Fort Worth (Tarrant County) — KRS Realty Advisors, a Kerby Smith company, purchased and has commenced renovations on two buildings near the Fort Worth Stockyards.
The two structures will provide about 12,000 square feet of office and retail space once the renovations are done.
The building at 2341 N. Main Street (see architectural rendering below) will feature 7,000 square feet of divisible space, ideal for use as a restaurant, café, bar or office. This is the Leggett & Platt Building, originally constructed in 1974. There is design flexibility for a drive thru or outdoor seating area.

The second building, 111 Northwest 24th Street, is adjacent to the first and is considered a historic structure; the PSP Professional Services building was constructed in 1930. It will offer 4,970 square feet in an open concept complete with mezzanine space.
The two lots front Northwest 24th Street between North Main and Ellis Avenue and share a surface parking lot that occupies the south half of the city block.
Both locations are within convenient access to retail shops and restaurants in the stockyards district.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the resurgence of the historic Fort Worth Stockyards. There are few places that offer such rich history, whil so alive and relevant today,” said Kerby Smith, principal, KRS Realty.
Stream Realty Partners will handle leasing for KRS Realty through agents Tyler Maner, vice president, and Cullen Donohue, senior associate.
“It’s a privilege to be a part of an exciting project near the heart of the Stockyards,” Maner said. “We look forward to seeing how these properties come together to experience a rebirth in one of the most trafficked areas in Fort Worth.”
