For the better part of two years, BTU was getting a new administration building on Carson Street on city land where the armory once stood.
On Monday, the BTU board accepted the city’s offer to build in north Bryan along the freeway between the Bryan regional athletic complex and state property used by TxDOT and DPS.
BTU general Manager Gary Miller said city officials wanted to keep the former armory property available for development related to the new Midtown Park.
Miller says the new location does not change what services will be offered.
BTU’s downtown office is being taken over for more city hall departments.
An architect has been hired to design BTU’s new building, which will still have a lobby and a drive-through.
Miller says there is some possibility that construction will start in the 2023 calendar year.
