Ask Cam

The times they are a-changin'

June 3, 2009

Question:

Cam, I am just being nosy and I wondered if you would help. There used to be an old fraternity house at the northwest intersection of Howes and Laurel. This has recently been torn down, and there's now construction going on. Do you have any clues as to what might be going up there?

Cam’s answer:

The property is privately owned and is being redeveloped into a mixed-use project called Oval Flats by Brinkman Partners developers.

On their website, the company says the four-story, mixed-use facility for student housing will include ground-floor retail and three stories of residential space.
And as you noted, CSU’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house, built in 1926, was torn down (or “deconstructed,” as the developer says) to make way for the new project.

The photo at right shows one of the last remnants left of the fraternity as of late May – the concrete support for the flag pole with fraternity brothers’ handprints and signatures.

The ¾-acre site is planned to include a total of 54,850 square feet, tenant views overlooking our historic Oval, and covered bicycle storage (bicycle storage!).

Completion is scheduled for summer 2010.
