By next summer, the West 7th District will become an entertainment playground where people can work, live, and play — thanks to The Van Zandt project. The area is already a hotspot for happy hours, late-night bites, and walkable nightlife, making it a standout Fort Worth neighborhood. This latest project will only add to the area’s appeal.

The project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2023. And that’s not all Goldenrod is working on — just down the street at 1001 University Dr. (between Morton and Bledsoe streets) the developer is working on a separate project that will include a hotel, apartment units, and office and retail space. That project will begin in 2024.
