First iteration in series on display now at WestBend in Fort Worth

FORT WORTH, Texas (Feb. 2, 2017) – WestBend, Trademark Property Co.’s University District mixed-use development, and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art have partnered to bring the Amon Carter’s celebrated photography collection to the heart of Fort Worth’s University District through a unique public art program.

On display now at WestBend is a selection of nine, 4-by-6-foot reproductions from the Amon Carter’s photography collection. The photographs presented on backlit film and displayed in lightboxes, are the first in a series of exhibitions featuring the Amon Carter’s photography program. Each iteration of the series is curated by the Amon Carter and will be on display at WestBend for six month intervals.

The program is part of Trademark Property Co.’s commitment to local and artisan through its Conscious Place initiative, a stakeholder-driven development model that aims to ensure its properties are more than just places of commerce, but also places of community and meaning.

“Incorporating public art into our properties by partnering with local and national artists and museums is a key initiative for Trademark portfolio-wide because it helps elevate the purpose of our properties beyond retail and commerce. Art adds soul to a property, along with educational and inspirational elements,” said Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co. “We are thrilled that WestBend can serve as a home for these pieces and hope that the community gets as much enjoyment from them as we do.”

The first iteration focuses on nine works that represent the breadth of the Amon Carter’s collection.

“We are delighted to be working with Trademark to introduce illustrations from our distinguished photography collection and program to the broader Fort Worth community through this innovative endeavor,” said John Rohrbach, senior curator of photographs at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art.

With more than 45,000 works by over 450 artists, the Amon Carter is one of the world’s leading repositories of photography. The museum’s holdings span the development of photography, from one of the first images made in the United States, to digital prints made in the last twelve months. Besides tracing photography’s artistic development through works created by the medium’s iconic figures, the collection vividly reflects the nation’s diverse natural beauty and history.

In addition to the Amon Carter series, WestBend also features five photographic murals by Fort Worth artist and TCU graduate, Devon Nowlin, assistant registrar at the Amon Carter. The murals, which face the scenic Trinity River and Trinity River Trails and the new Tom Thumb, capture the shopping and dining experience, health and fitness, and the natural surroundings of WestBend. Additional public art initiatives are planned for the property in the coming months.

WestBend is located at South University Drive and River Run in Fort Worth, TX.

Trademark Property Co. Celebrates the Grand Opening of Waterside, the First Conscious Place

First-of-its-kind, mixed-use property marks debut of next-generation experiential retail development model dubbed Conscious Place

FORT WORTH, Texas (Nov. 21, 2016) – Trademark Property Co. is celebrating the grand opening of Waterside. The 63-acre mixed-use property at Bryant Irvin Road and Arborlawn Drive in Fort Worth, Texas is the first ground up Conscious Place, Trademark’s next-generation experiential development model.

As a Conscious Place, Waterside is a center of commerce, community and meaning. Every aspect of development – from leasing to amenity selection – was driven by community input and carefully evaluated for its ability to inspire, educate and connect with a broad group of stakeholders, a nod to the core tenets of Conscious Capitalism. All public aspects of the Conscious Place are free to the user with no requirement to shop or spend money at the surrounding retailers. The end results are amenity-laden public spaces funded by the private sector.

“We created our Conscious Place initiative to assign a higher purpose to retail and mixed-use properties. They aren’t just for shopping, working and living; they are part of the community, and ultimately part of people’s lives. We want to ensure that our properties are active, engaged, and contributing to the betterment of the community,” said Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co. “By listening to the community and putting in the extra time, investment and effort into incorporating conscious principles into a property, like local, artisan, and sustainable elements, we believe that we are creating a better experience for all stakeholders: our employees can find a greater purpose in their jobs, our tenants can find new opportunities to connect and engage, and our customers can find more than just a place to shop.”

