Butler Place is a 42-acre property that opened in 1939 with 400+ units for low-income residents. It closed in 2020 when the residents were relocated with HUD’s Rental Assistance Demonstration program.
Fort Worth Housing Solutions and its partners proposed to:
- Designate the former Carver-Hamilton Elementary School and two other residential buildings as historic landmarks
- Create a new 6.5-acre amphitheater adjacent to I.M. Terrell Academy
- Financially support the development of a Fort Worth African American museum and cultural center
- Save 1,000 bricks from Butler Place to be used in an on-site public art installation
Next, HUD must remove a federal restriction for Butler Place to move forward as anything other than public housing.
