Forth Worth is no longer the distant cousin to Dallas. The city is its own and it rivals anything its more famous neighbor is doing. It’s also on of the hottest places to live in Texas, especially in these neighborhoods.
Meadows West/River Park
The Trinity River area is booming. New businesses and residences are going up almost weekly, especially in the Meadows West/River Park area. Meadows West and River Park are adding hotels and amenities, and newly built family-sized homes starting around $400,000. Also, the Waterside will be a big draw once it’s built. This is a 63-acre, mixed-used development that will be anchored a Whole Foods and a high-end hotel.
If you’re looking for old-school charm, this neighborhood of Craftsman-style homes dating back to the late 1800s is about as charming (and sought-after) as you can get. Fairmount is a genuine revitalization success story that is attracting families and professionals who want the charm of an old-fashioned neighborhood within walking distance of downtown.
Texas Christian University has a beautiful campus. And it’s spent millions keeping it that way. Well, the neighbors noticed, and people wanting to live in Fort Worth’s most genuinely lovely neighborhoods are aching to get into the beautiful homes surrounding TCU. Life in 76109 can bee pricey, of course, but starter homes are still in the lower/mid-$300,000 range.
The opening of the Chisholm Trail Parkway has opened up access between this upcoming neighborhood and downtown Fort Worth. As the toll road builds, so do the neighborhoods in Mira Vista, and it may genuinely be the best investment place in town.
