Today marked the ground-breaking ceremony of this medium-density project. featuring more than 200,000 square feet of shopping, dining, office and entertainment space, as well as two full-service boutique hotels, a 90,000-square-foot Class A office building and a four-story, 250-unit apartment complex.
Century Square will be a public-private partnership between Midway, its development partners and Texas A&M University. Earlier this year, Midway signed a 75-year ground lease on 60 acres of university-owned land along University Drive, between Texas and College avenues.
During its first phase of development, Midway plans to build nearly a dozen mid-rise buildings on 20 to 30 acres, leaving about half of the property for future development. In the center of the project, Midway has partnered with Valencia Group to build two full-service, boutique hotels: The George (160 rooms) and Cavalry Court (140 rooms). Moreover, Century Square will have a four-story, 250-unit apartment complex that will feature two courtyards with a resort-style pool and high-end amenities. Century Square will have a large green plaza for public concerts, events and Aggie tailgates.
Breaking ground on the multifamily project in January, Midway expects it will take 16 to 18 months to complete.The hotels will break ground in March and take 13 to 14 months to build. All in all, the first phase of development is expected to be delivered by summer 2016, and will be an amazing addition to the ever-growing Brazos Valley. ***Courtesy Paul Takahasi, Houston Business Journal***
