Fort Worth is “Where the West Begins,” and East Fort Worth is the gateway. The area is geographically well positioned in the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex, and that advantage is being noticed as the redevelopment trend continues from the city’s center outward. Two major commercial corridors—East Lancaster Avenue and East Rosedale Street—run east–west through east Fort Worth. The tour will feature three urban villages on East Lancaster Avenue, where a new public improvement district is in place, and a new transit-oriented design plan will serve as a template for redevelopment. Next, the tour will visit East Rosedale Street, which features two urban villages, an energized Texas Wesleyan University, and a $345 million redevelopment project that will transform a former public housing complex into a revitalized mixed-income neighborhood. If you are a developer with a pioneering approach to development who is looking for fresh opportunities, hop on the bus.
