http://wtaw.com/2012/03/08/cs-council-approves-rezoning-for-redeveloping-the-plaza/The College Station City Council unanimously voted Thursday to rezone the northwest corner of Texas and University.
Taking the place of The Plaza hotel and neighboring buildings will be an $85 million dollar mix of student housing, retail, and commercial uses. The city was not asked for any economic development incentives.
No date was given when the closed hotel will be razed, along with neighboring structures in the 11 acre redevelopment. In its place will be 603 student housing units totaling over 1,900 beds along with 60,000 square feet of retail space. A ten-member team attended the council meeting, comprised of the new property owner and their architects, engineers, and other consultants.
Yeah it kind of came out of the blue. Now College Station just needs a few more buildings that size... where the hell did THIS come from?

To celebrate the beginning of a new chapter in veterinary medicine for Texas, administrators from the Texas A&M University System, Texas A&M University, and the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM) broke ground for the new*Veterinary & Biomedical Education Complex. The capital project represents a major expansion for the CVM and will also be one of the largest construction projects on the Texas A&M campus.
“The new facility represents a tremendous opportunity to bring the latest in teaching technology to the CVM and to Texas A&M University,” said Dr. Eleanor Green, the Carl B. King Dean of Veterinary Medicine. “We are very excited that the Board of Regents and the administration of Texas A&M University decided to invest in the future of our college, our faculty, and our students. The impact of having state-of-the-art teaching and clinical facilities will be felt not only by those who receive their education here in the future, but also by those that we serve.”
The new building will house state-of-the-art classroom and teaching laboratory space that will enhance the learning environment for students. Combined with the expansion of the small animal hospital, the new facilities will provide opportunities for innovations in teaching and will nurture collaboration and creativity. In addition, they are expected to be a notable factor in recruiting the best faculty, staff, and students.
