Brenau University is prepared to move forward with $8 million in campus construction projects after the Gainesville and Hall County Development Authority on Monday approved issuing revenue bonds to pay for the developments. Brenau will demolish and rebuild four sorority row houses on Prior Street; construct a 72-bed, three-story residence hall in the same area; build an anatomy lab to support nursing, occupational and physical therapy programs; and construct a field house at the university’s burgeoning athletics complex on Jesse Jewell Parkway. Demolition of the existing sorority houses should be complete by the end of June, according to David Barnett, senior vice president for administration.
