Sundance Square Plaza designs unveiled
Posted Dec. 12, 2012
Additional artist renderings and plans recently were unveiled from The Sundance Square Plaza project, revealing a little more about the effort to finally put the "square" in Sundance Square.
Features revealed in the designs include a two-level stage, which will anchor the plaza on the west side and offer permanent stage lighting and audiovisual equipment. The plaza also enhances the existing Chisholm Trail mural with an interactive fountain at its base, containing 216 jets capable of shooting water 6 feet high.
Design for the one-acre plaza— bounded by Third and Fourth streets and Houston and Commerce streets—was approved by the Downtown Design Review Board in last week. Construction is expected to be completed in fall 2013.
The plaza project, started in May 2012, brings three new buildings to the heart of downtown Fort Worth on the site of former parking lots. Two buildings—The Westbrook on the west and The Commerce on the east—will be office buildings with street-level space for shops and restaurants. The third building, The Cassidy, will have six penthouse condominiums.
