Built in 1910, the historic XTO Energy building in downtown Fort Worth will be transformed into a hotel by Icon Lodging, according to a Dallas Morning News article. They say,
“A landmark downtown Fort Worth office building will be converted into a hotel.
The former XTO Energy building at 110 W. Seventh St. was built in 1910. The 11-story historical building originally was home to the First National Bank of Fort Worth.
Last year, the nearly 100,000-square-foot property sold to Dallas-based Icon Lodging, an operator and developer of hotels.”
Constructed in 1910, the historic Beaux-Arts building, originally the First National Bank, is undergoing a $33 million renovation by Icon Lodging, transforming it into an extended-stay hotel. The preservation-minded project is seeking historic tax credits, according to an FTW Today article which says,
“Originally constructed in 1910, the 11-story Beaux-Arts building was designed by Sanguinet & Staats as the First National Bank of Fort Worth. Previously known as the Baker Building and the Bob R. Simpson Building, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Irving-based Icon Lodging bought the building in 2022 and is taking on a $33 million renovation. Designed by Bennett Partners, the 120,000-sqft building will soon be an extended-stay hotel. The design team is pursuing historic preservation tax credits in order to preserve the existing historic facades.”
