Belk Hall demolition underway at ECU

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Another dorm at East Carolina is coming down.
     
Work crews have begun taking apart Belk residence hall brick by brick to make way for two buildings that will become a new entrance to the university's main campus.
     
Residence halls Gateway East and West are planned to better link the College Hill neighborhood to the athletics complex and to 14th Street.
     
Belk Hall has served as a home away from home for close to 500 students at a time.

"That's the oldest dorm, and now all of the other dorms are renovated now. So I guess maybe it will change the feel of it a little bit. It will feel newer. College Hill will be newer after it is gone," said Ashley Mitchell, ECU Freshman.

Bricks, door plates, suite numbers and mailbox covers are currently on sale for people to purchase.

And the project has an entire web-page dedicated to it. You can find out more information about the plans and even catch a time-lapse of the construction by clicking here.
