Texas Wesleyan University held a groundbreaking – albeit inside because of weather – for The Rosedale, a 48,721 square foot, student residential apartment building on the corner of East Rosedale Street and Collard Street
The project is spearheaded through a partnership between Panteras Development Partners, Miyama USA Texas, and Texas Wesleyan University. The architect is Steven Halliday, Partner with 97w.
The legacy project is slated for completion on July 20, 2022, and will serve more than 100 students. The $10.5 million is an investment in the east side of Fort Worth — 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.
Over 125 people attended the groundbreaking celebration, including some special honored guests like Glenn Lewis, Chairman of Texas Wesleyan Board of Trustees; Chris Nettles, Fort Worth City District 8 Councilmember; Devoyd Jennings, President Fort Worth Metropolitan Black Chamber of Commerce; Fernando Costa, Assistant City Manager; Alex Bryant, Co-founder and Managing Partner of Panteras Development Partners; Sawako Miyama, President and COO of Miyama USA Texas and Fred Slaubach, University President of Texas Wesleyan.
“This is a great day not only for Texas Wesleyan University but the entire city of Fort Worth and, more specifically, the east side of Fort Worth,” said Lewis at the groundbreaking.
“We hope this Rosedale project becomes a game-changer for the university, in the neighborhood, and becomes an oasis for the students who are pursuing their dreams,” said Miyama of Miyama USA Texas.
