Texas A&M to build high tech, innovation center in Ft. Worth

Texas A&M Expanding Tech/Innovation Reach

Texas A&M-Fort Worth, is moving quickly toward construction of the anchor project for a technology and innovation district. It will be planned around the redevelopment of the city’s convention center. The three-building complex, to be built on four blocks at the site of the Texas A&M School of Law, will provide a range of  programs offered by Texas A&M University, Tarleton State University and several A&M System agencies.

The high-rise complex will include classrooms, labs, and flexible research and maker spaces that can be used by the public and private sectors for academic programs. The Research and Innovation building and the Gateway conference center and offices, will be financed with city-issued bonds secured by leases to the A&M System and private sector development firms. This unique financing system will allow the campus to be constructed in about a third of the 15 years it would take for the A&M System to do it alone.
