Deco 969 high-rise residential tower breaks ground downtown

After several days of rain, the sun finally burst through the clouds during the groundbreaking ceremony for Southern Land Co.’s Deco 969 project on Thursday afternoon.

Deco 969 – located at 901 Commerce St. – marks the first high-rise residential tower to be built in downtown Fort Worth in more than 30 years. And with census data showing Fort Worth to be one of the fastest-growing large cities in the country, the project comes at an ideal time for the city.
