Below are Texas Architect magazine reviews and pictures of two recently completed buildings at UT Arlington. I believe these 2 projects "raise the bar" at the Arlington campus in terms of design, placement, and engaging the campus community.

Thank you for posting these photos!
I am a UTA grad from the mid-1980's but haven't seen the campus in a few years.
Thanks for sharing!

I attended UTA from 1970-1974 when I graduated. The campus doesn't event remotely resemble what it did back then. I commuted from Wedgwood daily and the 25 mile trip could be made in 30 minutes around 820 to Spur 303 and down Cooper. Of course, that wasn't observing the speed limit signs. Traffic wasn't an issue and you could really move around 820. Anyone remember the first cameras to monitor speed on Spur 303. They were called Orbis and it rotated and only worked in one direction. One side was a dummy. The problem was you never knew which direction was active. Someone was always shooting it with a pellet or bb gun as it was right in the middle of the median. I remember having to remember to hit the brakes just before coming into range. There was a sign that said, "For your safety, speed monitored by Orbis". It was right as you passed the Lake Arlington golf course.

When I first commuted to UTA around 1977 I-20 was open, and Cooper Street/FM 157 was a two-lane country road all the way north to Pioneer Pkwy/303. Over the next few years as Arlington and Mansfield grew explosively traffic got pretty bad. It was horrible during the two-year long construction project to build the 7-lane road that is there today.

Does anyone remember the Saturday night "parades" on Cooper down close to the campus. There were thousands of young peope cruising up and down the street, and through the campus. It blocked traffic trying to get to businesses in the area, and Arlington spent a bundle on police to direct traffic and enforce drinking laws. Seems this was when the stretch of Cooper between Mitchell and Abrams Streets through the middle of the campus was being "sunk". The cruise phenomenon made national news, but went away after a year or so.

I-20 wasn't an option in 1970 as it wasn't there yet. Spur 303 via 820 was about it. Even with all the stop lights on 303, I could still drive the 25 miles in less than half an hour. The traffic on Cooper at night and on the weekends was crazy. They hadn't yet built the walk over so crossing Cooper was almost impossible. I remember numerous people getting hit by speeding cars. Almost all the cars were high school students.

I am also an Dec '03 grad. When I first started they were making plans to "traditionalize" the campus. I remember as I left that they were making strides in getting that done. I will start back this fall and my recent trips made me realize how much firther they have come in the last 4+ years.

I worked there for a couple years. Some of these projects were beginning when I was there and they looked promising. I'm glad to see that they're complete. Facilities and architecture were certainly a challenge to making the campus more traditional. I'm afraid that the challenges go a bit beyond that. For instance, if you were staff and wanted to take classes, you received a remission of only 1/3 of your fees and nothing on tuition. Immediate family of faculty and staff received no remissions at all. Most major public universities offer quite a bit more. This is a major barrier to recruitment, retention, legacy, and ultimately alumni giving. I don't know if any of these policies have changed in the intervening years. Not that there are easy fixes--the money has to come from somewhere. But until they take care of their core, UTA will always be hobbled.

Good point. Looks like the leadership there thinks similarly as you do. Here's an article from the Star-Telegram about a new policy starting this fall which offers half tuition for employees and their families. Great move.

Gosh I remember those days! wink.gif

The drinking age was 18(not that anyone really cared) and there was no open container law. People used to come from Dallas and FW just cruise Cooper. 1/2 the Friday nights of my junior and senior years were spent there.

The way the city ended it was pretty smart. They opened the UTA parking lots so everyone would drive in and park and party. Then after a couple of years they closed the parking lots and I think by then no one remembered about cruising up and down the street.

Editorial in Saturday's paper reflecting Spaniola's plans for the university. Tier 1?

http://www.star-tele...ory/921558.html

Saturday, Sep 20, 2008
Posted on Sat, Sep. 20, 2008
UT Arlington’s president has set his school on a path for growth.





People used to joke about the University of Texas at Arlington being one of the best kept secrets in the Metroplex. It’s getting harder and harder to keep that secret — especially since James Spaniolo took over as president.
It’ll be nearly impossible in the future if what he told UTA administrators, faculty, students and guests Wednesday comes about. In his words, the goal is "making UT Arlington’s name one that’s recognized widely for excellence in education, research and contributions to our community."

That might be codetalk for Tier 1 — the short list of the nation’s best universities.

It can be a polarizing term, implying that smaller or less-exclusive colleges and universities are inferior. That’s an implication Spaniolo wants to avoid. Still, he said, "We can become a nationally recognized research university."

UTA is well-positioned to make this leap forward. It will require prolonged effort, perhaps a decade, and financial support. Dollars are always scarce for institutions that must get a big part of their funding from the Texas Legislature.

As of now, there are only three Tier 1 universities in Texas: UT-Austin, Texas A&M in College Station and private Rice University in Houston.

Those who would like to reach that status include UT-Arlington, UT-Dallas, UT-El Paso, UT-San Antonio, the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas Tech in Lubbock and the University of Houston.

UT-Arlington is at least as ready as any of them. It has more than 25,000 students, offers a broad range of undergraduate and graduate degrees and graduates 6,000 students a year.

On Friday, officials will break ground for the $116 million, 230,000-square-foot Engineering Research Complex near the intersection of Cooper Street and UTA Boulevard.

Spaniolo’s goals are high but achievable. He has capitalized on the talent already on campus and has brought in other top-notch scholars, administrators and staff.

UTA’s time to shine is here. Spaniolo is the leader who can show the way.

I have a great deal of respect for Spaniolo. A few years ago I remember him being at a downtown Arlington planning meeting, held at Johnny High's. Groups of stakeholders and interested parties participated in round-table discussions of ideas to improve the area. Each group was to present their findings to the rest of the groups at the end of the meeting. At the table Spaniolo sat at, he introduced himself to his peers as "just someone that works in administration at [the UTA] campus." He did not throw his title around in an attempt to gain some prestige or to demand attention. Only after one of the meeting hosts insisted on asking him to speak on behalf of the university did his group discover who he really was.

Cheesy story, however I think it says a lot about his character.

Recylican, I believe your story does say a lot about President Spaniolo. He knows who he is, and he knows everybody in a group will find out who he is. But, he doesn't feel the need to put on a little show. That kind of approach appeals to me. When I first met him under the stands at a basketball game, I addressed him as "President Spaniolo." He quickly said, call me "Jim."

I also like it that "Jim" is as likely to be in the Fort Worth community, giving a talk at Rotary, for instance, as in Arlington. That's extremely important. (I view all of Tarrant County as UT Arlington's home.)

For any that may be interested, here is a link to President Spaniolo's speech that the above news article and editorials are based. It is a speech with exciting content, IMO; also, he knows how to craft a speech. I'm told by one who was there that he received a standing ovation.

This is a great start, but UTA has to do more.

I worked on a commitee aimed at getting tier-1 funding for UTA in the late 80's/early 90's and I think TTU, UTD, and UH will be the first to receive tier-1 funding from the state because of current research expenditures and private/business donations. dry.gif

It is going to be real interesting to see what the Legislature does this session to address the issue, if anything. UTA is one of a handful of universities in a position to make a strong case. Certainly the U of H is, as is TT, and UTD. Others want more, too. I can make a list of pros and cons to just about each university. UH already has a lot of research funding...honestly they have a good case and should probably be built-up more. TT is a good school. Only big drawback is their location (get more bang for the buck in a metro area); UTD is a great school, too. (But, speaking of research, Arlington outdid them - barely - in 2007 Federal research.)

I kinda doubt that one or two will be "annointed." I also don't mind if other universities also advance. In fact, I'm for it. Texas needs it. For those of us in this area that care, however, WE can speak-up and support our local economy and education by supporting UT Arlington, and Dallas for that matter, for increased research support. Definitely, North Texas needs national research universities.

