University Courts Being Demolished

leave a comment »

SIUC has begun demolishing the University Courts buildings on Normal avenue. The buildings were damaged in the May 8, 2009 derecho. I didn’t see any advance reporting on this, but today I found this notice on the SIU Department of Public Safety website:

Demolition University Courts: Beginning on or about October 22-23, 2010 demolition of University Courts will start. Some metered parking areas in front of University Courts and some spaces in Lot 21 will be unavailable for parking until demolition and scheduled lawn re-seeding are completed.

Here are a few more photos.  I’m glad they left the tree: 

Comments are welcome.
