Texas Wesleyan community to celebrate at student housing groundbreaking
Update, July 19: Due to weather, the ceremony will take place at Texas Wesleyan's Martin Hall, located in the Ann Waggoner Fine Arts Building at 1309 Wesleyan Street.
Texas Wesleyan University, in partnership with Panteras Development Partners and Miyama USA Texas, announces that they will officially break ground on ‘The Rosedale’ — a sophisticated, 48,721 square foot student residential apartment building on the corner of East Rosedale and Collard — on Tuesday, July 20 at 10 a.m.
The exciting legacy project features a three-story building with one and two-bedroom apartments, private secured parking and numerous other exciting amenities designed with the Texas Wesleyan students, faculty and staff in mind. The project will serve more than 100 students and is a $10.5 million investment in the east side of Fort Worth. The endeavor is in line with the efforts to revitalize the area through The Rosedale Renaissance, a $22 million project spearheaded by Texas Wesleyan, the City of Fort Worth and Tarrant County for the campus and the Polytechnic neighborhood.
The campus community is invited to share in the excitement of this new project at the groundbreaking ceremony. Hear from University President Fred Slabach and other speakers about the impact of the project on Texas Wesleyan and the community, and grab a sweet treat after the ceremony to commemorate this special day.
When asked about this addition to East Fort Worth and what this will mean for the campus life at Texas Wesleyan, President Slabach said, “The addition of The Rosedale, steps from the heart of the Texas Wesleyan campus, is the latest example of the commitment we’ve made to immerse our students in the community we’ve called home since 1890. A key component of our new Engage 2025 strategic plan is enhancing diversity, inclusion, student life, civic responsibility and economic opportunity empowering our students’ success while revitalizing our campus and neighborhood. The Rosedale fulfills that vision by allowing our students to learn, work and live within our East Fort Worth neighborhood, enabling them to plant long-lasting roots and build strong relationships that our community will benefit from for generations to come.”
