Anthracite Realty Partners purchased the property from the Fort Worth Club in 2014.  Covering three-quarters of a block between Taylor and Lamar streets, the building will be designed by Bennett Benner Partners with the general contractor being Balfour Beatty Construction.  Once completed, the tower will be the seventh-tallest in Fort Worth.

Subcontractors interested in bidding on this project are encouraged to consider utilizing cloud-based project management software as a tool to track field activities via iPads, phones or other tablets. Streamlining communication between the field and office through the use of mobile devices and cloud-based project management has proven to increase efficiencies and optimize profits on large construction projects.
