West Elm is expanding in Texas.
The retailer, a division of William-Sonoma, will open its first Fort Worth location this summer. The 10,502-sq.-ft. store will be located at West 7th Fort Worth, an open-air center in the heart of the ‘Cultural District” in Fort Worth, Texas.
The West 7th development encompasses nearly five blocks of pedestrian-friendly urban elements. It is managed by Vestar.
West Elm operates 87 stores in the United States, Australia, Canada and the U.K. The new Fort Worth location will feature a selection of Texas-based makers and designers who will sell their products in the store's fall assortment of modern furnishings and décor as part of the west elm Local program and a design lab will offer West Elm’s style services.
"The Cultural District is truly special, and West 7th is proud to be an integral part of this community," said Peter Jacobsen, senior VP at The Woodmont Company, which is responsible for the center’s leasing. "We believe the commitment by West Elm and our upcoming announcements of other new retailers and restaurants is further testament to the neighborhood's evolution into one of the top urban, walkable shopping and entertainment districts in Texas."
