New High Rise breaking ground soon in College Station

Quote:
The skyline of College Station is getting another skyscraper soon.

We take a look at the work happening now to make way for another high rise.

Demolition crews are clearing away the former BB&T bank property on University Drive. In its place are plans for a new 16-story building, currently being called the Sterling High Rise.

Manit Shaw is getting his Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering at Texas A&M and thinks it'll be easy access for students, putting them walking distance to the engineering school.

Like student housing, it's also growing.

"I guess well it's to accommodate the 2025 plan for the College of Engineering. There will be a lot of number of students coming in to take the undergraduate program, so it will be nice for the students to have a I mean apartments closer to the campus and Northgate being the kind of famous place to live here," said Shaw.

The city says the bank being torn down will be the first floor of retail for the new high rise. They'll be around 263 units from one to six bedrooms, making way for about 800 beds.

Cool. That'll be the tallest building there won't it? I know they have another 17-story dorm, but I think it's only around 200 feet or so from what I remember.

EDIT: nevermind, they tore that one down. Wow, I didn't realize until I just checked SSP's College Station page. Anyone know why they tore it down?

By the way, where did that 330 foot height come from?

I believe Rise at Northgate, built in 2013, is the tallest building now. Emporis has the height at 219 ft. This new high-rise will stand next door.

Yeah that height figure was a little absurd for 16-stories. It came from an FAA filing that's no longer up, may have read it wrong at the time. Went back and found a height that's more in line with the floor count.

Proposed Case for : 2016-ASW-8023-OE
