Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions was selected to develop the $54m project that included the design, build, financing and operation of an on-campus mixed-use housing and retail development for The University of Texas at Dallas through a public-private partnership.
Northside features a university town center concept, which was developed in partnership with Dallas-based residential and commercial developer Wynne/Jackson. Balfour Beatty Construction, also Dallas-based, led the overall design/build team, featuring Jacobs Engineering and Architecture Demarest as the design subcontractors.
The Northside community includes mid-rise apartments and townhomes that bring approximately 600 beds, as well as shops, restaurants and entertainment venues to serve the more than 30,000 students, faculty, staff and young professionals of the University and the greater Richardson, Texas area. The residential components of the community are managed by Balfour Beatty Communities.
In December 2015, Northside received the Richardson EDGE Award -- recognizing their impact on the Richardson, TX community. EDGE is the economic development growth and expansion initiative of the Richardson Economic Development Partnership (REDP).
