Fort Worth, TX

WT Waggoner Building officially on the market, JLL to facilitate sale

Adjoining surface lot provides opportunity for development in downtown Fort Worth

Fort Worth, ​February 27, 2018 – JLL announced today the firm has been selected to sell the iconic Fort Worth WT Waggoner Building on behalf of XTO Energy Inc. The 20-story office property and adjoining 32,000 square foot surface lot are located in the core of downtown Fort Worth at 810 Houston Street.

Built in 1920, the WT Waggoner Building includes 119,846 square feet of rentable office space and has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1979. With its close proximity to the Fort Worth Convention Center and Sundance Square, the property has abundant dining, shopping and entertainment options nearby.

The building's floor plan configuration allows access to abundant natural light, and the ground level, mezzanine and basement levels will accommodate future bank, retail or amenity space.

The adjacent surface lot currently accommodates 92 parking spaces, but as one of the few remaining undeveloped lots in the core downtown market, provides a rare opportunity for immediate development.

JLL Executive Vice President Ryan Matthews is leading marketing efforts for the property.

"The Waggoner Building is one of the most well-known and recognizable buildings in Fort Worth," said Matthews. "Its position within downtown and its potential for development on the adjoining surface lot create a transformational opportunity for whomever acquires this iconic asset. We are proud to play a role in its transition."

JLL recently announced the successful sale of four of the seven XTO assets in Fort Worth, including the Petroleum Building at 201 West 6th Street.
