College Station, Texas — City Council approved on March 8 the rezoning of an 11-acre site at the corner of Texas Avenue and University Drive for a planned development district near Texas A&M University. The owners, Woodridge College Station and Capstone Collegiate Communities, expect to start construction of the first phase this summer.
"the city council was unanimous in its support of this redevelopment project," said College Station Mayor Nancy Berry in a press release. "The entire community is excited at the transformation that will occur at what's really a gateway intersection to the cities and to Texas A&M University."
Plaza at College Station was designed by Dallas-based Humphreys & Partners Architects. Phase 1 includes 375 student residential units in one- through 4-bedroom configurations as well as 60,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and a 10,000-square foot clubhouse. A pool and parking for 1,400 vehicles is also planned. The first residences will be ready for occupancy in fall 2013. Phase 2 will add 228 residences, another pool and 800 parking spaces. The total construction cost is approximately $85 million.
