Construction of Fort Worth’s Oleander Apartments Begins

KWA Construction hired by Lang Partners to build multifamily project in the hospital district.

Construction is underway at Oleander Apartments, a 327-unit multifamily development located in the south side neighborhood in Fort Worth’s hospital district. Dallas-based developer Lang Partners selected KWA Construction, a leading general contractor specializing in multifamily developments, to build the 279,114-square foot apartment complex. Intricately designed by JHP Architects, the project is to be built on two separate city blocks, West Rosedale and Oleander Streets, and connected by a bridge over Seventh Avenue.

“The construction of Lang Partners’ Oleander Apartments will be transformational for the Medical District due to the impressive design and the additional option of high-quality housing for those working and serving in the neighborhood, as well as those looking to be near the Magnolia Entertainment District,” said Brian Webster, Executive Vice President of KWA Construction.

KWA will lead the construction that will entail connecting a five-story wood frame building via a sky-bridge to another five-story wood frame building wrapped around a six level concrete parking garage. With plans to be connected on the third and fourth floor levels, the bridge will provide a crossover to the apartments’ garage, clubhouse, pool and other shared high-quality, amenity areas. The neighborhood, besides providing a vast amount of high-income employment, offers many walkable dining and entertainment options. Rent will range from $1,100-$2,800 a month.

For the project, Lang Partners has received approval for $1.2 million in funding from the tax increment finance district, also for public right-of-way and easement improvements, utility work and streetscape improvements.

Oleander Apartments is expected to complete construction in Summer of 2017.
