Waterside Development Offers Whole Foods, New Restaurants And Temporary Housing

Things are changing in southwest Fort Worth, and a new development promises to bring a walkable area with a sense of community to a part of town that now has a distinctly suburban feel. Can the Waterside development provide all it promises?

From all indications, the Waterside development on Bryant Irvin is delivering on its promises. With great views of the Trinity River from its apartment homes, a carefully curated array of food and shops as well as a location on the Trinity Trails, it’s a valuable addition to Fort Worth – no matter what part of our city you call home.

Getting To Know Waterside

Waterside serves several purposes. First, it will soon be a destination for people from across the city since it will be home to Fort Worth’s first Whole Foods Market, scheduled to open in mid-October. The development also features an REI sporting good store, the first business to open there, and an Aaron Brothers Art and Framing– plus a much-needed parking garage.

Smaller shops include the kitchenware store Sur la Table, a CycleBar fitness facility, Katour’s hair salon and a lash salon, among other things. There will also soon be an urgent care office and restaurants that include the already-open Blaze Pizza and Tokyo Joe’s as well as more restaurants to come. In all, there will be more than 175,000 square feet and restaurants.

Behind that, a public event space called The Grove will tie the retail to the residential. About 800 units of housing – including townhomes and apartments – will provide some of the clients for all that retail. There will also be more than 200,000 square feet of office space. And much of the development is already completed.

All that housing will be a perfect place to live for those moving to Fort Worth who can’t find the right home right away. Apartments and townhomes can make a great place to live for a few months or even a couple years while you build or locate the right home – and these are ideally situated near the new Chisholm Trail Parkway, Hulen Mall and other existing amenities.

Big Changes For Bryant Irvin

Just a few years ago, most Fort Worth residents thought of Bryant Irvin only as a convenient alternative to always-congested Hulen Street. Now, the new toll road has taken the burden off Bryant Irvin and Hulen, allowing for a massive development like this one. And just up the road, the Clearfork development is already showing real progress too.

Waterside developers promise a unique combination of retail, residential and office space with a built-in public event space. We’ll see how unique it is when it’s completed, but the size and the scope of the project is clear already. It’s a big deal for southwest Fort Worth. And it could become a big part of your life.
