FORT WORTH, Texas – (Realty News Report) – Taco Heads, a restaurant with a mission to create “the perfect taqueria experience for a cult following of taco lovers” has leased space in the Fort Worth Stockyards district.
Taco Heads leased 3,700 SF at 2341 N. Main Street in the heart of the Stockyards, according to Stream Realty Partners, a firm that represented, the owner of the building, KRS Realty Advisors.
“The Stockyards has such a rich and storied history within Fort Worth, and KRS is excited about what the future holds for the historic district,” said Kerby Smith, Founder and Principal of Fort Worth-based KRS Realty Advisors. “We’re committed to the success of the district and the redevelopment of 2341 N. Main Street and 111 NW 24th Street, and believe that the substantial investment in the area will result in continued interest from consumers, tourists and Fort Worth residents.”
2341 N. Main Street is an adaptive re-use project that transformed a former office building into a vibrant retail/restaurant and office mixed-use facility.
With over 100 feet of frontage facing Main Street and located just one block south of Exchange Avenue, the 7,200-square-foot property, along with the adjacent building, 111 NW 24th Street, a 5,500-square-foot facility (the former Niles City’s Post Office, a National Register Historic Building, c. 1920), boasts a central location in one of the most acclaimed areas in the city. Both buildings received exterior facelifts and renovations in 2020, courtesy of one of Fort Worth’s leading architectural firms, Bennett Benner Partners, who have worked with the city’s Historic and Cultural Landmark Commission on many successful renovations and adaptive use projects in the Stockyards.
Investors have been pouring significant capital into the Stockyards, with over $250 million in improvements underway — the most it’s seen since the boom from Fort Worth’s railway expansion to meet the demand of the meat-packing industry of the early 1900s.
This new Taco Head lease is the second Fort Worth location for the popular taco restaurant, and one of many recent significant transactions to have closed in the city’s historic district, further validating the desirability of the Stockyards as a destination for entertainment, shopping and working.
“Taco Heads is a Fort Worth staple and an exciting new addition to the Stockyards. Signing a restaurant lease during COVID speaks volumes to the bullish nature of the Stockyards and strength of the Fort Worth economy,” said Cullen Donohue, Senior Associate in Stream’s Fort Worth office. “We anticipate the continued capital investment in the area will continue to elevate the Stockyards as a destination location in Fort Worth.”
Taco Heads’ lease signing at 2341 N. Main Street brings the building to full occupancy, with famed cowboy boot brand Tecovas occupying the 3,500-square-foot space next door. 24th & Main has approximately 5,500 square feet available in the adjacent building, located at 111 NW 24th Street.
Sarah Castillo, founder and owner of Taco Heads, said the new location “gives us the ability to gain additional exposure and further build our brand throughout the region, and also gives customers an authentic taqueria experience within the heart and soul of our city.”
Local Architecture and Interiors studio, 97w designed the facility, which will have a covered patio and a full bar.
Stream’s leasing team of Donohue and Vic Meyer represented KRS in the transaction, while William Edwards from Stablemade Group represented Taco Heads.
