Fort Worth Friday

Today we're going to take a look at one of several buildings/areas of Fort Worth that have been revitalized--

The old Montgomery Wards building--

(used without permission, not sure the actual photo date)

The building was built back in 1928 and was the largest building in Texas for many years. It was built so well, it apparently withstood the 1949 flood and the tornadoes of 2000--probably because of the 12 inch concrete walls! (

These days, the whole area has been built up. Not only has the building itself been renovated and now sports condo lofts (, shopping and dining, but the empty property around it is filled with additional retail and living space. Not only that, but it's only a few blocks from FW's Cultural District.

Here it is these days (pictures taken by moi 05.07.13):

The bottom picture is the rear of the building--it's north arm extending farther back than the south arm. As I was driving around I saw a restaurant on top of one of the smaller buildings. One of these days, I have to go in there and chack it out.
