CRG Breaks Ground on 401 Hemphill

CRG and LJC expand multifamily portfolio in Fort Worth, Texas

CHICAGO – November 22, 2019 – CRG, a national real estate development and investment firm, today celebrated the groundbreaking for 401 Hemphill, a new multifamily housing complex located on 2 acres in the bustling Near Southside neighborhood of Fort Worth.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Friday afternoon, November 22 at the site. In attendance was CRG leadership, Cadence McShane’s project team and leadership, LJC as architect, Wintrust, Mike Brennan of Near Southside Inc, and SNK Capital.

Cadence McShane is serving as the general contractor on this new 320,646 SF multifamily project, designed by Lamar Johnson Collaborative (LJC).

The 5-story, 242-unit building includes 4,500 SF of first-class amenity space featuring a state-of- the-art fitness center, co-working space and a landscaped courtyard with an infinity-edged pool, barbeque grills, fire pits and terraced seating.

Additionally, a 5-story, pre-cast parking garage is being constructed which will connect to the apartment building, providing 277 parking spaces.

“This is a great development opportunity for CRG, but the project would not be possible without our partners Cadence McShane, Wintrust Financial Corporation and SNK Capital. Furthermore, the ongoing support and partnership with the Mayor, Betsy Price, and Ann Zedah of the Fort Worth City Council, was pivotal as we continue to work together towards the growth of the community,” said CRG’s Jay Case, Partner, Multifamily. “CRG is excited to expand our multifamily portfolio in the Fort Worth market, in the heart of the vibrant Near Southside neighborhood and the growing medical district where there is a strong demand for housing.”

“We are excited to begin construction on this unique multifamily complex in Fort Worth,” remarked David Tague, Vice President of Housing and Senior Living for Cadence McShane. “We look forward to partnering with CRG and LJC to bring this project to fruition.”  Resident occupancy is schedule for the second quarter of 2021.
