Built in 1931, the Texas and Pacific building has tons of ironwork and charm, which made it a perfect candidate for redevelopment.
I love redeveloped historic properties, and it turns out Curbed’s Chris Berger and I share that passion. He’s covered some really interesting buildings, including a jail-turned-luxury-apartment-building! But one of the more recent focuses of his Past Lives column is the Texas and Pacific Lofts in Fort Worth, which is pretty incredible in its own right.
This stunner, which was originally constructed in 1931 and redeveloped by Wood Partners in 2006, was — gasp! — wrecking ball fodder at one time! It was saved, obviously, and now has a spot on the National Register of Historic Places.
If you want to find you’re own spot in this lovely building, which has its own tavern and is super close to commuter rail, there are a few for sale, including this penthouse-level loft for just $158,900.
