University of Texas at Dallas

Mixed-use housing and retail project to support increases in student enrolment

Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions was selected to develop the first phase of a $52m 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 also includes 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).

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held in April 2017 to commemorate the completion of the first phase of Northside, and the groundbreaking ceremony for the second phase was held immediately following the ribbon cutting. The second phase will include 900 additional beds and more retail and restaurant space.

Phase 2 of Northside is under construction and will be open to students for the Fall 2018 semester.
