FORT WORTH – A new mixed-use development is incorporating U.S. Navy shelter designs from 1941 called Quonset huts into its architecture.
The PS1200 development has apartments, offices, a restaurant, coffee shop, and gallery built from modified Quonsets. The apartments at the top two levels of the huts are 1,100 sf each and have a monthly rent of $3,000. The ground floor is office space.
The galvanized steel huts used for the project had a budget of $10 million and were constructed by SteelMaster.
The project is developed by Philip Kafka and designed by Marlon Blackwell with landscaping by DIRT Studio.
