Shaking off pandemic downturn, downtown Fort Worth takes heart in construction, returning workers

With the shroud of the pandemic lifting, downtown Fort Worth is regaining vibrancy with new construction projects, workers returning to offices and activities and events ramping up.

“There are a lot of really good things happening in downtown Fort Worth,” said Andy Taft, president of Downtown Fort Worth Inc.

One of the most noticeable changes is the amount of construction underway on projects that have been in the pipeline for a while but were slowed or stalled during the pandemic.
