Fort Worth is getting its first downtown residential tower in more than three decades

In the midst of the booming Fort Worth multifamily market, Southern Land Company has begun construction on a 27-story residential high rise in the heart of the city.

“We never could understand why people wouldn’t be living in such an awesome environment,” said Tim Downey, CEO of Southern Land Company.

According to CBRE’s Dallas/Fort Worth Multifamily Marketview Q3 report, the central Fort Worth submarket, which includes downtown, has fewer multifamily units than almost every other area of the city. The new tower, Deco 969, marks the first high-rise residential tower to be built in downtown Fort Worth in more than 30 years, the city said.
