EXECUTIVESUMMARYThe Texas A&M Athletics District Plan is a long term visionfocusing on the needs of the student athletes, and theenhanced experience for all Aggie fans, donors, alumniand students. Texas A&M Athletics significantly contributesto the aesthetics and national prominence of Texas A&M.The district plan vision and athletic programs supports thevision of the department.The athletic facilities of Texas A&M are divided into 2distinct campuses on either side of Welborn Dr. and therailroad tracks: Kyle field, Netum Steed, Davis PlayerDevelopment and Bright on the East Side: Soccer,Softball, Track and Field, Baseball, Tennis, Basketball,Volleyball, Swimming and Diving on the west side. Amajor goal of this district Plan is to provide a better senseof community among the various athletic departments.The district plan will strive to provide a connectionamong these facilities using planning, architectural andlandscaping principles set forth in The Overall CampusMaster Plan of 2004. A primary consideration in thisdistrict plan is the level of centralization in the layout offacilities, that is, whether student athletes use facilitiesat their specific event venue, or facilities in a morecentralized location facility. The latter offers opportunitiesfor more efficient facility use between sports, promotesinternal camaraderie with staff, coaches and athletes,better communication, and cohesive branding.The district plan for the facilities captures the best assetswhile addressing aging facilities, temporary facilities andspace shortage. It takes a focused effort and a significantbudget to maintain facilities while addressing programdemand and needs. There is a growing urgency to providequality athlete training facilities, academic supportand competitive venues. A district plan offers the bestopportunity to make educated decisions on the long termgrowth of facilities.Key design challenges are to balance program needs,parking requirements, site constraints and budget. Manyuniversities face similar challenges of balancing programneeds with budget. However, Texas A&M has additionalchallenges with the uniqueness of their location in a Texaslandscape, and especially for the west athletic campus,in a relatively unlandscaped setting. The following is asummary of site issues unique to Texas A&M to consider:• Circulation – pedestrian and vehicular• Parking requirements - number of stalls to remainthe same• Connection to campus• Connection to George Bush Dr.• Definition of public open space• Definition of athletic village• Consistent graphic design branding• Local environment landscape strategy• Shade devices• Video Board requirements• Utility requirements• TelecommunicationsBelow is the list of District Plan Program Items beingconsidered in order of priority.1) Netum Steed Replacement Building2A) New Softball stadium (Aggie Softball complex)a. Indoor Batting Cages & Multipurpose indoorFacility2B) New Track and Field Stadium (Anderson Track & FieldComplex)2C) Modifications South of Kyle Fielda. Future Plaza Building & New Indoor Track VideoBoardc. George Bush Entry Drived. 100 Parking Spaces3) Expanded Academics4) Maintenance Facility Improvements and Expansion5) Swimming and Diving6) New Indoor and Outdoor Tennis Facility7) Renovated West Campus Training Room8) Enhanced Soccer Stadium9) Reed Arena Improvements10) New Volleyball Arena11) Multi-Purpose Field12) Baseball Stadium Improvements(Half Practice Field)A significant consideration in the district planningprocess is the proposed renovations to Kyle Field.These renovations will in all likelihood relocate programspace from Kyle Field, thus require replacement in therenovated Kyle Field or elsewhere. Security Command,personnel within the 12th Man areas, G. Rollie White, andthe Letterman’s Association, are all planned within theKyle Field renovation, but may be located elsewhere ifnecessary or appropriate.Also relocated from adjacent to Kyle Field is the programspace in Netum Steed. This program is currently beingconsidered in a new building adjacent to the soccerstadium.Another consideration is the relocation of Recreation Fieldsand facilities. Options currently considered would requirethe future relocation of some recreational fields andfacilities. A development that may impact their locationis the availability of the land south of George Bush Drive(immediately south of the current recreational facilities).This land is used for grazing by Animal Science. It couldbe used for Recreational Fields through an agreementbetween AgriLife, Student Affairs and Athletics, which hasbeen approved by the President.RECOMMENDATIONSThe recommendations of the District Plan are shown in thisreport in a 3 phase implementation plan. The first phaseincludes the building replacing Netum Steed, and thesubsequent phases indicating all future facilities.Because the existing architectural vocabulary is so diverse,it is recommended that visual unity is created within theground plane and the building’s relationship to the street.These would be created by the following:1) Building Set-back: Buildings should engage anddefine the streets, quadrangles and courtyards of theDistrict. The alignment of their facades should be relativeto other buildings and outdoor spaces.2) Sidewalk Placement: Sidewalks should be placedalong streets with a relationship set by adjacent walks andthose located directly accross the street. Trees should beplaced in a grass strip adjacent to curb.3) Paving Materials: Brick, concrete pavers, and scoredconcrete should be used in patterns to relate to adjacentspaces, approaches from other areas of the campus, andthe patterning that is found throughout campus.4) Landscape improvements in the Athletics District shallmeet the standards defined in the Campus Master Planand Landscape Guidelines and Checklist for LandscapeProjects.5) The ground plane should address benches andvegetation. Benches should tie into the other areas ofcampus to create an overall cohesion throughout campus.6) A standardized pedestrian light pole in the AthleticsDistrict shall meet the standards defined in the CampusMaster Plan and Campus Site Furnishings and HardscapeStandards.7) A standardized way finding signage system in theAthletics District shall meet the standards defined in theCampus Master Plan and Campus Site Furnishings andHardscape Standards.SUMMARY AND SCHEDULEOF PROCESSThe district plan process involved many user groups,coaches, athletics staff and university representatives. Allof the athletic facilities strive to be integrated into theoverall athletic village fabric, however, not all facilities werespecifically addressed.It is anticipated that this district plan may take years toimplement. It may never be realized in its entirety, andits order and content of implemetation may change.While district plan items are ordered by priority, their trueschedule of implementation will be dictated largely byfunding sources.THE DISTRICT PLANTexas A&M has had many successes with a history fullof tradition and pride. The district plan encapsulatestradition, student athlete needs, University assets, modernday Division I standards, the campus Master plan and thevision of the athletic department. The district plan is a toolthat will assist the University in continuing to provide thebest atmosphere for success well into the future.2

8. New West Quad and Wellborn RoadThe intent is to increase the connectivity between the east andwest parts of the campus by incorporating the new underpassesat Jones Street and West Lamar Street, to provide structured openspace for West Campus by developing the area between the Heepand Kleberg buildings and the railroad, and to reduce the perceiveddistance between the west and east parts of the campus.It is also a desire to provide an enhanced presence to the campusfrom Wellborn Road.CAMPUSMASTER PLANINFLUENCESRecommendations include developing Wellborn Road as a seam,or a boulevard, rather than a divider, and extending the civicstructure westward across Wellborn Road by providing a majornew quadrangle for the west part of campus. Buildings to thenorth of the Jones underpass and the south of the West Lamarunderpass should address the lowest level of the underpass andalign to define Wellborn Road and the new West Quad. Futurebuildings to be developed between the Jones and West LamarOld underpasses Main Pedestrian should Connection be aligned to address each underpass. Thebuildings should be configured so that their long dimensionRedefinition of Wellborn Road as a Boulevarddefines the western edge of the new quadrangle and screens theHeep and Kleberg buildings. Vertical elements are appropriate atthe corners adjacent to Old Main Drive, to imply a gateway to thewest and extend the central axis of the campus.NEW 1 WELLBORN ROAD - BOULEVARD2Image from Texas A&M University ----Campus Master Plan26
