The Burnett Lofts project, 601 W 13th St., is a 245-unit mixed-use, residential development facing Lancaster Avenue, including apartments, amenity spaces, restaurant and retail spaces.

The Lancaster TIF 8 Board approved $1.75 million for public improvements of the city easement between Lancaster Avenue and the T&P Terminal on the south end of downtown.

Funding for improvements to the tunnel connecting the terminal to the Trinity Railway Express parking and transit-oriented redevelopment site on Vickery Boulevard was also approved. These improvements will serve TRE and TEXRail riders using the T&P station.

Lancaster Avenue will see significant development in 2019 with the expected construction start of both the Burnett Lofts and Kent & Co. Lofts apartment projects.

Tax Increment Financing District 8 was created to promote development along the Lancaster corridor after the Interstate-30 overhead was demolished and Lancaster Avenue was redesigned as one of the primary gateways to downtown Fort Worth and the Near Southside.
