Situated between downtown Fort Worth and the Cultural District, the 7th Street area has been rapidly redeveloping in recent years. Foch Street is near the heart of this burgeoning revitalization. This tour features three projects on Foch Street that showcase the diversity of the project and building types in this eclectic area, and the great design that can emerge from such unique opportunities. These include:
West 7th Street, a midrise office/retail development designed by Good Fulton & Farrell. The 900,000-sf complex creates a strong anchor as an entertainment and shopping venue. It envelopes Crockett Street with buildings five to six stories tall that provide retail space on the ground floor with office and residential above. The project draws inspiration from the area's historical and contemporary roots.
iProspect, an office space designed by VLK Architects that focuses on modernization and providing its employees with a solid working environment. The conversion of the one-story warehouse into a new office location allowed the agency to incorporate the character of the existing space into the new design. iProspect intertwines the historical elements of Fort Worth with the modern, high-tech industry that the company serves.
1000 Foch Street, a reuse of two early 20th-century industrial buildings into offices for small entrepreneurial companies. The found condition of the buildings, while visibly rough, proved to be reasonable and structurally sound. New additions to the Quonset hut include simple wood clad boxes set in the space between the two existing buildings. The new materials and aesthetic vocabulary of the interior and exterior play off of the industrial nature of the existing buildings and, along with the simple native landscape, unify the site as one identifiable statement.