The centerpiece of Waterside is “The Grove,” a vibrant public space designed around several heritage trees and loaded with conscious amenities, like shaded outdoor seating venues with free Wi-Fi, play areas, a 6,600-gallon rainwater cistern used to irrigate drought-resistant landscaping, public art, a community pavilion, and a community promotion shed available for use by community and nonprofit organizations. The Grove also features Waterside’s signature micro-restaurants, which were created to support local entrepreneurs by offering smaller spaces, lower startup costs, shorter term leases, and community seating.

Also included in The Grove is a public art program that celebrates the area’s history with work by Texas artist, Bob “Daddy-O” Wade, made from repurposed amusement rides, playground equipment and photography from the site’s original use as the Lockheed Martin Recreation Association. Additional work by local artisans include benches and a chalkboard from Brother Sister Design; tables, adirondacks, benches, cornhole, jenga, and a giant, photo-opp-worthy Adirondack by Pallet Smart; and corten steel planters, bollard covers and live oak panels by Fife Metal Works. Other public art includes a playful “Sorry, no social media” neon sign hung above the children’s chalkboard area by Greek-born, New York- based artist Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos.

Waterside enriches its 1.8 miles of Trinity River frontage via a new extension of the Trinity Trails consisting of a trailhead with a soon-to-come bicycle repair and air station, solar powered charging stations, an internal trail system, a signature bridge, and REI’s kayak and canoe lesson and trial area.

Conscious Place elements extend to tenants as well. As part of its initial phase, Waterside has welcomed several tenants whose company culture aligns with the principles of Conscious Place, including anchors REI and Whole Foods Market. Other tenants include Sur La Table, Taco Diner, Blaze Pizza, Tokyo Joe’s, CycleBar, and Zoë’s Kitchen. Openings will continue throughout the coming months with Piattello Italian Kitchen, the second restaurant by local, Culinary Institute of America-trained chef, Marcus Paslay, and Steel City Pops, as well as additional retailers and local, chef-driven restaurants. Phase I openings also include 383 multi-family units.

At full build out, Waterside will be a walkable, dynamic district including 200,000 square feet of retail space and riverside restaurants, 800 multifamily residential units, hotels, office buildings and potential for additional high density single family housing, much of which will be situated along the Trinity River.

Trademark will continue to implement its Conscious Place initiative across its 16-property portfolio for both development and redevelopment projects, tailoring the amenities and initiatives to meet the needs of the local community and each property’s unique group of stakeholders.

Trademark Property Co. to Develop 82-acre Mixed-Use Town Center Project in Katy, TX

Media Contact:
Maggie Holley, mholley@sunwestpr.com; 214-373-1601

KATY, Texas (Sept. 29, 2016) – Trademark Property Co. has entered into an agreement with Westside Ventures to develop an 82-acre mixed-use town center at the northwest corner of I-10 and Mason Road in Katy, Texas. Planning will continue in the coming months for the initial 60-acre phase, which will include retail, restaurant, residential, hotel and office space.

“This particular piece of land is one that we feel is ideally suited for mixed-use,” said John McCormack, CEO, Westside Ventures. “Trademark’s expertise in developing world-class, mixed-use town centers, like Market Street Woodlands, make them a perfect partner to develop this property into its full potential.”

The site, which is part of a larger 107-acre tract owned by Westside Ventures, will be developed in phases over the coming years. Phasing and a construction timeline will be scheduled following planning.

“We believe this site is the next great opportunity in the country to develop a premier regional, mixed-use town center,” said Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co. “There is a tremendous retail void in West Houston. Combined with the compelling housing, population and income demographics, and the site’s adjacency to I-10 and Grand Parkway and the Energy Corridor, this represents a long term opportunity for Trademark to cultivate a next-generation, best-in-class environment for the West Houston and Katy communities.”

Trademark has been active in Houston since 2002, developing both Royal Oaks Village and Market Street Woodlands, the 570,000-square-foot mixed-use development in The Woodlands Town Center.  Currently, Trademark is redeveloping, leasing and operating Rice University’s holdings in Rice Village, as well as continuing to operate Market Street Woodlands.
