February 06, 2019

FORT WORTH, February 6, 2019 – A recent increase of transaction activity and investor interest in historic properties in and around downtown Fort Worth has prompted the sale of the historic Katy Depot, located at 321 E Broadway Avenue in Fort Worth. JLL announced today that the firm has been selected to market and sell the 23,418-square-foot, mixed-use asset.

JLL Executive Vice President Ryan Matthews and Vice President Joel St. John are leading the sales effort on behalf of ownership.

“North Texas is in in the middle of unprecedented growth and Fort Worth has seen its share of investor interest with some of the more well-known and prominent assets changing hands,” said Matthews. “Katy Depot provides a unique historic offering near one of the most vibrant areas of our city; an exceptional opportunity for the right developer or owner occupier looking for creative space.”

The Katy Depot was first designed and constructed as a freight depot in 1909 for the MKT Railroad out of Junction City, Kansas. It is located 2 blocks from the new South Main Corridor and directly across the street from the Bowery at Southside, which is under construction and set for delivery in Spring of 2019. Nearby employers are UT Southwestern, Cook Children’s Healthcare System, Texas Health Resources, Medical City Healthcare and the Williamson-Dickie Headquarters.
