Denton, Texas — Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions and Texas Woman’s University have broken ground on a $75.5 million, mixed-use development on the university’s campus in Denton.
The project — titled The Residential Village — will be comprised of three, four- and five-story buildings that will include 872 student beds configured in pod-style living quarters with communal bathrooms offering private bathrooms and shower stalls. Three apartment-style units will also be included for on-site resident directors. The community is also set to feature a fitness center, lounge, study areas, multipurpose space, offices for the university’s Housing & Residence Life department and a variety of community gathering spaces.
Texas-based Hill & Wilkinson is the project’s construction contractor and Stantec is the lead architect. Collegiate Housing Foundation, a national non-profit entity, is the project’s residential facility owner through an issuance of project-based, tax-exempt debt financing. The community is scheduled for delivery in August 2019.
