Towering 567 feet above downtown Fort Worth, Burnett Plaza has been a dominant feature of the city skyline since 1983. This 40-story building is located on the west side of the city’s Central Business District, offering more than one million square feet of Class A rentable space. Overlooking historic Burnett Park – Fort Worth’s largest urban greenbelt – and beautifully showcased through 18 feet of clear glass along the east side of the main lobby, the building’s monolithic architecture encompasses two city blocks. The lobby atrium features flame-cut granite which also defines the building’s exterior walkways; 15’ bronze doors define its entrances. A concourse-level pedestrian tunnel offers tenant access to restaurant and retail shops and parking garage.
Located near Interstate 30 and the Trinity Railway Express, Burnett Plaza offers convenient access to Sundance Square, the Fort Worth Convention Center, several five star hotels, the Kimbell Art Museum and the Fort Worth Stockyards.
