Architecture of Downtown Fort Worth
This web site will be listing the major buildings in Downtown Fort Worth. Their names, addresses, the year they were built, and the architect who designed them will be listed. Also a description of each building will be included on separate pages. Downtown Fort Worth has become a model for downtown revitalization. In the 2000 Census, Fort Worth had a population of 534,694. In the July 2003 estimates, the population was 585,122 ranking 5th in Texas and 20th in the United States. The January 2006 estimates give the city a population of 661,850. Fort Worth has preserved many of its downtown buildings constructed between 1880 and 1930. Class "A" Downtown office occupancy rates are about 98%.
Montgomery Plaza
Located on 7th Street just west of downtown, the Mission Revival-style building dates to 1928, when it was built by department store chain Montgomery Ward to house its regional retail and mail-order operations. The facility was expanded and remodeled over the years before closing in 2001 after Montgomery Ward went out of business. In March 2000, a 40-year-old distribution center behind the original building was badly damaged by the tornado that swept through Fort Worth and Arlington. The property stood idle until 2003 when Dallas-based Weber & Co. and Kimco Realty purchased the site and launched the Montgomery Plaza development. When completed, the 133,000-square-foot building will have 42 floor plans, designed by Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Swaback Partners. The smaller units start at 807 square feet. All residents will have access to a rooftop amenities deck with a pool, garden and outdoor dining areas, as well as three levels of direct-access parking.
Fort Worth Police & Fire Fighters Memorial Fund
What can we possibly do to show our appreciation to those who have given so much to all of us? Each day, the Peace Officers, Police and Fire Fighters of our community exemplify courage and commitment as they strive to assure a continuing safe environment for our City and its citizens. Usually we are unaware of the time and effort expended by these warriors in preventing crime or property damage. We sometimes take for granted the dedication and valor inherent in these individuals until an unfortunate event occurs, becomes newsworthy, and captures our attention. Yet, each is willing to face danger on a daily basis in order for us to enjoy a peaceful lifestyle. They risk their safety for our safety. While there is a national memorial and several state and city memorials that have risen in years past to pay tribute to the lives of police officers and fire fighters who have fallen in the line of duty, Fort Worth has been unintentionally remiss in fulfilling its mission of expressing, in perpetuity, its appreciation and memory of our fallen heroes. The time has come to formally acknowledge and maintain this long overdue recognition in the creation of the Fort Worth Police and Fire Fighters Memorial. A memorial is much more than an impersonal monument. Behind each name on every memorial there is a story...a story written in courage and lived through sacrifice...a tale of heroism and service. Our site in Trinity Park will be a living memorial and a constant reminder of our dependence upon and appreciation of those who continue to sacrifice their own welfare in favor of ours. The Fort Worth Police and Fire Fighters Memorial Committee endeavors to build a memorial that will speak to our community about our fallen heroes, those "who gave much more than their part." We owe them no less...they gave us so much more.

Trinity River Vision
The Trinity River is a major part of Fort Worth's rich and colorful history. In 1849, an army outpost was established on the banks of the river at the confluence of the West Fork and the Clear Fork, and that convergence anchors our downtown today. The "Master Plan" for the Trinity River is a concept literally decades in the making. Encouraged by community volunteers in the 1980s, developed by urban designers and specialty consultants in the 1990s, and adopted by City Council in 2003, the Trinity River Vision Master Plan encompasses 88 miles of the Trinity River and its greenbelts and tributaries throughout the Fort Worth area. The "vision" has always been to advocate for this natural resource, keeping the river beautiful, accessible, enjoyable, and productive and to make sure it remains a valuable asset for the entire community.
Arts Council of Fort Worth
In 1963 the Arts Council was formed to provide funding and leadership to stimulate and assure the advancement of the arts throughout our community. Today’s Arts Council is a dynamic, multi-faceted, arts agency serving artists, arts organizations and the community with programs that help shape the arts and that have a significant impact on the quality of life in Fort Worth. Arts Council programs address three main areas: funding local arts organizations through a competitive grants program; enhancing the visual environment of the city through commissioning works of public art; and providing affordable and accessible venues for artists and arts organizations, through the management of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. The Arts Council has positioned itself as a leader in the Arts Community by both identifying and addressing the needs of the arts community and of the community at large. Arts Council grants support Fort Worth non-profit arts organizations in four areas: General Operating Support; Neighborhood Arts Programs that bring the arts to underserved areas of our community; Audience Development efforts that target culturally specific populations and younger audiences; and Mini Grants which focus on professional development for organizations with budget of less than $750,000. Funding for Arts Council grants comes from individuals, corporate and foundation donors, as well as the City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County and Texas Commission on the Arts.
Casa Manana Theatre
The dream was brought to life again during the fall of 1957 by the late James H. Snowden, Jr. an oil man and president of the Fort Worth Opera Association, and Melvin O. Dacus, the then-manager of the Fort Worth Opera Association. These two gentlemen proposed to the Fort Worth City Council the formation of a non-profit corporation to build and operate a theatre complex primarily focused on the production of Broadway musicals. The cost would be $500,000. The project was approved by the Fort Worth City Council on January 14, 1958. Construction began two months later, on March 13th. A record-breaking 114 days later, the construction of Casa Mañana Theatre was complete. The new Casa Mañana Theatre was a magnificent fully-enclosed, air-conditioned, aluminum-domed theatre. The house seated 1,805 patrons and introduced audiences to "theatre-in-the-round," a stage configuration that featured a round stage in the center of the theatre, with audiences in seated sections that completely surround the stage. With no backstage area, the actors and stagehands would use the surrounding concourse and aisles to move set pieces, props and other materials on and off-stage. Although this unique feature would limit the size of the productions on-stage, the action was constantly moving from one scene to the next. And with the last row only 36 feet from the edge of the stage, patrons fell in love with the intimate feeling of being in the audience at Casa Mañana Theatre.

An 80-foot diameter Great Dome, artfully painted by Scott and Stuart Gentling, tops the Founders Concert Theater. Two 48-foot tall angels sculpted by Marton Varo from Texas limestone grace the Grand Facade. Since the Hall opened in May 1998, the angels have become preeminent cultural icons of the entire Dallas / Fort Worth metropolitan area. The Hall itself is renowned for its superb acoustics, exceptional sight lines and ambience on level with the great halls of the world. In 2001, the adjacent Maddox-Muse Center officially opened; and with it, the new Van Cliburn Recital Hall and the McDavid Studio.
