Nearly Century-Old KU Building Demolished

KSAL StaffAugust 14, 2013

The University of Kansas has demolished its nearly century-old University Relations building on the far northeast end of campus.

Over the years, the house-like structure also had served as a high school, a faculty lounge and offices for the KU Endowment.

But the university’s deputy director for Construction and Design Management, Paul Graves, says the building had become structurally unsound and posed a safety hazard. The Kansas Board of Regents rated the building’s condition as “poor” in its 2012 facilities inventory.

Graves says there are no immediate plans to build anything on the site where the building had stood since 1915. Demolition took most of last week.
