Simply put, it’s so damned exciting living in Fort Worth now. Growth is insane, lively development or redevelopment can be found in any direction one looks, and a lot of young, vigorous, and creative talent is steering much of it.
HGC Residential Development was born in 2000 and has flourished and grown in a period in which the population of Fort Worth has increased by 60 percent. We’ve had periods of dizzying growth and prosperity in North Texas before, but often it seems as if these were eras of loss and missed opportunities. Think: The 1980s and the damage done to older neighborhoods, particularly Highland Park and Oak Lawn, when many a proud, carefully conceived structure was leveled and replaced with modish, but generic building stock. Much of residential construction then strived for grandeur and a vaguely remembered past — and missed the mark.
