Construction crews and lane closures have become a common sight in and around downtown Fort Worth, and with several projects slated for completion in the next two years, they’ll be around a while longer.

The larger projects are developments offering housing alongside retail, restaurants or hotels — in some cases all three.

Here are six projects expected to be complete within the next two years.

The Van Zandt, at 2816 West Seventh St., is expected to open in summer 2023. Goldenrod Companies, an Omaha-based commercial real estate development and investment management firm, announced the plans earlier this year.

  • 147-unit apartment complex
  • 99,400 square feet of office space
  • 11,600 square feet of retail space

THE CRESCENT FORT WORTH

With towering cranes between Camp Bowie and West Seventh Street, across from the Kimbell Art Museum, the construction site of The Crescent is hard to miss. Fort Worth-based Crescent Real Estate LLC broke ground on the development in September 2021.

An estimated completion date is for mid 2023.

  • 200-key luxury hotel that will include a restaurant, rooftop lounge and ballroom/meeting space
  • 168,000 square feet of office space
  • 167-unit luxury apartment complex

BOWIE HOUSE HOTEL

Construction on the Bowie House Hotel, in the 3700 block of Camp Bowie Boulevard, started this year. The four- story boutique hotel will include restaurants, a bar, spa, and fitness center. Townhomes are also included in the project by Fort Worth-based BOKA Powell.

  • 120-key hotel
  • High-end restaurant
  • 11 townhomes

DECO 969

Nashville-based Southern Land Company broke ground on its luxury high-rise project Deco 969 in October 2021. The 27-story building at 969 Commerce St. will offer luxury rental residences downtown. Deco 969 is expected to be completed in late 2023.

  • 302-unit apartment complex with resort-inspired amenities
  • Eight floors of above-grade parking
  • Retail and restaurant space on the first floor.

HUGHES HOUSE

Groundbreaking on phase one of the Fort Worth Housing Solutions development called Hughes House is set for June and is expected to be substantially completed by the end of 2023.

The Hughes House development is part of a six-phase project offering a total of 1,042 units across six developments, with roughly a quarter being market-rate housing.

Hughes House, at East Rosedale Street and Amanda Avenue, will have 44 market-rate units, with the remaining 166 units for lower-income residents.

  • 210 apartments and townhomes
  • 12,000 square feet of commercial space

1001 UNIVERSITY

Goldenrod Companies purchased property on 1001 University Drive between Morton and Bledsoe Streets for a mixed-use development. The project, on just under thre acres, includes plans for a hotel, apartment units, office and retail space.

Goldenrod Companies plans to complete preliminary design by late 2022.

  • 225 multifamily units
  • 4-star Fort Worth branded hotel
  • 45,000 square feet of office space
