Fort Worth - Rail Market
The Fort Worth Rail Market, adjacent to the Intermodal Transportation Center in Downtown Fort Worth, is an excellent example of the adaptive reuse of a historic building to add vitality to a somewhat neglected area. Through a public private partnership between Downtown Fort Worth, Inc., the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (FWTA), and the City of Fort Worth, the long-vacant Santa Fe Northern Warehouse was redeveloped into a public market offering a variety of products to Trinity Railway Express commuters and others. The Rail Market will likely serve as a driver for additional investment in the area and lead to redevelopment of other historic buildings and underutilized properties into residential, entertainment, retail and office uses.
