Fort Worth Public Market

Fort Worth, TX


The Public Market stands out for its unique blend of architectural styles, multi-colored tile roof, jewel-toned stained glass windows, and intricate masonry. Plus, its 85-foot tower cannot be missed. Developed by John J. Harden, a proud Oklahoma native and the namesake of this project, The Public Market was one of three Mr. Harden built but is the only structure that fully remains intact. After sitting idle for almost a century, Wilks Development has a new dream for this iconic community cornerstone: to create a cultural hotspot. With a restorative approach to development, The Wilks is developing a space that will honor the history and legacy of this historic building while bringing new life to benefit the entire city.
