Heads up, commuters: Homes on the move
Jan. 28, 2015
Five homes in the University Courts neighborhood near the IU Bloomington campus will be moved to new locations over the next several weeks, weather and scheduling permitting.
The first home, located at 402 N. Park Ave., was moved Jan. 28 to its new location one block west at 708 E. Eighth St.
Additional moves will place three homes one block west of their current locations:
- 803 E. Eighth St. will relocate to 713 ½ E. Eighth St.
- 815 E. Eighth St. will relocate to 714 E. Eighth St.
- 825 E. Eighth St. will relocate to 704 E. Eighth St.
In addition, a home at 410 N. Park Ave. will move north and west to 502 N. Fess Ave. The home at 809 E. Eighth St. was unable to be saved and will be demolished.
The moves will enable five of the six homes to be saved from demolition as a new house for the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity will be located at the site on the corner of Eighth Street and Woodlawn Avenue. The construction schedule for the new 51,210-square-foot fraternity is pending.
