FORT WORTH, TX (26 March 2001) – Pointwise, Inc. today began operations at its new headquarters in the historic Fort Worth South neighborhood. This relocation more than doubles the square footage occupied by the company in anticipation of planned growth. “We are extremely happy with our relocation to Fort Worth South,” said John Chawner, Pointwise's president. “The property is a wonderful combination of turn-of-the-century style and modern office convenience. The neighborhood is an exciting place to do business and we are proud to participate in its revitalization.” Don Scott, president of Fort Worth South, Inc. further commented “The exciting thing about the Pointwise decision to locate their business on the near southside of the city is that it reaffirms our belief that high tech, non-medical businesses, and the intellectual talent that accompanies them, can flourish in a mixed-use, central city location.”
Pointwise's corporate headquarters are now located in the Bicocchi Building. Originally constructed in 1908, the building is architecturally notable for its use of materials, including cast-iron piers, skillfully applied brick, and cast-stone trim including an art nouveau sculpture of the builder's daughter.
