A luxury apartment building in the heart of Fort Worth takes a step closer to its ascent

A long-planned 27-story apartment building in the heart of downtown Fort Worth took one step closer to reality Thursday, as Nashville-based developer Southern Land Co. announced it had begun to work on the project.

The building at 969 Commerce St. will offer 302 one- to three-bedroom apartments, eight floors of parking and “resort-inspired amenities,” according to a press release from Southern Land Co. The first floor will include space for shops and restaurants.
