KWA Construction Breaks Ground on Oleander Apartments in Fort Worth
FORT WORTH, TEXAS — KWA Construction has broken ground on Oleander Apartments, a 327-unit multifamily development located in Fort Worth’s hospital district. Dallas-based developer Lang Partners selected KWA to build the 279,114-square-foot apartment complex. Designed by JHP Architects, the project will be built on two city blocks along West Rosedale and Oleander streets and connected by a bridge over Seventh Avenue. Construction will entail connecting a five-story, wood-frame building via a skybridge to another five-story, wood-frame building wrapped around a six-level parking garage. With plans to be connected on the third and fourth floor levels, the bridge will provide a crossover to the apartments’ garage, clubhouse, pool and other shared amenity areas. Rent will range from $1,100 to $2,800 per month. For the project, Lang Partners has received approval for $1.2 million in funding from the local tax increment finance district for public right-of-way and easement improvements, utility work and streetscape improvements. Oleander Apartments is expected to complete construction in summer 2017.
