Fort WorthFor those that look for character and history when they seek out a place to lay their head, abodes like the loft we found at the Texas & Pacific Lofts in Fort Worth is a great example of what they can find.

The 12-story building, located at 220-221 West Lancaster Avenue, had its first life as the Texas and Pacific Railway Passenger Terminal and corporate offices. Built in 1930 and designed by Wyatt C. Hedrick (who later merged his Fort Worth firm with Sanguinet & Staats), the terminal and offices featured architectural and design details you expect from the 1930s — Zigzag Moderne Art Deco style with marble floors, metal-inlaid ceilings, nickel and brass fixtures, and terrazzo flooring in places as well.

The building fell dormant as travelers left train travel for air and road travel, but by 1978, it was listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and preservationists lobbied in the 1980s to save it from demolition.

Nowadays, the property has a second life as multifamily housing, with 228 luxury condos and 128 loft homes. The interiors offer the large windows, high ceilings, exposed brick, and exposed ductwork you expect from a loft.

And Unit 8009, a one bedroom, one bath loft, is a prime example, with an open floor plan, a spacious bedroom with wide walk-in closet, and more.

Included in the $1,500 a month rent are the water and HOA fees, which is a boon considering the building boasts amenities like a fitness center, resistance pool, basic internet, cable, a business center, conference center, and 24-hour concierge.

Gale Caveness with Helen Painter Group has the listing.  For more information and photos, click here. To see more about the loft building, click here.
