Construction of a $63 million luxury apartment complex is underway at a master-planned community about 15 minutes south of downtown Fort Worth.

Titan Development and Aberg Property Co. Inc. broke ground Tuesday on the 284-unit The Trailhead at Chisholm Trail Ranch. The project is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2025.

“The Chisholm Trail Parkway is exploding with growth, and The Trailhead is positioned to deliver much needed multifamily to this vibrant neighborhood,” Josh Rogers, senior vice president at Titan Development, said in a statement.

The project site is on 13.5 acres at the northeast corner of McPherson Boulevard and Brewer Boulevard in Fort Worth.

The apartments, spread across seven buildings, will include one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans along with studios. Amenities will include garages, covered parking and bicycle storage as well as a pool, a dog park and a pickleball court.

Links Construction, based in Denton, will build the project designed by HEDK Architects. Lincoln Apartment Management will operate the property.

The complex will be part of the 625-acre Chisholm Trail Ranch, a community of single-family homes, retail space, a park, a community center and a trail system just west of Chisholm Trail Parkway.

Design features such as artwork and landscaping pay tribute to the Chisholm Trail, the major route used to drive cattle out of Texas in the late 1800s.

“The Trailhead in the historic Chisholm Trail Ranch area is our first multifamily project in Fort Worth, and we especially enjoy creating a distinctly Western theme,” said Kurt Browning, partner at Titan Development.

“As the fastest-growing large city in the country, we’re excited to see the Trailhead at Chisholm Trail Ranch taking shape to support our booming population and thriving economy,” said Robert Sturns, director of economic development for the city of Fort Worth, in a statement. “With its proximity to the new Tarleton State campus and other nearby amenities, this multifamily development is a welcome addition to the new growth happening in southwest Fort Worth.”

The project is a joint venture between Titan Development and Dallas-based Aberg Property Co., with investment from Olympus Property. Aberg Property Co. has been involved in the development of the Chisholm Trail Ranch master plan for more than a decade.

This is Titan’s first apartment project in Fort Worth. The development and investment firm with offices in Austin and Albuquerque has completed more than $2.5 billion of projects since 1999, ranging from multifamily housing to industrial and self-storage properties.

Dallas-Fort Worth is a hot spot for apartment developers and investors. The region led all U.S. metros in multifamily investment over the past year as $29.2 billion worth of apartments changed hands, according to CBRE Group.
