Construction Begins on The Square at Campus Pointe
Construction of Fresno’s newest retail center was formally launched on February 10, 2014, with a groundbreaking ceremony for The Square at Campus Pointe. Master planned by ELS and linked to California State University, Fresno by a pedestrian oriented campus road, Campus Pointe is a new 45-acre mixed-use development from developer Ed Kashian. The project is the largest mixed use public-private partnership to date in the CSU system. Featuring retail, restaurants, multiplex cinema, housing, hotel and office uses, Campus Pointe provides new community gathering places for students and faculty. ELS designed the retail buildings as well the park at the center of the development. Two apartment complexes, designed by another architect, were built in 2010. Senior housing is planned south of the retail district.
