Fort Worth seeks developer for mixed-use redevelopment project

March 12, 2024

The city of Fort Worth has launched a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) to choose a master developer for a mixed-use redevelopment project that will bring housing and industry to the city’s historic southside. The city terminated its contract with a developer in December 2023 after numerous unacceptable delays and missed deadlines. 

Developers must submit RFEI proposals by April 22, 2024. A committee of city staff, business organization and community members will review the submissions and begin interviews with finalists May 14, 2024. City officials will announce the new master developer following the interview process. 

The Evans and Rosedale “urban village” is planned on 7.5-acres just south of downtown Fort Worth. Plans call for multifamily residential units, townhomes, green space, a grocery store and ground-floor commercial space with residential units above. 

Over the past 30 years, the city has spent $30 million on public investments and community planning to redevelop the area. City officials have stayed steadfast in their goal: to preserve the history of the area while developing its commercial and community appeal. 

Construction is planned to begin in 2025, utilizing remaining American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds.
