One of North Texas’ most successful student housing projects is growing, with hundreds more units planned.

Dallas developer Wynne/Jackson started work in 2015 on the first phase of the Northside residential and retail project at the University of Texas at Dallas in Richardson.

The mixed-use project is on the north side of UTD near a planned station for DART's new Cotton Belt Line, which runs between DFW International Airport and Plano.

Philadelphia-based Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions has been Wynne/Jackson’s partner at Northside.

“We started this week” on the fourth phase of Northside, said Wynne/Jackson’s Michael Jackson. “Phase three — which is well underway and targeted to open in July 2020 — has 246 units and 370 beds.

“Phase four, which just started this week and targeted opening in July 2021, has 387 units and 675 beds.”

The newest construction is at 820 Cecil Drive, near Waterview Parkway and south of Bush Turnpike.

Wynne/Jackson and Balfour Beatty started the first phase of the Northside project at UTD in 2015 with spaces for 600 students and retail space. The second phase in 2017 added housing for 275 students at the project on Floyd Road.

Architecture Demarest designed the Northside project.