Consensus growing on need for more top-tier universities
UT-Dallas president wants contenders to compete for state appropriations by raising private and community money.
By Ralph K.M. Haurwitz

AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF


Monday, September 08, 2008

Higher education leaders and elected officials increasingly agree that Texas needs more top-tier universities to join the ranks of Rice University, Texas A&M University and the University of Texas.

After all, California has nine such institutions; New York, seven; and Pennsylvania, four. By almost any measure, proponents say, Texas needs two or three more top-tier schools, also known as tier-one schools or flagships, if the state wants to be nationally competitive in research, academics and economic development.

But how to decide which of seven potential contenders — Texas Tech University, the University of Houston, the University of North Texas, UT-Dallas, UT-Arlington, UT-El Paso and UT-San Antonio — should be awarded the steady infusions of cash that would be needed to underwrite an effort that could easily take a decade or two?

Perhaps the most comprehensive proposal has been put forward by UT-Dallas President David Daniel, who wants schools to compete for the money and honor.

Under Daniel's 34-page plan, the state Legislature would set aside up to $210 million a year, and the schools that aspire to tier-one status that raise the most money from private and community sources would get the largest shares of that kitty. Besides seeking traditional donor gifts, the schools might try other approaches, such as raising scholarship money for local students from a city, a business or some other entity, he said.

"The whole premise is to try to avoid anointing some institution — and the situation where those that aren't anointed are outraged," Daniel said. "That seems to have been a showstopper in the past."

Indeed, state legislators threatened to pull UT-Arlington out of the UT System a few years ago when system officials suggested that UT-Dallas would be the next research powerhouse. The system's Board of Regents quelled the controversy by pledging to develop the Arlington campus into a major research university with "energy and enthusiasm" equal to that focused on other campuses.

Daniel conceded that his proposal wouldn't work if no universities break out of the pack in fundraising.

"My instincts tell me a small set of universities will be a lot more successful than the others," he said. "I just don't know which ones."

Raymund Paredes, the state's commissioner of higher education, said he isn't so sure.

"The danger is that you give everybody just enough money to fail," Paredes said. "I think it makes more sense to give two or three designated institutions enough to succeed."

Paredes suggested bumping up state appropriations for a couple of schools but conceded that this approach could also have a fatal flaw.

"The question — and only the Legislature can address this — is which institutions?" he said. "I'm not sure we have the political will to resolve which institutions would be designated."

Krista Piferrer, a spokeswoman for Gov. Rick Perry, echoed that concern: "The governor is in favor of establishing more tier-one universities. The question has always been where and how much."

Piferrer said some guidance could come from a select commission on higher education and global competitiveness authorized by the Legislature last year. Perry, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and Texas House Speaker Tom Craddick each appointed five members to the panel, which has until November to produce a draft report on, among other things, "achieving global recognition" for public universities and colleges.

An additional couple of flagships would also ease a worsening admission crunch at UT-Austin. Eighty-one percent of undergraduate students admitted for this fall were accepted under a state law that allows a student in the top 10 percent of his or her Texas high school graduating class to attend any public university in the state. UT officials say that leaves too little room for students with artistic, leadership and other skills who don't happen to rank that high.

Tier-one schools are engines for research and economic development, seed beds for innovation and magnets for superior students and faculty members. But there is no precise and universally accepted definition of a tier-one school. Paredes doesn't like the term, preferring the phrase "nationally competitive research universities" so as not to slight schools that emphasize teaching and the liberal arts.

One frequently cited benchmark is membership in the Association of American Universities, an organization of 60 major research universities in the United States and two in Canada. Another measure is annual research spending of $100 million or more. Texas' three tier-one universities meet those criteria.

Faculty honors, such as membership in the National Academy of Sciences, and student performance in high school and on admission tests are important as well. A good showing in various national rankings, such as those compiled by U.S. News & World Report, helps too.

None of the Texas aspirants is on the cusp of joining the big leagues. Renu Khator, chancellor of the University of Houston System and president of its main campus, said tier-one schools have four elements in common: research, faculty members, educational programs and community support that are all nationally competitive.

"I'm totally comfortable with that approach," Khator said of Daniel's proposal, adding that she is already working to build a "triangular partnership" involving the University of Houston, the private sector and the public sector.

It's a safe bet that Daniel wouldn't have floated the idea if he didn't think his school would be on the short list of serious contenders. State Sen. Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo, chairwoman of the higher education subcommittee, called his concept promising but said some people think it favors schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and Houston, presumably because it might be easier to raise money in large metropolitan areas than in smaller and perhaps less well-heeled communities.

But Diana Natalicio, president of UTEP, expressed confidence that her alumni and community also would contribute generously.

"My feeling," Daniel said, "is it's impossible to build a world-class university without private and community support."

Real good read: the 2008 UT Arlington President's report, "Transformation: the Urgency of Now."

Very well done and exciting stuff. It's all worthwhile, but if you read only one section, I recommend the "Message from the President."

For those who may not have seen this column in the Star-Telegram, it's a good little read.

http://www.star-tele...ry/1672558.html

I believe that, in time, the focus on a "college town" around campus will pay-off. In fact, some positive developments have and are already happening despite a sluggish economy. I believe we are starting to get a critical mass of students who live on or near campus...and another new, modern dormitory, which will wrap around the parking garage and have ground level retail, will begin construction pretty soon.

Here is a university website that shows initiative and seriousness of intent.

A developer is seeking city approval to raze some old, dilapidated apartments across from the new arena developments at UTA to construct higher density 5-story apartments. The developer states these are geared toward non-students,. instead being positioned to attract university employees and downtown execs. They are seeking some variances from existing housing restrictions, but this project is in the center of what should be an urban center that never really developed. There is a lot of momentum in Arlington , especially around the university, for new, more urban development. The Mayor states he would prefer if the developers would work toward a LEED certification for this project.and I think he is right on the mark. Here is a link to the S-T story.

The Downtown Arlington Management Corp. board of directors will support a rezoning request for the proposed $35 million 5 story apartment redevelopment across from the new UTA arena. Arlington City Council vote on whether to allow the project Tuesday night. Still up in the air is whether the developer will seek significant tax concessions as well. Interesting (IMO) discussion regarding required parking spaces for the project. Many people retain auto-centric ideas about how many spaces for cars are needed for each living unit, which I suppose is understandable in a big, spread-out town like Arlington with no viable transportation alternatives. This development could result in an urban node with sufficient density to rate a transit stop on a regional system.

UTA sets new enrollment record. The university is on a steady enrollment climb, perhaps that can help in the quest for additional funding from the UT system that could help it achieve tier one status in the near future...

UTA and UNT ranked by Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Learning as R-1 top-tier doctoral research universities:

Congratulations to both institutions, this brings tremendous prestige to the region and will attract even more research dollars to the area. Fort Worth needs to be commended for what partnership they have fostered with both universities thus far (UNT-HSC, UNT/TCU joint-medical school, UTA Riverbend Research Campus, and the Fort Worth Education Center downtown. The city needs to continue to seek opportunities to partner with the two universities, perhaps a Nursing Program partnership with TCC, a med-tech incubator facility in the Southside, and or a more generally oriented tech incubator district in Riverside.

New Science and Technology building going up at UTA. Looks like it will replace the parking lot between Nedderman Dr. and Mitchell St. along Trading Horse Creek:

Why are the windows combined every two floors? That makes it look like a shorter building.

 

That said, this is located in sprawling transitless suburbia, so I shouldn't care.

More developments on the new Drury hotel in Arlington: http://www.fortworth...lincoln-square/ I guess they ironed out the zoning issues discussed last summer.
