Panther Island - Vision 2.0

Since the Trinity Uptown Plan (now Panther Island) was adopted by the City of Fort Worth in 2004, the development and community landscape has changed, with Fort Worth’s population and economy booming.
Seeing this as an opportunity, an unprecedented partnership of public and nonprofit entities have engaged a multidisciplinary consulting team, lead by HR&A, to update the vision and strategy for Panther Island.

Over the course of 2023, the consultant team will reignite a community-led vision for Panther Island and strategy for advancing its redevelopment, equipping local leadership with the tools to advance planning and development based on current community, economic, and market conditions.
