Do you know if the City of Fort Worth's website lets you view site plans online? I was poking around a bit and couldn't find where exactly.

They do not, but the DDRB hearing is Thursday so renderings should be released shortly.

And, uncancelled? The developer is now seeking tax breaks in exchange for building the tower section.

Quote:
The downtown high-rise would have a minimum of 17 stories, 310 residential units, and an expected completion date of 2020, according to the presentation.


“There’s a perception that downtown Fort Worth is an unproven market for this type of residential product, and as such, that carries with it a perception of risk,” Henning said.
