Yes, a SuperTarget has produce and meats but I am not sure about the operating hours. I think all stores are different regarding their hours of operating and I am not sure about the one on 7th.

Quick update...
The few available spots left at the Lofts at West 7th are out of our rice range
There's only 3 tenants so far at So7 Parkside lol.
Trinity Bluff seems to be the most affordable and has the most availablity

There's also this place called Gallery1701/Colonial Park Apts. It's sorta near the train tracks and University Park Village. What's this area like? Is it mostly TCU students?

Most TCU students I knew lived closer to campus or on Hulen and Stonegate Blvd area. There used to be ALOT of students there and I think there still is. I don't know much about Gallery 1701 but if they are pretty pricey I don't think there will be too many students.

Sayhey,

If you like the Trinity Bluff/Lincoln Park Apartments on Samuels Avenue and find them affordable, then that might be the best solution. Getting to downtown venues from there is quite easy and you have the advantage of probably being the first tenant to occupy the fresh apartment. The super-Target is a short drive down Belknap to Summit and on to W. 7th, and there's a nearby Walmart (Beach & Hwy 121) as well, if you so choose. If all of that is appealing, then welcome to our neighborhood.

UPPER WEST SIDE: This is the area bound roughly by the Trinity River to the west, Henderson Street to the east, the Trinity River again to the north, and I-35 to the South. This area has a ton of new urban living options such as Firestone, AMLI UWS, Talavera condos, Westview condos, and urban senior living residences at Trinity Terrace, City Tower, and the planned River Tower. This pros of this area are that it is located between Sundance Square and the Cultural District. The downside of this area is that it lacks a large retail base that makes for a walkable neighborhood.

SUNDANCE SQUARE: Located in the heart of Downtown, this area is characterized by its bars, retaurants, and retailers. It is extremely walkable and always bustling with activity.

TRINITY BLUFF/UPTOWN: This area is on the northern edge of Downtown. It is a long term (20 year) master plan that will include approximately 10,000 urban residences when complete, along with retail, office, and park space. There are a ton of options for urban living such as Lincoln Trinity Bluff & Lincoln Park which are great rental properties, and Villa de Leon, Palisades townhomes, Pecan Place townhomes, Pecan Place condos, and The Cassidy. This neighborhood is currently very short on retail offerings, but retail is planned in future developments.

CULTURAL DISTRICT/WEST 7TH STREET: This area is located just west of Downtown across from the Trinity River. It is characterized by the numerous world class museums and West 7th Street, which has emerged in the last few years as a major destination street with large mixed-use developments such as West 7th, Museum Place, Montgomery Plaza, and So7. There are also a large number of smaller infill developments that have made this a true mixed-use neighborhood. Camp Bowie Boulevard is another major street in this area and connects to some of Fort Worth's wealthiest neighborhoods.

NEAR SOUTHSIDE/FAIRMOUNT: This area is located immediately south of Downtown and is arguably the most up-and-coming area of the city. It is the home of the Medical District, and is the second largest employment center in Tarrant County with over 30,000 people working in the area. Fairmount, the predominant neighborhood in the area, is one of the largest historic districts in the Western United States by number of contributing structures. This is one of only three neighborhoods, along with Downtown and Trinity Bluff, that has set urban design standards that require all new developments to abide by strict guidelines that promote a dense, walkable, mixed-use area. Magnolia Avenue is the main destination street in the area and is characterized by its many locally owned businesses.

A budget of $800-$1400 for a one bedroom will allow you to live in any of these areas comfortably.
