Welcome to Downtown Fort Worth

This isn’t just the pulsing heart of the city; it’s also one of the safest, cleanest, most livable urban centers in the U.S. Downtown Fort Worth is centered around Sundance Square, a vibrant plaza and 35-block entertainment district where cowboy boots and black-tie dress are equally appropriate.

The juxtaposition of restored historic buildings and gleaming modern skyscrapers augments this iconoclastic appeal. Residents will find an extremely walkable neighborhood that’s packed with fashionable restaurants, shops, performance venues, and lovely green spaces.

The Scene

High-rise living and an energetic buzz of people, businesses, and infinite possibilities. Sundance Square was named after the Sundance Kid and the Wild Bunch, Butch Cassidy’s notorious gang of outlaws who visited here in the late 1800s. A Wild West spirit of freedom still saturates the neighborhood, infusing it with a heady sense of opportunity—and the feeling that anything can happen.

With a dense collection of residences and urban amenities, Downtown Fort Worth is a hotbed of social activity. This makes it easy to meet new people and immerse yourself in the cultural life of the city.

The Lifestyle

Carefree sophistication and social excitement in a pedestrian-friendly urban oasis. Downtown is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in Fort Worth. Stroll to sushi bars and sidewalk cafes, comedy shows and symphony performances, chic boutiques, and big national retailers. There are theaters, art galleries, and more than a dozen local parks. You can also ride or bike to Trinity Trails when you feel like getting out of the city.

Downtown’s dynamic lifestyle appeals to working professionals, entrepreneurs, and movers and shakers of all stripes. Empty-nesters also like the easygoing lifestyle and convenient access to amenities.

Sundance Square is an icon of urban living, a heralded gathering place with dancing fountains, giant umbrellas, and outdoor eateries.
