Why Downtown Fort Worth?

Downtown Is Built for Business

Downtown Fort Worth was recently named the #1 Downtown in America thanks to its low unemployment rate, high occupancy rate of both residential and retail and the bounty of museums, parks and entertainment venues available here.  Downtown is located in one of the fastest growing cities in America, is served by commuter rail, Interstates35 and 30 and is located just 24 miles from D/FW International Airport and 18 miles from Fort Worth Alliance Airport, the world’s first 100% industrial, multi-modal airport.
