Younger Partners, the Dallas commercial real estate that acquired the Crockett Row development in West Fort Worth in 2022 and rebranded it Artisan Circle, has purchased the site formerly occupied by Fred’s Texas Cafe and made it part of the adjacent Artisan Circle.

Artisan Circle covers five blocks in the Southeast quadrant of University Drive and West 7th Street. It is bounded by Foch Street on the east and Morton Street on the south. The 6,501-square-foot former Fred’s property is at 915 Currie St. 

“As of now, Younger Partners remains undecided on a specific redevelopment plan for the acquired site,” Younger Partners, which bought Crockett Row in August 2022, said in a release.

“We believe in the transformative power of real estate, and with this acquisition, we are poised to bring additional positive changes that will enrich the entire community,” Permenter, co-managing partner of Younger Partners, said in the release.

“Our vision extends beyond the property lines. It’s about fostering growth, creating value, and ensuring that Artisan Circle becomes an even more integral part of the fabric of Fort Worth’s Cultural District. We are excited about the possibilities this acquisition presents for the neighborhood and look forward to playing a key role in its continued development.”

Younger Partners recently announced a plan for Artisan Circle that includes new gathering spaces, improved wayfinding, updated signage, and enhanced accessibility. Artisan Circle is home to more than 25 upscale dining, wellness, and entertainment options.
