About Architecture in Fort Worth

An award-winning website on the architecture in 13th Largest City in the U.S.


This web site lists the major buildings in Fort Worth within each area of the city. Their names, addresses, the year they were built, and their historical designations will be listed. To see full information and photographs, please follow the links on each building.  Photographs on the individual buildings can be enlarged by clicking them. Photographs that are dated indicate that due to new construction, this view is now not available.

In the 2000 Census, Fort Worth had a population of 534,694.  The 2010 Census showed that the city had grown by 206,512 people, giving us 741,206 people.  Over the last 10 years, Fort Worth was one of the fastest growing large U.S. cities. The Official 2020 Census shows us with 918,915 people.

Fort Worth has preserved many of its downtown buildings constructed between 1880 and 1930.  Class "A" Downtown office occupancy rates are about 98%.   The best way to view these buildings throughout the city is by car; however, the best way to see downtown is on foot. Most of the structures in downtown are in close proximity to each other; however, some are on the fringes of downtown and can be seen by automobile. Downtown Fort Worth can be accessed by the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) and by TEXRail. It is navigable by bus if you arrive by either train. Many lots and parking garages in the north end of downtown offer free parking in the evenings and on weekends. All metered street parking is free during the same time period.
