The long-awaited Panther Island project has been the center of political tensions in Fort Worth for almost two decades. The project will be located near downtown and is estimated to cost over $1 billion. Some are sure it will help our city flourish, while others doubt the project will be worth the price. Join us as we analyze what happens next for Panther Island.
Michael Bennett, CEO of Bennett Partners, will serve as moderator for this challenging conversation. Panelists with him include Dennis Chiessa, an architect and professor at The University of Texas at Arlington; Andy Taft, President of Downtown Fort Worth Inc.; and a consultant from HR&A Advisors, the firm responsible for mapping out the future of real estate development in and around Panther Island.
