 Fort Worth, Texas (February 22, 2024) – JPI, a leader in the development of Class A multifamily communities, held a groundbreaking ceremony today to commemorate the start of construction on Jefferson Eastchase, which will bring 398 homes to Fort Worth, Texas. 

 This 3- and 4-story walk-up community will host a combination of market rate and attainable housing in 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and 3-bedroom configurations. In partnership with Fort Worth Housing Solutions, this project will bring much-needed housing to the local area, including income-restricted units to help meet the need for attainable housing. Each home will be equipped with premium amenities, such as stainless-steel appliances, 10-foot ceilings, and a full-sized washer and dryer in each home. 

 Beyond the home amenities, Jefferson Eastchase was designed with a keen eye towards enriching the overall community atmosphere and includes beautiful indoor/outdoor spaces, such as a large, elevated pool deck and cabana, a beautiful clubroom, a well-equipped fitness center and yoga studio, a coworking lounge, a community pocket park and dog park, and much more. 

 “We are excited to launch our second project with Fort Worth Housing Solutions, which will help to meet the pressing need for quality, affordable housing in the area,” said Chase Addington, Vice President of Development for JPI. “Our passion at JPI is building communities that provide quality housing and positively impact lives. I’m proud that this project will leave a lasting impact on this community for years to come.” 

 “We’re always excited when we have the chance to work with great partners to better serve the needs of our Fort Worth community,” said Mary-Margaret Lemons, President of Fort Worth Housing Solutions. “Our partnership with JPI on Jefferson Eastchase will bring nearly 400 units to East Fort Worth at both market-rate and various levels of affordability. Projects such as Jefferson Eastchase further expand our ability to create communities where people can thrive.” 

Partners on the community include DLR Group architects, Integrity Structural (Structural Engineering), Kimley-Horn (Civil Engineering), and Land Design (Landscape Engineer).
