This is the sixth time the Texas & Pacific Warehouse building has been placed on HFW’s Most Endangered Places list. The 1930-31 T&P Warehouse building reflects Fort Worth’s enviable railroad heritage and plays a dominant role in the revitalization of Lancaster Avenue.

Historic Fort Worth, Inc. is aware of a project planned for the T&P Warehouse building, but given the downturn in the economy and the building’s size, this building joins other large-scaled rehabilitation projects at risk. Fortunately, the T&P Warehouse building is already listed in the National Register of Historic Places, is designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark and is designated a Highly-Significant Endangered Landmark of the City of Fort Worth. These designations qualify the project for the maximum level of governmental incentives available to rehabilitate a historic building.

If this project fails, could a firm like Williams Jackson Ewing transform Fort Worth’s Texas & Pacific Warehouse Building? The following link is to some of their projects, including Grand Central Terminal in New York:
