Development of the Terrell neighborhood of Fort Worth was stalled by the Great Depression.   Subsequnt post-war housing stock filled the gaps between Victorian and Craftsman bungalows, but it all was ravaged by urban decay.  Still, a vigorous and vocal community remains. The design direction for this for-sale single-family infill project reflects the neighborhood’s desire to respect its architectural roots while having access to contemporary housing amenities.  One and two-story homes are set back from the street with porches, sidewalks, and detached garages in the traditional pattern.  Lively color schemes and numerous elevation variations strengthen the historic streetscape diversity.
