Ohio University will close the Wolfe Street apartment complex, a 52-unit graduate and family housing complex on the Athens campus, when current leases expire on June 15, 2012.
The apartments are tentatively scheduled to be razed later this summer in connection with the Athens campus Capital Improvement Plan and the Housing Master Plan. The site will serve as a parking lot until further elements of the plan can be implemented.
Executive Director of Residential Housing Christine Sheets said Residential Housing is very excited to begin the initial phase of the Housing Master Plan, but noted that the closure of the apartment complex will have a significant impact on our current tenants.
"We have notified tenants well in advance of the closure date and have arranged housing resources for them. Assisting them in finding future housing off campus that meets their needs will be one of our top priorities," said Sheets.
The Housing Master Plan couples a variety of renovation and new construction projects over the next 10 years to improve the residential experience on the Athens campus.
