Fort Worth - A Growing City

Fort Worth - A Growing City

From the Stockyards to Sundance Square, Fort Worth offers a unique blend of cowboys, culture and character to locals and visitors alike. Fort Worth's population continues to boom as people flock to the city for the steady economy, world class entertainment and laid back lifestyle that consistently rank it at the top of "America's Most Livable Cities."

The recent growth has led the city to seek smarter solutions to handle major population increases. The most well-known plan is the Panther Island Plan.

The plan for this area is a road map for smart, sustainable redevelopment of our city's core. It will transform a once-neglected section of the Trinity River into a vibrant riverfront neighborhood with major opportunities for living, employment, education and recreation. Setting it apart from other mixed use development opportunities, this plan creates 12 miles of urban waterfront development potential.
