Fort Worth: Cavile Place – Stop Six

Initially a thriving community on an interurban streetcar system, the Stop Six neighborhood of Fort Worth is now a neighborhood of contrasts. Today, nearly half of the lots in Stop Six are vacant, and the crime rate is almost four times that of the City. Despite its challenges, Stop Six remains the heartbeat of Fort Worth’s African American community and is just a 15-minute commute to Fort Worth’s downtown and nationally acclaimed biomedical center. With the award of a $35 million Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant, Fort Worth Housing Solutions, the City of Fort Worth, and their partners will transform the historic Stop Six into a neighborhood of choice. Central to the community’s plan is the revitalization of
Cavile Place – a 300-unit distressed public housing development.  Cavile Place will be replaced with nearly 1,000 new units as part of a larger mixed-income, mixed-use community. Meanwhile, supportive services will be in put in place with a focus on increasing residents’ income, delivering high quality health care, and supporting families’ and students’ educational goals. The Choice Neighborhoods Plan will further benefit the Opportunity Zone
designation encompassing a portion of the Stop Six area.
