The National Trust for Historic Preservation has put the Fort Worth Stockyards on its annual list of America's 11 most endangered historic places. As the last standing stockyards in the United States, dating back to 1887, It is one of the most significant sites in Texas, representing the cattle and livestock industry. In 2014 the Fort Worth City Council approved a $175 million Stockyards Redevelopment  - a development incentive from the city to bring more hotels, residences, offices and other venues to the Stockyards.

VISION 20/20 is a proactive evolution plan for the district with architectural, cultural and natural heritage preservation a foremost priority and will be a major contributor to the overall transformation of Fort Worth, Texas into a world class city. 

Incorporating land based entertainment - a theme indicative to the historical aspect of the Ft Worth Stockyards - adheres to the specific standards and guidelines set forth by the Stockyards Form Based Code District and also protects Fort Worth’s heritage through guided urban development.

The character and design plan will include period infill developed structures that are unique and custom site-specific designs that will be made to blend seamlessly with the FWSHD existing historic architecture composed of the Mission Revival / Spanish Revival style set between the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. 

We currently seek to approach existing redevelopment group Majestic Realty and The Hickman Family who owns 70 acres in the FWS to discuss synergistic opportunities.
