The University of Evansville plans to sell its 42-acre Division Street Real Estate property. It originally was used for several different UE athletic teams but the estate no longer fits within UE’s masterplan.
Over the past 20 years, UE has invested $4 million in several properties surrounding the campus, making it unnecessary for teams to travel to the Division Street Real Estate property.
UE plans to develop a new wellness and recreational center and more athletic fields; any proceeds made from the sale will be reinvested in those facilities.
In a statement, UE’s president, Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz said this:
“We are excited to continue to provide our students, student-athletes, and faculty with expanding top tier education and quality wellness, athletic and intramural facilities conveniently located on campus.
We believe the expansion of wellness and green-space will make UE an even more beautiful campus and continue to add aesthetic value to our surrounding neighborhood.”
The new owners of the real estate may decide not to keep the current athletic fields.
