Road construction on East Rosedale has been ongoing since last spring, but the ceremonial groundbreaking will mark the beginning of new construction for the campus entryway and clock tower, the United Methodist Church Central Texas Conference Service Center, which will be home to the bishop’s offices, and the business incubator center.
Pillars of the project
The Rosedale Renaissance is a $6.5 million multifaceted project designed to leverage more than $32 million in private and public funding for the benefit of the Polytechnic neighborhood and Texas Wesleyan University.
There are four key pieces to the Rosedale Renaissance development:
- A "front door" to the university, including the new entryway and clock tower ($1.3 million)
- The Methodist conference center and bishop's office ($3 million)
- Business incubator center in the renovated Polytechnic Firehouse ($400,000)
- Improvements to the streets adjacent to campus ($1.8 million)
The project also includes the addition of a reflecting pool in the entryway, promenade-style sidewalks with seat walls and facilities that provide additional opportunities for students to learn.
Be part of the vision
The Rosedale Renaissance is going to shape the future of the campus and revitalize the surrounding area. Don't miss your chance to be part of history.
