About Trinity Terrace
Trinity Terrace has earned a strong reputation for excellence and authentic livingĖthe kind of friendly and genuinely caring environment that simply can't be contrived. It's no surprise, then, that demand for residences in our Fort Worth community left people chomping for more.
In response, Trinity Terrace built the River Tower, a 23-story residential tower that includes 78 new residences ranging from brownstone-style ground-floor homes to apartments with a range of floor plans and penthouse-style residences on the top six floors. The tower includes a mix of independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care. The new River Tower connects to the existing Trinity Terrace tower on several levels and includes a skyline dining room to serve residents in both towers.
