Every day is an exercise in discovery in Magnolia Village, quickly becoming known as Fort Worth’s destination for crowd favorites and unexpected delights in an artisan atmosphere. Piquant style, refined and funky fresh, continues drawing new blood to the community. Fervent collaborations abound in coffee shops, lunchtime meetings or the inspired genius of happy hour cocktails; myriad spaces for the stars to align. Roaming a range of award-winning flavor, one finds stalwarts like Benito’s, culinary icons like Ellerbe’s Fine Foods or Nonna Tata, and new kids on the block Stir Crazy Baked Goods. In its delightful abundance, Magnolia Village’s creative urgency grabbed the attention of Frank Kent’s Will Churchill when the company sought a home for their wine bar, Kent & Co in June, 2014. Refreshed by the spirit of reclamation, the company has since acquired another seven properties including the widely-anticipated Heim Barbecue. Enhanced pedestrian activity remains a priority and future improvements encourage similar development throughout surrounding areas. The village optimizes work-live viability with main street appeal alongside structured parking, as well as location central to historic neighborhoods and the medical district – UT Southwestern’s Moncrief Cancer Institute was selected for a 2015 Fort Worth Beautiful Award. Retail, office space, and housing benefit from joint efforts for community improvement found in features like Oleander Walk, Magnolia Green and the Historic homes of Fairmount.
