Entrance of So 7

First of all a grammar lesson: It’s So 7 and it’s pronounced “So Seven.”

There’s no period after the “o.” It’s not “South Seven” or “South of Seventh.”  It’s simply So 7.  Dallas has its quirky areas and nicknames, and Fort Worth has the same.

Welcome to So 7

Built in 2007 before the lauded West 7th Street Corridor between Downtown Fort Worth and the Museum District was much to cheer about, So 7 Townhomes have really come into their own.

That was after the Big One ripped through Cowtown on March 28, 2000. It pretty much destroyed this area.  Buildings were abandoned.  Shops and restaurants were sparse.  There was no urban living.

If an F3 tornado hadn’t ripped through West 7th Street would we have a thriving urban community today?
