Fort Worth Future City Hall

The City of Fort Worth has embarked on an initiative to reimagine its City Hall in order to provide enhanced services for the residents of Fort Worth. In January 2021, the City closed on the former Pier 1 Imports headquarters building, located at 100 Energy Way. The building has been a staple of the Fort Worth downtown landscape since 2004 and provides the City with the ability to consolidate services into a building that has room for growth. Key points of the project are listed below: 

  • The program looks to consolidate City staff and functions from 13 other City buildings in proximity to the downtown district into the Future City Hall
  • The Future City Hall project will involve the redesign and renovation of many floors within the building with the goal to create a welcoming workplace and municipal center for public services
  • Other areas of focus will include new construction of City Council Chambers, building infrastructure upgrades, as well as enhanced technology, security, and AV solutions for the building. The City Council Chamber project expects to host the first council meeting in the new facility in the Fall of 2024.
      • The team has worked with the community, City leadership, community groups, and City staff to bring forth the design concepts show below, which are still under review
      • The groundbreaking for this facility took place in September of 2022.
  • The City is looking to embrace “Shared Daylight” concepts in the building in tandem with flexible hybrid floor plans and modern workstations;  accommodating nearly double the occupants than previous tenants and providing flexibility for growth for the next 50 years
  • The project will be completed in a phased approach with construction beginning in June 2023 and running through final move-ins in the third quarter of 2024. 

Successful delivery of the project is contingent on timely, cost-effective and quality expectations aligned with the goals and principles listed below:
