Additional information from Parallel:

Parallel, an Austin-based real estate development company, broke ground on a 750-bed property at 401 First Street that will serve Texas A&M University students and mark the company’s second recent development in College Station.

The project at 401 First Street will offer a mix of unit types with an emphasis on bachelor, one and two bedroom units. The property will provide its residents with a modern, well-appointed community and academic-focused property and is scheduled to open for the Fall 2024 semester. Amenities will include a full-service Smart Market, Influence Room, Lounge playground, dog park, walk-in townhouses, pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, outdoor study area, outdoor games, yoga room, fitness room, community spaces with multiple study areas, including conference rooms and pods, as well as a sky lounge overlooking Texas A&M and Northgate.

“Parallel is thrilled to open its second project at Northgate, near the A&M campus,” said Kristen Penrod, Principal of Parallel. “This project will provide a diverse mix of units focused on living and learning close to a campus that anticipates continued enrollment growth. Parallel looks forward to providing A&M students with a highly appointed and purpose built product in the Northgate area.

The company has spent a lot of time researching the College Station market in depth so that they can create a community that meets the housing expectations of the next generation of students in Northgate. The result is an academically-achieving community with multiple unit options for students, ranging from studios and one-bedroom units up to a six-bedroom two-story townhouse unit.
