, glass blocks dance around the entire party wall to provide interest from Rosedale.
