Stop Six Choice Neighborhood Initiative

A Phased Approach

The Housing plan capitalizes on the area’s abundant assets and offers fresh approaches to remedying persistent challenges. The plan responds to four key opportunities in Stop Six:

  • An opportunity to establish a major anchor in the community that serves as a catalyst and focal point of new investment
  • Redevelopment of the former Cavile Place public housing site
  • Enhancement and activation of East Rosedale Street
  • Presence of vacant and under-utilized land that can be developed for housing, parks, open space and other elements to knit together the community

 

The plan calls for construction of mixed-use, mixed-income development in six phases over eight years and anticipates that the public housing investment will attract private developers to the community. Low-Income Housing Tax Credits will be sought to help finance development.

The phases include senior housing, low-income replacement units, permanent supportive housing units and tax credit units as well as market-rate units.

Construction began in September 2021 with Cowan Place Senior Living, a community of 174 one- and two-bedroom units at East Rosedale and Stalcup Road. View a 3D animation of Cowan Place at https://youtu.be/65dMoGqG06o

Stop Six Development Phases
Deconcentrating Poverty

Deconcentrating poverty has been a priority for the City of Fort Worth and Fort Worth Housing Solutions  throughout the past decade. The Stop Six Choice Neighborhood plan reflects this intent by replacing 300 former Cavile Place units with about 1,000 new, mixed-income units.

The new residences are not limited to the footprint of the former Cavile Place but will include multiple strategic sites acquired throughout the community to create a cross-neighborhood market transformation, anchor key entry points to the community and bring visibility to the central site on the East Rosedale Street corridor.
