Wooow! How can the new Pi Phi house fit on that lot? Well, and Chi O too?

I bet that Tri Delt will be next!

Hi Carnation,
Yeah, I was surprised about Chi-O because of their historic building status. Btw the Chi-O Greek Theatre is also getting a facelift as well.
I know the Pi Phi house will be stunning and it looks like the entry will be angled to face Old Main (from way down Maple St). I think you're right, if not Tri-Delt then Zeta will be next. I wish they would get started on the new Phi Mu and AXO houses, I've seen where they have hired contractors and UA has allocated space on Maple St ,but no sign of construction...gotta get those $$$ I suppose.

Supposed to be between AOPi and Kappa on Maple...Take a look at the link here. You can also see the new TTKA house and it appears that Phi Mu is scheduled to begin this year (if this is accurate). This is the UA master plan.

I can't even remember what was on the AOII side of Kappa on Maple, I guess they're tearing something down? There used to be so many gorgeous big private homes on Douglas right behind them.

I can't either! They still have to find space for KA, Beta and I think Sig Ep wants new housing. KA, Beta, Phi Mu and AXO are all sharing Walton Hall. And I think UA is still open for extension 400+ per chapter...hmmm.

On the corner is a small church. Can't remember the denomination.

Oh, there was a little Presbyterian church there that I used to attend in grad school.

It was my understanding that the Wesley Foundation lot is providing at least some of space and they are being relocated to another area on campus. I know the chapel was an A-frame on Maple.

Carnation, I drove by today and the church has been demolished and a fence is around the property so I believe this will be the new Phi Mu house eventually. The space I believe the UA has allocated for AXO is a house that is used by the U of A Study Abroad Dept. If the rumors are true it sounds like DZ and AGD are presenting in the near future.

That would be right next to Phi Mu so the row would go KKG, Phi Mu, AXO, AOII.

Exciting times along the row! There appears to be no activity around the Study Abroad house (AXO location),but it was a Saturday. There is space the UA could seek between DDD and KKG and also behind ZTA.
