Developer is honored for historic preservation work on the project
FORT WORTH, Texas, October 9, 2018 (Newswire.com) – Embrey Partners just announced the opening of the Kelley at Samuels Avenue luxury apartments property, located at 769 Samuels Avenue in the Samuels Avenue historical district. The upscale complex consists of 353 units and sits on 10 acres of land convenient to downtown Fort Worth, Sundance Square, 7th Street and the Fort Worth Cultural District. Available for lease are one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and three-story townhomes with attached two-car garages.
“This development has been one of Embrey Partners’ most rewarding projects because of the careful restoration and repurposing of the historic Garvey House, also known as the ‘Queen of the Trinity,’ which was located on the property when we acquired it,” said John Kirk, executive vice president of development for Embrey Partners. “We also were able to move the Talbott-Wall Home from our property to another location in the Samuels Avenue neighborhood. Each of these magnificent homes are more than 100 years old, and we were very meticulous in our handling of these valuable historic resources in Fort Worth.”
Due to Embrey Partners’ preservation work on the project, the Texas Historical Commission honored the developer with an “Award of Merit.” Historic Fort Worth Inc. (HFW) has also recognized the developer with its 2018 Preservation Project Award for work on both homes.
“When we started the project in this historic location, we knew the challenge would be to create a modern residential community for prospective tenants while using the proper preservation principles that our neighbors would sincerely appreciate,” Kirk noted. “I think we struck the right balance at the Kelley at Samuels Avenue. And, needless to say, we were quite honored to receive the preservation awards.”
In addition to the exceptional views of the downtown skyline and Trinity River, the Kelley at Samuels Avenue includes notable amenities such as a business center, library, biergärten for nightly entertainment, infinity-edge swimming pool, fitness center with a yoga and spin studio, bicycle repair station and two dog parks with a dog washing station. The development also fits into the City of Fort Worth’s strategic goals to bring more business and creative professionals closer to the city’s downtown economic center.
