    Clear Signs of Improvements in Fort Worth's 'Urban Villages'

    The city of Fort Worth is slowly becoming more urban. That's thanks in large part to the 16 "Urban Villages" going up in the city. (Published Wednesday, June 13, 2018)

    The city of Fort Worth is slowly becoming more urban. That's thanks in large part to the 16 "Urban Villages" going up in the city.

    Fort Worth is billing the villages as a "city within a city."

    That includes the "Six Points" development along Race St. just north of downtown. The urban village is located at the intersection of Race, Riverside and Belknap streets.

    People are really starting to see massive improvements in the area, which include large, upscale apartments.

    Christopher Lee Watts was charged with five counts of murder Monday for the deaths of his wife Shanann Watts and their two daughters Bella and Celeste. Watts had initially pleaded publicly that his wife and daughters had gone missing. Their bodies were discovered on the property of the oil and natural gas company Watts worked for. The D.A. said that it's "too early" to discuss whether prosecutors would seek the death penalty.

    "The Scenic at River East" development has been open for business a little more than a year now. It's where 276 apartments and 23 townhomes overlook the Trinity River downtown.

    Another complex, by the same developer, is under construction in the core of the "Six Points" urban village: "The Union at River East," sits right on Race St.

    Happening around that development is about $5.6 million in improvements in traffic flow, sidewalks and landscaping.

    “We just want to do a redevelopment where people feel great and comfortable to come over here, where they can go shopping on Race St., have dinner, have a peaceful setting to live,” said Kimberly Nowell, community manager of both properties.   

    The "Union at River East" is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.
