SOUTHERN LAND STARTS INFRASTRUCTURE WORK ON LUXURY DOWNTOWN FORT WORTH APARTMENT TOWER

Southern Land Co. announced it’s begun infrastructure work for its planned 27-story luxury high-rise apartment tower at 969 Commerce St. in downtown Fort Worth, the city’s first downtown high-rise of rental units.

Southern Land said it expected to break ground this fall on the 302-unit building at 969 Commerce St. and Ninth Street, a site it bought in 2017 from XTO Energy, which sold its downtown portfolio of properties after it announced its sale to ExxonMobil.
