Historic Coca-Cola building on Fort Worth’s South Side being converted into apartments
Fort Worth, Texas, March 4, 2015 – Construction has commenced on Highpoint on South Main, a 227-unit, 400,000-square foot apartment development in Fort Worth’s Near Southside neighborhood, just south of downtown. The general contractor, Addison-based multi-family builder KWA Construction, recently began demolition on the site of the historic Coca-Cola Building, which is being preserved and incorporated into the six-story project. Developer Seneca Investment Company hired Richardson-based architecture firm N.T.S. Architects and Planners to highlight and maintain the historic character of the property and surrounding area.
“Everyone involved in Highpoint on South Main is taking great effort to preserve the Coca-Cola Building, while bringing much-needed new amenities and improvements to Fort Worth’s south side,” said Keller Webster, President of KWA Construction.
Fort Worth’s Near Southside neighborhood is currently undergoing significant changes and revitalization efforts. Along with Highpoint on South Main, a number of other residential and commercial construction and revitalization projects are underway, including Victory Medical Center, a $90-million, high-end surgical hospital expected to open in August 2015.
Located at 650 S. Main Street, across from Victory Medical Center, Highpoint on South Main will feature an exterior courtyard and pool area at the center of the development. Additionally, additional improvements are being made to public land surrounding the development, including streetscapes and other walkable- and bike-friendly amenities.
