But on the bright side, it'll create a more urban environment that's less intimidating. It'll be a mix of what you see in the Upper Westside (between Henderson and the Trinity) and West 7th. What will be more interesting it seeing exactly what will happen with LaGrave Field since the owner packed up and headed to Houston, leaving it abandoned.
25 Stories sounds good to me!


Yeah I had done some research on FW Cats, not only did the team dissolve, the whole league they were playing for did too. Problem was there was nothing to sustain them prior. They were in an industrial dead zone. But who knows what will happen with that Stadium. A smart thing to do would be for FWISD to buy it and host baseball games there. Be cool for high school kids to play their ball games in Downtown. In a perfect world Fort Worth would put a bid for the Rangers Stadium. Build a beautiful park, picture a ball park in the middle of the island, and homeruns going into the trinity river. A good example is AT&T park in San Francisco. It will never happen, but one can dream!

So do they have any idea when all of these projects are supposed to be completed?

They've postponed it at least 5 times. I remember back in 2004 them saying by 2018 the island would be mostly completed, then 2020, 2022, but finally they have said that by 2024 it should be done. But that's just the island, that doesn't include inside private development on the actual island itself. If we are lucky developers will begin soon. But realistically the vast majority of construction and density will occur after the island is completed. I would say maybe 15 years time it will be what they dream for it to be. Sorry, don't mean to be sour about it. lol

The island itself: 2024.
The development on it will stretch, like everywhere else.

Are you saying that the water feature and bridges of the project will be completed by 2024? Or are you saying the island will be fully developed with infrastructure (commercial & residential) by 2024.

The bridges should all be done before then, actually, seeing how they're building them now before they dig any canals. The announcement of its first development projects will come within the next 2 months.

The actual set up of Panther Island is scheduled to be finished by 2024.

Why is Fort Worth kicking Dallas's butt when it comes to developing the Trinity's banks? As for the Rangers moving to Panther Island, that would be cool but I doubt it'll ever happen. For some reason people from Fort Worth are willing to travel to Dallas for events but Dallasites aren't willing to do the same. It would hurt ticket sales if they moved to Fort Worth.

Not because I am from Fort Worth, or because I live here. But I truly feel Fort Worth is kicking not only Dallas's butt in development but many other major cities across the country. This city is really trying, and it will pay off.

I agree. Ft. Worth is putting together some really good projects (rail-to-airport, Panther Island) that will make the city even more desirable. Hopefully it can be done on the down-low, without the hype and media attention that is currently surrounding a certain Texas city to the south....

We're still seen as "just another part of Dallas" despite having the growth we've seen the last 2 decades and ESPN's broadcasting here the last few years... so I don't think you have to worry about that.
