Lubbock, Texas — Texas Tech University has broken ground on a $45 million, 178,000-square-foot residence hall designed by BOKA Powell LLC. The new student housing project will be completed in fall 2012 and is in response to Texas Tech's growing number of students. It will house 516 students in private bedrooms and shared living areas. In addition, a two-story, 22,000-square-foot dining hall, three exterior courtyards and new parking lots are planned. BOKA Powell and Austin Commercial have been selected by Texas Tech, which is striving for 40,000 students by 2020, to lead this design-build project.
