Industry group bringing its U.S. headquarters to $200M Fort Worth Stockyards redevelopment
The redevelopment of the Fort Worth Stockyards is gaining some national attention, with the American Paint Horse Association bringing its U.S. headquarters to the Stockyards' historic horse and mule barns.
The American Paint Horse Association plans to move its 45-person staff from its building off Meacham Road in Fort Worth into a new build-to-suit office totaling 11,252 square feet within the 105-year-old horse and mule barns, which are part of the contributing architecture to the Fort Worth Stockyards Historic District.
The association plans to move into the buildings on East Exchange Avenue, which flanks Mule Alley, upon completion of the $50 million redo of the barns by the end of 2018.
The adaptive reuse of the seven horse and mule barns are part of a larger $200 million redevelopment of the Fort Worth Stockyards.
The massive overhaul drew the American Paint Horse Association to the site, said Billy Smith, executive director of the American Paint Horse Association.
Smith said the group wanted to take part in the redevelopment of Fort Worth's "jewel," and believes the location will foster new member interest.
