The Fort Worth Warehouse & Transfer Company Building represents the modernization of the warehouse industry and the evolution of a building type in Fort Worth, Texas. As home to the newly-formed Fort Worth Warehouse & Transfer Co., the building allowed the company to store and transfer items in a secure and efficient manner, and its design incorporated the latest trends in the use of structural reinforced concrete. Constructed in 1913-1915 (and enlarged in 1954) it is the oldest extant example on Fort Worth's Near Southside of a building form that would become a standard for the construction of multi-story warehouses and industrial buildings for the next several decades. The building is nominated to the National Register under Criterion C in the area of Architecture, at the local level of significance.
