SHSU to build facilities in The Woodlands
Sam Houston State University will begin construction in October on the first of two structures on land deeded to the university last year by Lone Star College-Montgomery, the Houston Chronicle reported. The university is expected to break ground on a 750-space parking garage this October. Three months later, it will begin the construction of a $35 million, 100,000-plus-square-foot academic building. The new buildings, which cover seven acres of land, will take about 18-20 months to construct and be owned and funded by the university. They have been designed to blend in with the existing environment at Lone Star's Montgomery campus, which is located at 3200 College Park Drive, north of The Woodlands.
