City Council approves Fort Worth Avenue changes, chamber’s variance


City Council on Wednesday approved a major overhaul to Commerce/Fort Worth Avenue as well as a zoning variance for a Bishop Avenue office building that the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce plans to renovate for its offices.

The plan for a 3-and-a-half mile stretch of Fort Worth Avenue/Commerce, from Beckley to Westmoreland, calls for decreasing the roadway from six lanes to four and adding a two-way cycle track and improved sidewalks.

Council also approved the chamber’s plan to use an office building on North Bishop as … an office. The chamber is buying a 4,000-square-foot former medical office building at 1001 N. Bishop with plans to renovate it for its offices. But they found that under the massive Bishop-Davis rezoning of 2010, office-only use is not allowed in that neighborhood.
