​​​FORT WORTH – Ground broke this week on downtown's first commercial skyscraper in over 20 years: a 25-story tower at 640 Taylor St. It will be the seventh-tallest building in the city. 

The building's designer, Bennett Benner Partners, expects the tower to revitalize the w​est side of downtown.

The new skyscraper will include a parking garage with space for the Fort Worth Club and Morningstar Partners, which owns the former Star-Telegram complex at 400 W. Seventh St., adjacent to the site. The tower will have 258,900 sf of office space and 45,800 sf of amenity space.

The 12th floor will have an outdoor cafe, and the 13th floor will have several high-tech meeting facilities.

Frost Bank will be the anchor and name tenant for the tower, which is being built by Jetta Operating Co. The bank signed a lease earlier this month to occupy over 73,000 sf. 

Stream Realty Partners will oversee leasing and consulting services. Frost was represented by JLL. Balfour Beatty Construction will be the lead contractor.
