Evans & Rosedale Redevelopment Project


The Historic Southside and Evans & Rosedale Urban Village is a vibrant district located less than five minutes from Downtown Fort Worth, and 10 minutes away from most attractions in Fort Worth. A former hub of Black commerce, the Historic Southside has housed many of the Fort Worth's (and even the nation's) first black entrepreneurs and is an extremely important part of the city's history.

The City of Fort Worth has invested over $30 million into the area's infrastructure, redevelopment, and planning efforts since the late 1990s.

Now, with the recent termination of the previous developer, the City of Fort Worth is ready to move forward with a new master developer to make the community's vision a reality – developing several parcels of city-owned land to reactivate the commercial corridor on Evans Avenue, while also honoring and celebrating the historic legacy of the surrounding neighborhood.
