Texas A&M to begin $127M building in Deep Ellum to boost Dallas enrollment

Texas A&M University has begun construction on a new nine-story, 157,756-square-foot clinic and educational building near Dallas’ Deep Ellum neighborhood.

The $127 million facility, which is being built for the university’s College of Dentistry, will help the Texas A&M dentistry program boost its enrollment by 25 percent. It will also give North Texans another avenue for dental care.

The College Station-based university system plans to hold a ceremonial groundbreaking at the new Dallas facility on Monday, which, upon completion, will have the address of 3000 Gaston Ave. — which includes a portion of land formerly occupied by a neighborhood bar, The Elbow Room.
