Fort Worth ( Tarrant County) — KWA Construction has announced the recent top-out of The Cooper, a multifamily development located in the Near Southside neighborhood in Fort Worth’s medical district.

Dallas-based developer Lang Partners, a multifamily real estate development firm, selected KWA to build the 386,124-square foot apartment complex.
Intricately designed by a GFF architectural team, The Cooper is being constructed on two separate city blocks between West Rosedale and West Oleander Streets. A sky-bridge crossing above Washington Avenue connects the tenants in the center.
Washington Avenue. Fashioned at the third and fourth levels, The Cooper’s sky-bridge will connect the two five-story wood frame buildings, which are themselves wrapped around a six-level concrete parking garage.
Lang Partners selected KWA to build The Cooper after a successful completion of phase one, The Monarch,” a development of very similar scale and massing that is five blocks to the west. It also has a sky-bridge.
“This is a testament to our working relationship with them and our shared goal to create quality, income-producing homes,” said Brian Webster, KWA’s president. “With unique design features, this residential community is fully amenitized to the demands of today’s modern residents.
“Located conveniently near one of the area’s most important employment districts, these luxury apartments will be an ideal option for those working and serving in the neighborhood.”
The Cooper will have 390 units in studio, townhome, mezzanine and one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans.
The sky-bridge itself will house townhome and one-bedroom spaces while also providing 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.
The Cooper is expected to be complete in Fall of 2020.
