Troy University Chancellor Jack Hawkins Jr. and other University leaders officially broke ground on Troy University's $8 million Fraternity Village project Saturday November 21st, 2009. The houses were completed Fall semester of 2010.
The Fraternity Village replaced outdated structures along Pell Avenue and house the University's Greek men's organizations. As part of the project, seven fraternity houses have been built and are leased from the University by each fraternity.
In all, seven 8,517 square-feet two-story houses have been built in a traditional neighborhood-styled development with classical forms used on the porches and roofline. While not all identical on the exterior, each house follows similar floor plans with bedrooms, a chapter room, a social room and laundry facilities. The social rooms are served by small warming kitchens. Each house provides a 24-bed capacity. A curved street runs behind the houses for access to the houses and provides parking for fraternity members, guests and staff. A front-side promenade walk links the houses with Pell Avenue, a common green area, and each other.
