​​​​FORT WORTH – ​​Construction begins this month on Greek Village, a project composed of ​11 student houses on the Texas Christian University campus.

Phase one will consist of seven houses—six buildings for 13 sorority chapters and one building for two fraternity chapters—and will be built on vacant land between Bellaire Dr. N. and West Berry St.

Once construction wraps up on the first phase in August 2017, students will move into the new houses while their former houses are demolished to make room for phase two. That will consist of four houses to hold the remaining ten fraternity chapters. There will also be room to add a 12th building at a future date.

More than 540 students live in Greek housing right now, a number that's expected to jump to as high as 850 in 2018. The Greek Village expansion will have 781 beds.

The project is developed by Dallas-based The Beck Group and New York-based KSQ Design.
