Multifamily developer JPI has broken ground on Jefferson Eastchase, a new apartment community in Fort Worth, Texas. The Class A property is aimed at bringing much-needed housing, including income-restricted apartments, to the local area.

Located at 8101 Ederville Road, near Cooks Lane and Interstate 30 in East Fort Worth, the three- and four-story property will feature 398 apartment homes in one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts.

Features of the apartments include stainless-steel appliances, 10-foot-high ceilings, high-speed Internet access and full-size in-unit washers and dryers. A large, elevated pool deck with cabana access is among the property’s common-area amenities.

Site headwinds

Partners in developing Jefferson Eastchase will include DLR Group Architects, structural engineer Integrity Structural, civil engineer Kimley-Horn and landscape engineer Land Design. JPI will partner with Fort Worth Housing Solutions to ensure that much-needed income restricted apartments are included at the property. First occupancies are tentatively scheduled for the third quarter of 2026.

“The topography of the site was the greatest challenge our engineering and design teams had to overcome,” Chase Addington, a JPI vice president, told Multi-Housing News. “The site itself had over 50 feet of fall from north to south, creating the need for huge retaining walls and split-level buildings. To combat this, the team employed innovative solutions by engineering retaining walls and incorporating the natural elevations of the site into the overall landscape design where possible. Additionally, the team organized a comprehensive tree preservation program to ensure that the natural elements of the project were as preserved as possible.”

The East Fort Worth area is situated between Downtown Fort Worth and nearby suburban Arlington. The area offers access to Lake Arlington, the Trinity River and major highways. From most areas of East Fort Worth, residents can reach downtown Fort Worth in less than 20 minutes.

Several colleges and universities, including the University of Texas, Arlington, Texas Wesleyan University and Tarrant County College, are located nearby. Several transit and subway stations on the DART system can be accessed in less than 15 minutes, including Richland Hills, Hurst/Bell and Fort Worth Intermodal Transportation Center. Eastchase Crossing and Shepherd Oaks are among nearby shopping centers.

Five parks and attractions are located within approximately 12 miles. They are River Legacy Parks, River Legacy Living Science Center, University of Texas Arlington Planetarium, Botanical Research Institute of Texas and Trinity Trails. Last week, Trademark Property Co. and SCOA Real Estate partners broke ground on a new Downtown Fort Worth multifamily community, The Vickery.
