CRE Briefs: Buzzy Spa Resort Plans New Fort Worth Location

Plus: Crow Holdings raises $2.3 billion real estate fund; KDC brings 1.4 million square feet of office space to CityLine development; and more.

Premier health spa Canyon Ranch has unveiled plans for a first-of-its-kind wellness club in the forthcoming Crescent Fort Worth Development in the Cultural District in 2023. Said to be an “urban” extension of the famed brand, the retreat will include a massive 26,000-square foot spa and fitness center, as well as wellness guidance, health-focused programming, and a members’ lounge.

A trailblazer in the space since 1979, Canyon Ranch previously moved its headquarters to Fort Worth when Goff Capital purchased the brand in 2017.

The new club will be located within the Crescent Fort Worth Development, which broke ground earlier this month. The mixed-use development will include a 200-room boutique hotel with a Dean Fearing concept restaurant. Additional amenities include a rooftop lounge and 170 residential units.

The Fort Worth location will be one of several Canyon Ranch Wellness Clubs opening in key markets around the U.S. Canyon Ranch currently operates award-winning resorts in Tucson, Arizona and Lenox, Massachusetts; a new wellness retreat in Woodside, California; and the largest day spa in North America at The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas.
