DALLAS - Developers are about to break ground on a $54 million mixed-use development at the University of Texas at Dallas.

The Northside project will include housing for 600 students and retail space in a four-story complex of buildings at the north end of the university campus.

Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions LLC and Wynne/Jackson Inc. are building the project on 13 acres near the intersection of Synergy Park Blvd. and Floyd Rd., adjacent to a future commuter rail station site.

Current housing at UTD is full and the demand is strong for more units, said Wynne/Jackson principal Michael Jackson.

Construction will start in April and Northside is set to open in August of next year.

“Northside at UT Dallas is essential to support the tremendous growth our campus has experienced,” said Dr. Calvin D. Jamison, vice president for administration at UT Dallas. “Over the past seven years, our enrollment has increased from 14,500 to almost 23,000 students.”.
