Cadence McShane Construction Company is pleased to announce the completion of Broadway Chapter, a new 242-unit multifamily development built on behalf of CRG Real Estate Solutions. Located at 401 Hemphill Street in the Near Southside District of Fort Worth, this development is walking distance from downtown.
Designed by Lamar Johnson Collaborative, this wood-framed wrap structure occupies the entire two-acre site, squeezing in every amenity possible. The five-story complex features 4,500 square feet of common space. This includes a state-of-the-art fitness studio, a coffee bar, a library, a lounge, and Zoom rooms. Outside, amenities include an infinity edge pool with in-pool loungers, a recreational area, a dog run, outdoor grilling areas, a fire pit, and a sun deck.
The 320,000-square-foot complex offers units in studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom configurations, including 18 lofts that boast 20-foot ceilings. Each unit features open floor plans with expansive views of downtown through oversized windows. Stainless steel appliances, wood-style plank flooring, and private balconies come standard in each apartment.
Construction also included a 98,000-square-foot pre-cast parking garage with 277 spaces. On the southern exterior of the parking garage, local artist, Eric “Drigo” Rodriguez, who was handpicked through a community-led selection process, painted a vibrant 5,000-square-foot mural. The unique and eye-catching mural is titled “Cosmic Journey”.
With record amounts of rainfall, and material shortages and delays caused by COVID-19, the schedule faced a six-month delay in the delivery of the parking garage. The Cadence McShane team re-sequenced the work to start with the north section of the building, and then erected the parking garage once materials became available, eventually piecing the two together. Despite these challenges, construction was impressively completed ahead of the original schedule.
“We are proud of our delivery of this development and the obstacles that we have overcome to get here,” remarked Will Hodges, President of Cadence McShane. “Broadway Chapter will serve as another example of our relentless service and determination to deliver the highest quality projects.”
JJ Smith, Managing Partner at CRG, commented – “Our expectations were exceeded from beginning to end. Delivering a project ahead of schedule and on budget while overcoming a pandemic and global supply chain crisis is a clear testament to how well the team performed. We already look forward to the next opportunity to put shovels in the ground with the Cadence McShane team.”
