The university's board of regents has approved adding two buildings to its capital plan for an education and research campus proposed in downtown Fort Worth, reports The Texas Tribune.
Under the plan, the university is looking to construct an $85 million law and education building and an $85 million research and innovation center.
The university is calling the new campus "Aggieland North." It will be next to the Texas A&M School of Law and will house a variety of research and education programs.
A third building on campus, the Gateway Center, is also in the works. It will replace the university's existing law school building, Texas Wesleyan University’s former law school building. It became Texas A&M School of Law in 2013.
The money for the buildings in Fort Worth is part of a $1.5 billion package of newly approved projects that make up the system’s five-year, $4.2 billion capital plan across the system’s 11 universities and eight state agencies.
Texas A&M leaders expect to bring a design for the new law and education building before the board next spring.
