of the Panther Island Project.

The City of Fort Worth’s Comprehensive Plan calls for sustainable growth in all areas in close proximity to downtown Fort Worth. The district due north of downtown, Panther Island, has been rezoned by the City of Fort Worth to provide a mixed-used district of greater density. The district is impacted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers flood control project; however, no federal money is being used to accomplish the City’s sustainable growth goals for the district.

Phase 1 development in the interior of Panther Island is happening NOW. The development of Phase 1 can happen with or without the bypass channel and associated infrastructure being built.

Phase 1 Mixed-Use Development
Phase 1 - Park System
Phase 1 - Fixed Transit Line
Phase 1 - Roundabouts
Phase 1 - Riverwalk

MIXED-USE DEVELOPMENT

Panther Island zoning standards were put in place to encourage the responsible, sustainable development of over three million square feet of mixed-use neighborhoods for over 10,000 residential units.

PARK SYSTEM

Panther Island has plans for a total of seven new parks, they will be known as The Parks of Panther Island. The development of the parks system will be located along the future site of the bypass channel.

MODERN ROUNDABOUTS

The use of modern roundabouts on Panther Island will provide safer roads by cutting average speed and delay time while handling more traffic. They also create a positive environment for vertical development.

RIVERWALK

A 33-acre lake will be a focal point for Panther Island. A large public boardwalk will surround the lake, making it the perfect place for recreation on the river. Additionally, winding through the island will be over twelve miles of flowing canals and continuous public walkways. Creating the ability to live, work and play next to the water.

FIXED TRANSIT LINE

A fixed line will connect Panther Island to downtown establishing smart access from home to the Central Business District thereby reducing the number of cars on the road creating less mobile emissions and better air quality. Inside the island a “circulator” line around the perimeter of Panther Island will connect each development node and serve residents and visitors to Panther Island.

Phase 2 development of Panther Island can occur once USACE has completed the bypass channel and associated infrastructure. Upon completion of the flood infrastructure and decommission of the existing levee system it will open up additional land for private development.

THE TRINITY RIVER PROMENADE

Made up of a series of unique urban parks connecting lakes, canals and marinas—all connected by a network of trails and new pedestrian bridges —the Promenade is designed to improve connectivity along the river.

PROMENADE FEATURES: Kayak launch pads, Kayak / watercraft storage, Riverbanks lined with shade trees, 12 ft-wide waterside paths, Water taxi landings, and more on the way.

TOWN LAKE & MARINA

The 33-acre town lake expansion on Panther Island will allow for pedestrian powered water activity as well as a marina for boat parking.

HOUSEBOAT DISTRICT

The levees coming down gives you the ability to not just live next to the water but on the water. The houseboat district brings the urban neighborhood of Panther Island to the Trinity River.

SIGNATURE PEDESTRIAN BRIDGES

To ensure continuous pedestrian access throughout Panther Island a series of pedestrian bridges will stretch the bypass channel allowing the trails on the island connect to 72 mile system throughout the city.
