    Overview

College officials unveiled the elevations for William & Mary‘s new fraternity complex Sept. 22 during a meeting of the Board of Visitors (BOV) Buildings and Grounds Committee.

The site for the new fraternity complex was announced last April. It will be located along Ukrop Way across from William & Mary Hall. The twelve building fraternity complex will include 11 housing units featuring three different elevations as well as a community building. Six of the buildings will sit north of Yates Drive and six south.

“This complex will transform that part of campus,” Vice President for Administration Anna Martin told the committee.

The housing units will provide a total of 187 beds – 17 in each unit. While the housing units will feature different elevations, with varying floor plans, Martin said all of the residential units are approximately 6600 square feet and feature the same components including 17 beds; a kitchen; social, study and laundry rooms.

The fraternity project is estimated at a cost of $26 million and will be funded principally through room fees. It is scheduled as a two-phase project and is slated to be online in fall 2013. Work will begin Jan. 2012 on the parking lot being added by William & Mary Hall. Ground should be broken on the construction of the housing units that April. The existing fraternity housing units will be refreshed and converted back to the undergraduate housing inventory.

In other business:

  • Committee members saw drawings of a solar array between the Sadler Center and the Lodges that is being proposed as a part of the Eco-Village project. It is expected that the Lodges will be converted into an Eco-Village one, by one as money is raised for the projects. The feasibility study for the projects will be presented at the BOV’s December meeting. 
  • The College received word Sept. 19 that it would receive $1.5 million from the State of Virginia to complete the working papers and demolition work for planned renovations of Tucker Hall and $4.8 million in state funding for planning for phase three of the Integrated Science Center (ISC).
