In the mid-2000s, the area of Fort Worth referred to as the Medical District went through a dramatic change. Situated south of Interstate 30, north of the Fairmount neighborhood, bordered by 8th Avenue to Rosedale Avenue, this soon became known as the Near Southside.

At the time there were medical offices, hospitals, and a smattering of other businesses … not many restaurants, nightlife, and certainly not any urban housing options.

May Street ext

by Eric Prokesh

What we have here: two contemporary buildings of three floors each with four ground floor units and eight two story units above, totaling twelve condominiums. They sport a modern attitude that blends happily with three of Magnolia Street’s most popular restaurants and watering holes, nesting in the burgeoning and expanding Medical District and abutting the historical Fairmount neighborhood. The units are about 1250 to 1300 square feet, sporting two bedrooms and two to three baths. Each has a covered parking space. Pricing starts at $265,000.

Financing is freaky friendly, with a down payment so minimal you could practically find it in your piggy bank.

205 Pecan front

There’s a special place in my heart for 1990s contemporary architecture. Fun lines and colors, interesting shapes, it’s all really whimsical like this townhome at 205 Pecan Street near downtown Fort Worth’s Sundance Square. You might think that, inside, you’ll see a lot of black laquer furniture and Mondrian look-alike paintings, sleek stainless steel and exposed concrete and brick.

Boy are you in for a trip!

2600 W 7th ST #2738 Montgomery Plaza building

That’s right, Fort Worth isn’t all huge houses, hilly neighborhoods, and epic estates. There are some great high rise and loft homes, too, and this unit inside the Montgomery Plaza building is a perfect example. Neon-topped and a visual beacon not unlike Dallas’ own South Side building, this cool conversion was once an industrial property. Now it’s full of sexy, luxurious lofts just like Unit No. 2738.

Jump to see inside!
