NexPoint’s Life Sciences Project in Plano, Texas Renamed Texas Research Quarter

NexPoint’s Life Sciences Project in Plano, Texas Renamed Texas Research Quarter

DALLAS, May 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — NexPoint, a multibillion-dollar alternative investment firm, today announced that its cutting-edge life sciences real estate project known as the “TxS District,” a proposed 200-acre development in Plano, Texas, has been renamed the “Texas Research Quarter.”

Originally signifying “Technology x Science,” the new Texas Research Quarter (“TRQ”) name was chosen to better reflect the commitment to innovation and collaboration among companies and organizations across the life science sector. This focus echoes and complements NexPoint’s own ongoing initiatives to further support and foster real estate development on behalf of the life sciences industry across the U.S.

“The new TRQ moniker reflects the scope and scale of the project,” said Frank Zaccanelli, president of NexPoint Development Company, the development arm of NexPoint’s real estate platform. “It has the potential to put Texas on the map in life sciences, while serving as a major catalyst for economic development in the region.”

The TRQ is centered around a 91-acre main campus, which was acquired by NexPoint in 2018 and previously served as the headquarters for Electronic Data Systems. The proposed project will incorporate 109 additional acres in the Legacy neighborhood. In total, the TRQ is expected to create over four million square feet of lab, office, and therapeutic production space across four phases of construction.  The project will also have a significant impact on the local economy as it will generate nearly $3.8 billion in gross product and 38,405 job-years of employment in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.1

The TRQ is an integral part of NexPoint’s continued push into real estate development in support of the life sciences industry. The firm has made numerous direct investments in biotech companies and other public and private healthcare businesses through its corporate credit and equities group and has been involved in other real estate transactions, including its investment in life science clusters on the East and West Coasts.
