College Station's Northgate continues meteoric riseCollege Station's Northgate continues meteoric risehttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=64022013-09-09T10:35:00Z2013-09-09T00:00:00Z

COLLEGE STATION - The openings of The Rise and The Stack are only the beginning of what will soon become a hub of residential activity in Northgate.

In 2009, an estimated 2,300 people lived in Northgate, but new development will add more than 3,500 new residents and 90,000 sf of nonresidential space, not including Texas A&M's Campus Pointe project. The Rise and Stack combined added nearly 900 beds.

Northpoint Crossing development will add 603 units for a total of 1,900 bedrooms, and 50,000 sf of nonresidential space on 11.5 acres.

A project on 3.4 acres bordered by First St., Church St., Louise Ave., and Wellborn Rd. will bring an estimated 400 to 600 beds and 10,000 to 15,000 sf of nonresidential space with an estimated value of $40 million.

Some of these developments are not providing as much parking as there are beds. The Stack, for example, offers 234 parking spaces for 416 bedrooms.

Residential projects in Northgate only are required to provide parking for 75 percent of residents. This is due to the amount of public parking available and the expectation that not everyone will need a car with the proximity to campus and Northgate.

The City of College Station’s comprehensive plan had planned for 30 dwelling units per acre in the Northgate Area, but after development there will be 60 to 65 per acre.
