Three Class A buildings and a public plaza will make Sundance Square better than ever.
We're adding three Class A buildings with plenty of space for offices, stores, and restaurants. Plus a spectacular new gathering place: the Sundance Square plaza. Construction is now underway, with openings in 2013 and 2014.
Sundance Square Plaza
The new centerpiece of downtown Fort Worth! The Sundance Square plaza will be a vibrant, engaging space that can host a huge variety of events while meeting the everyday needs of workers, residents, and tourists. The permanent, multi-purpose stage can be configured for large and small concerts or movies. Beautiful, decorative water fountains will feature ever-changing waterfalls and cascades. Four giant umbrellas covering more than 6,400 feet will provide shade by day and a gorgeous light display at night. The 55,000-square foot space will also feature a multi-purpose pavilion, bicycle racks, seating, and gorgeous landscaping.
The Westbrook - 425 Houston Street
This six-story, 93,000-square-foot building is named after the Westbrook Hotel, one of the grandest in Fort Worth's history. The handsome facade will feature a mix of granite, limestone, brick, and decorative aluminum, with a stunning clock tower at the top. This building will open in October 2013. Taco Diner will have a 3,000 SF restaurant with patio seating facing into the plaza and Starbucks Coffee Company will move from its current location on Houston Street to the northeast corner of The Westbrook.
The Commerce Building – 420 Commerce Street
Five stories tall with more than 83,000 square feet, the Commerce Building is broken into three distinct parts, including a center facade featuring four-story, high-arched brick window bays. This building will open in October 2013. Del Frisco's Grill will have a 9,000 SF two story restaurant with outdoor seating on the plaza and restaurateur Shannon Wynne will open Bird Cafe with more than 8,700 SF of indoor and outdoor dining space.
The Cassidy – 407 Throckmorton Street
At 99,000 square feet, The Cassidy is the largest of the three new buildings. The six-story structure will be L-shaped, with retail and restaurants on the ground floor and luxury apartments on the top floor.
Sundance Square's new plaza
This is sure to become the premier public outdoor gathering space in downtown Fort Worth. The plaza will be extremely flexible, designed to accommodate everything from large annual events to the everyday needs of workers, residents, and tourists.
The Biggest Comic Strip in Texas
Our construction zone features more than cranes, backhoes, and trucks. The barriers surrounding the construction site boast "The Biggest Comic Strip in Texas."
It stars the Sundance Kid, who magically travels through time to present-day Sundance Square and explores our multi-faceted downtown district, often reacting in humorous ways. The comic features 36 panels, each measuring 16 feet wide by 7 feet tall, totaling more than 4,000 square feet. We invite you to come see it for yourself!
The team for the project included Sundance Square’s marketing department led by Tracy Gilmour; writer, Brian Pierce; illustrator, Kerry Gammill; art director, Jimmy Mowry; and production by Britten, Inc.

Sundance Square announced Fort Worth law firm, Shannon, Gracey, Ratliff & Miller, LLP has signed a lease for more than 36,000 square feet in the five-story Commerce Building, currently under construction at 420 Commerce Street.
