The Texas A&M University System unveiled its vision for an inter-generational living facility in the Bryan-College Station area of Texas. The public-private project would provide an age-restricted living facility, coupled with a day-care for children. System officials have conducted a pre-proposal conference, with bids to Texas A&M required by June 30, 2017. Construction could begin as early as summer 2018.
Two pieces of land owned by the university are under consideration for the project. One is between University Drive and SH 30, while the other is near Texas Avenue and University Drive. Phillip Ray, TAMU’s vice chancellor for business affairs, told the Bryan Eagle that the development would be a service to the community, as well as a recruiting tool for faculty members. He added that the facilities would also give Texas A&M students an opportunity to work with professionals in real-life situations, particularly students attending the university’s Health Sciences Center and college of education.
