Trinity River Vision board adopts Panther Island

The Trinity River Vision Authority board has approved renaming the Trinity Uptown district to Panther Island.

Prompting the name change was a communitywide urge to brand the new district with an identity that was uniquely Fort Worth, according to a TRVA news release.

“I support the name change,” said board member Bob Riley. “I think Panther Island is a unique destination and uptown is more of a generic term.”

Trinity River Vision Authority is charged with implementing the public infrastructure project that provides flood protection and fosters the development of Panther Island, expecting to provide a pedestrian-oriented, urban waterfront neighborhood in Fort Worth. Panther Island is expected to be home to 10,000 mixed-income homes, 16,000 permanent jobs and is estimated to boost the Tarrant County economy by $1.6 billion per year.
