The Bowling Green State University Board of Trustees Friday moved ahead on a plan to replace the Greek housing on campus.
The trustees approved spending $1,992,754 to do architectural design and pre-construction services.
The university has assessed the existing Greek housing and determined, according to supporting material presented to the trustees: "(T)he condition of the buildings was poor and not suitable for renovation."
The university plans to level the Greek housing between East Wooster Street and Jerome Library and the Fine Arts Center, and construct new townhouse-style buildings for all the fraternities and sororities with the capacity for about 400.
The estimated cost of the project, which is expected to be completed by August, 2016, is $30 million.
The demolition work is expected to start this summer. Students have until June 1 to vacate the properties.
Trustees will act on a resolution to appropriate the money for the demolition at their June 19 meeting.
