Welcome back to “On the Agenda,” a column from the Dallas Business Journal that digs into city and county agendas and additional public meeting documents tied to North Texas to scout out new developments, corporate relocations, economic incentives and other items that impact the business community.

A build-for-rent project with 300 units will soon break ground in southeast Fort Worth.

Located east of Willow Springs Road and north of State Highway 81, the project will take place on a roughly 79-acre parcel. The development will go before the Fort Worth Zoning Commission during its meeting on Wednesday. 

The development will feature detached cottage style dwellings with shared greenspace and parking for each unit. The units will come with two to three bedrooms apiece, according to city documents.

Once completed, the neighborhood will come with neighborhood pools, playgrounds, a community center, tennis courts, basketball courts and volleyball courts. The site will also feature a dog park. 

The documents list the ownership as Rick Farnoush and the applicant as Dyer Engineering. The applicant has requested a zoning change from light industrial to zoning including low-density multifamily, and staff has recommended approval. 

Additional cases of import are listed below.
