New Carmax Location Under Construction in North Fort Worth

A new Carmax location is under construction at the southwest corner of Interstate 35 West and Heritage Trace Parkway in North Fort Worth. This Carmax Superstore is being built next to the recently opened Black Bear Diner in the rapidly expanding Fort Worth Alliance community.

The new Carmax location as it was back in 2001 before Fort Worth’s urban Sprawl

This marks the first development on this site, which was previously untouched grassland. Aerial images from the 1950s show desolate land before Interstate 35 cut through the area in the mid-1960s. Heritage Trace Parkway was completed three decades later, but it wasn’t until the late 2000s that Fort Worth’s urban sprawl began to engulf the area.

The same location 22 years later with multiple new buildings, roads and a wider Interstate 35 west.

Carmax, founded in 1993 by executives of the now-defunct Circuit City, has grown significantly. Circuit City went out of business in 2012, but Carmax has continued to thrive and expand.
