Century-old Fort Worth building joins list of landmarks for sale
There’s a lot of history to sell in North Texas.
Three prominent buildings in downtown Dallas recently came on the market.
And now a more than a century old building is available in the central business district of Fort Worth.
The Winfield Place building on 8th Street in downtown Fort Worth has been put up for sale by Transwestern Real Estate Services.
The 101-year-old office building was recently renovated for $ 7 million to convert it into modern office space. The 33,064-square-foot, three-story building was originally built in 1919 as a parking garage.
In 2017, the property was awarded a Conservation Award by Historic Fort Worth Inc. for the renovation.
Part of the iteration was turning the freight elevator into a glass conference room that can be moved between floors.
“Winfield Place offers a rare opportunity to acquire a fully renovated and iconic office building,” said Kirk Kelly of Transwestern. “The property is ideal for an investor or user looking for a plug-and-play office opportunity and is well suited for a single or multiple tenants.”
When the building was built, it was intended to provide parking for the nearby Hotel Texas, now the Hilton Fort Worth.
The downtown Fort Worth landmark connects three historic downtown Dallas properties that are currently on the market.
The iconic Dallas Magnolia Hotel, crowned by the signature flying red horse, was recently put up for sale by its Denver owners.
The Alwalt Building and Purse Building in the historic West End neighborhood of downtown are also for sale.
