Arrow FORT WORTH | 640 Taylor Street (Jetta) | 383 FT | 26 FLOORS

26-story mixed-use tower planned at Taylor & Fifth in downtown Fort Worth




Quote:
Jetta Operating Co., a 24-year-old privately held oil and gas company in Fort Worth, and a related entity plan a 26-story mixed-use tower downtown at Taylor and Fifth streets on a site once owned by the Star-Telegram.

Anthracite Realty Partners, owned by Greg Bird, president and owner of Jetta, is requesting approval of certain waivers from streetscape and building edge standards from the Downtown Design Review Board. The board will consider the case Thursday.

Anthracite last year bought the site at 640 Taylor Street from the Fort Worth Club, which had purchased it from the Star-Telegram, and confirmed it would build offices there. The site is now a parking lot, but once housed the newspaper’s Annex building.

Jetta will move its headquarters from the Fort Worth Club tower across the street into the new building, Catherine Severin, Jetta vice president of administration and corporate communications, said Monday in an interview.

City officials said the building will have parking, office, and two floors of residential at the top.

Severin said she couldn’t be more specific about plans, including the planned square footage of the building and how much of it Jetta will absorb, ahead of Thursday’s meeting. But she said the building will include Jetta, “tenants,” parking for them and the Fort Worth Club, and retail space.


Anthracite will develop the building, she said. Anthracite and Jetta confirmed last year that Bennett Benner Partners is the architect.

FORT WORTH | 640 Taylor | ~370 FT. | 26 Floors

Design was unveiled a bit ago. The lot is currently surface parking, a huge improvement. The first core high rise since 2008 in FW.

The building will have ground floor retail, garage to level 11, 12 & 13 will be bar and restaurant space, 14-24 will be office and top two levels will be residential. This building has everything!

Jetta Operating and Morningstar, two local oil companies, have signed on to take some of the office space.

More info here, perhaps behind a paywall. http://www.star-telegram.com/news/bu...e14578358.html

Fort Worth-based Jetta Operating Company Inc., a privately held oil and gas firm, plans to move its headquarters into a soon-to-be developed 25-story office tower in downtown Fort Worth, which will set a new operating standard for the firm.

The energy firm will occupy about 70,000 square feet of the 25-story, 313,000-square-foot glass-and-steel office tower, called 640 Taylor, at Taylor and West 5th streets in the city's urban center.

Frost Bank has announced they have leased a majority of the office space and the building will be named after them.

Groundbreaking should be soon.

Looks nice. And that is a great picture. I didn't realize the Tandy Center looked that good after they renovated it.

A ceremonial groundbreaking was held today. Will look for signs of site prep in the coming days. Could be U/C here shortly.

Really deep excavation now. The writing on the walls say 60". Should begin construction soon.



Drilling bits & equipment?





Just for context of what the site looks like from street level,

FAA obstruction request form has this listed at 383 feet.

The crane has asked for 440 feet.

Excavation as of 5/14/16. I believe this is as deep as it will get. Drilling rigs in place.
