The 100-year-old Worth Heights grain silos may be demolished

A demolition permit has been issued for part of the site, and four other permits could be on the way.

Between 1924 and 1926, the Fort Worth Elevator & Warehouse was constructed at 3700 Alice St., along the then-Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Railroad tracks. In the 1940s, smaller office buildings were added the Worth Heights site.

That was then; this is now.

The silos have not been in use for over two decades, and in March, the city’s Building Standards Commission declared the grain silos to be “substandard and hazardous.” Now, a demolition permit has been issued for one part of the 2.9-acre site, with four other permits pending.

If fully approved, the demolition would be classifed as a hazardous demolition. There is only a set amount of money currently allocated in the 2025 city budget for hazardous demolitions, so additional money would need to be found to complete the full demolition within ’25.
