Check Out What Remains Of WMU’s North Hall On Prospect Hill
Have you seen this building on Western Michigan University's Campus? It looks like someone's art project but this is what it really was. The three-story building, originally served as WMU's school of business, as well as housing the campus's first library. During the 2014-15 renovations they demolished most of the buildings on what is called Prospect Hill in Kalamazoo to make way for the renovations on the East Hall/Alumni Center at a cost of $15 million. Including North Hall.
In a story published in Saving Places, they talked about North Hall stating,
"The North Hall -- which is a beautiful building -- has a reading room and a large fireplace," he says. "We could certainly put the welcoming student orientations there, and at one point, some of the developers proposed turning those [into] condominiums for alumni."
While they could not save the whole building, enough money was raised to save the fron entrance, Check out the pictures of it here.
Here is a video of the demolition process when they first started on North Hall.
