Please visit the first post of this blog, and then continue to subsequent posts from there.
Last week we explored the newest openned intrsection of the CTP at Edwards Ranch Road.
Construction update: I just received this update from North Texas Tollway Authority

University Drive from Vickery Boulevard to West Rosedale Street in Fort Worth will be closed nightly from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. through the morning of Sunday, Aug. 3. The closures are needed for work on NTTA’s Chisholm Trail Parkway.
After the Sunday morning closure, northbound University Drive, from Old University Drive and Vickery Boulevard, will be reduced from three to two lanes. For more information on both traffic activities, click here or the banners below.
The Chisholm Trail Parkway runs parallel to and between Bryant Irving and Hulen street through Fort Worth, but how do you access it from those streets? They do not intersect, in fact the CTP acctually overpasses Hulen at Vickery . Last week I mentioned that you can access CTP from Hulen by taking Clearfork Main west to Edwards Ranch where there is an onramp. But you can also take Bellaire to Arborlawn if you are heading South on Hulen, or just take Arborlawn if you are heading north on Hulen. You can acces CTP From Bryant Irvin from either Edwards Ranch or Arborlawn. Arborlawn is the next intersection we will explore on the trail.
As shown on the map, Arborlawn starts at Bryant Ivrvin and goes east until it crosses the CTP, then it turns south. Turning east on Bellaire will take you north to Hulen. If you continue on Arborlawn, you will turn back east toward Hulan, where they itersect further south than Arborlawn. If you exit CTP south at Arborlawn, you can take the frontage road through the Cityview shopping area all the way to Hulen Mall and Overton Ridge. (you can avoid tolls if you just access the frontage road from Bryant Irvin!) This will save you a lot of time by avoiding surface streets. It will take you to the Lowes/Best Buy shopping center. This is also how you access the I20/820 util the direct connection is complete. Arborlawn would be the exit to access Fort Worth Country Day School on Bryant Irvin or Academy of Fine Arts on Hulen as well.
There is not much in the way of residential at Arborlawn between Bryant Irvin and Hulen, but there is a new development coming to the area as well ( see previous post which includes the new Clearkfork development coming soon). Tradmark Property is planning a master planned development called Waterside.
It will be a walkable mixed use district. It will include the Grove, a signature public space featuring several heritage trees, multiple outdoor seating venues, hi-tech amenities, children and adult play areas and much more.
Whole Foods Market will open a 45,000 SF store, the first in Fort Worth, which will include features unique to Waterside and tailored to the local community. Plans for Waterside include 200,000 SF of retail space and riverside restaurants, 20-30 acres of multi-family and townhomes, 150,000 SF of office space, and a signature hotel site. Sounds like San Antonio River Walk, doesn't it? Wow, how exciting for Fort Worth, and to think, the Trail will run right past it!
Theree are several residential neighborhoods on either side of Hulen and Bryant Irvin that are accessable by the Parkway. To the East of Hulen, between Clearfork and the I-20/820 loop, take Arborlawn to Bellaire and you will find the Bellaire and Tanglewood subdivisions of the highly desirable TCU area. These neighborhoods include:
Overton Crest customs with 1+ acre lots
Edwards Ranch Riverhills custom estates
Westcliff Architect Emery Young custom with acre + lots
Overton Woods townhome gated
Willow Lake North
Overton Crest custom
Overton Park colonial estates
Hulen Park Townhome
Royale Orleans South Condo
Fountain Royale Orleans W condo
In these neighborhoods you will find custom homes anywhere from custome colonial homes on 1+ acre lost for over a million, to condos and townhomes for under 100k. Search homes in this area
Arborlawn does not continue west of Bryant Irvin, but if you go south the next intersection is Bellair and you can take this west to a small neighborhood in Benbrook. This neighborhood includes:
Country Day Estates
Mont Del Estates
This neighborhood features homes built in the 1980's under 400k Search these neibgborhoods in Benbrook
