TX Project to Feature Dorms and Divinity
KINGSVILLE, TX—Ground broke last week on an interesting project near Texas A&M University here. The result of a land swap between the University’s local campus and the Diocese of Corpus Christi, the project, St. Thomas Aquinas Newman Center, will feature a combination of dorms, student center and chapel.
Being funded with capital from the Diocese and built by Newman Student Housing Fund, a Las Colinas, TX-based firm that builds student housing for the Catholic Church, the property will feature 278 student beds and a 300-seat chapel when it opens in the fall of 2013.
This is reportedly the first Newman Student Center project in the state to feature student residences with the chapel.
