A new campus is coming to Fort Worth, but not a new university.
Tarleton State University is set to break ground on its first building in Fort Worth on Feb. 27. The building is part of a planned 80-acre campus along Chisholm Trail Parkway.
Currently, Tarleton-Fort Worth rents space in the Hickman Building on Camp Bowie Boulevard and in the Richard C. Shaffer Building on Enderly Pace. About 2,000 students are enrolled at the Fort Worth location, but the school hopes to expand to 9,000 students on the new campus by 2030.
The first project is a 76,000 square foot, three-story multipurpose academic building and has a budget of almost $41 million.
Take a look at the construction site via drone, and the newly released renderings of what's to come:
