Southern Land Co. announced it’s begun infrastructure work for its planned 27-story luxury high-rise apartment tower at 969 Commerce St. in downtown Fort Worth, the city’s first downtown high-rise of rental units.

Southern Land said it expected to break ground this fall on the 302-unit building at 969 Commerce St. and Ninth Street, a site it bought in 2017 from XTO Energy, which sold its downtown portfolio of properties after it announced its sale to ExxonMobil.

The 300,000-square-foot building will include 302 efficiency, one, two, and three bedroom apartments and penthouses, eight floors of above-grade parking, and “resort-inspired amenities,” Southern Land said. It will include retail and restaurant space on the first floor.

“These will be the first luxury high-rise rental residences in downtown Fort Worth, and we could not be more excited to have the off-site work underway,” Tim Downey, founder and CEO of Southern Land, based in Nashville, Tenn., said in a release, referring to the infrastructure work.
