The Beck Group Wins AIA Fort Worth Merit Design Award

  • Dec 7, 2020

The Fort Worth Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) recently awarded The Beck Group the Merit Design Award for its outstanding design of the 133 Nursery Lane Office Park.

The annual awards program recognizes the outstanding work of architect members in the Fort Worth area. Coordinated by a member chair and Council staff, the entries are judged by a panel of leading architects, based on outlined criteria. This year’s panel featured Sara Lopergolo, FAIA; John Ronan, FAIA; and Mark Wellen, FAIA.

The 20,260 SF office building is the third phase of Nursery Lane Park, a unique office and retail development located in The River District, the city’s emerging mixed-use project.

133 Nursery Lane offers a boutique work experience for the area’s growing number of entrepreneurs within a scenic campus.  Offering private suites and flexible space for large offices, 133 Nursery Lane features industrial design, high-end amenities, such as offices with terraces and patios, high ceilings, brick-accent walls, a full-service podcast studio, and access to a walkable community.

Hoyt Hammer, a principal at Beck, commented on the award: “We are truly honored to be recognized by the AIA Fort Worth chapter for our contribution to one of the city’s more unique office projects. This award further underscores our commitment to creating exceptional design projects in Fort Worth and playing an important role in its economic development.”

Mr. Hammer added that this achievement could not have been possible without Fort Capital, the developer of The River District. Recognized as an industry leader in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Fort Capital specializes in property management, master planning, development, and investment management.

Located in the heart of West Fort Worth, the River District – the first of its kind in the area — is anchored by the Trinity River and surrounded by boutique offices, retail businesses, cultural and entertainment attractions, and green spaces.
