The whole 6th street corridor is going to be big for student-oriented housing.There are two more big apt complexes planned for the south side of MLK between Razorback Rd and 540. Which only means in 20 years, after those developments have run their course, maybe we will fulfill our dream of having an MLK that runs through the ghetto in Fayetteville.
It's still happening...
I hated it. The only thing worth while is that for some reason the cooks could make the greatest cookies in the world.
We used to get good dope out of Pomfret, but the best weed on campus came from a skinny little dude in Hotz.
Ya'll ever tried to suck a dick for 20 minutes? It isn't easy.
Stepped away for a bit, but here's something pretty cool, IMO. This building breaks ground this summer with a Fall 2013 completion.This is a rendering of "Founders Hall", the new dorm/mixed use building that will be a part of the redevelopment of McIlroy Hill. This building is the first from the PDF I linked a while back. They went old-school with the design, which I fricking love:http://www.clarkcontractors.net/projects/details?id=25Here's the PDF with the full plan for that part of campus: http://planning.uark.edu/capital_budgeting/content/2011_rfq_ae_mcilroyavebldg_studies.pdf
I am not claiming I am right, I am saying I don't get it.
Reminds me of this. These were built in Hitler's time.
This looks almost exactly like the old WW2 barracks that I lived at in Germany. I'm no architect but they have a word for that old communist style but I can't remember it. Meh. If it gets the job done but I sure hope they aren't spending anything extra on the monstrosity.
Ha. Well, I see the resemblance. Negative personal associations aside, I don't think that's a bad-looking building, especially for a barracks. I like it a lot better than this:
Ah, Yocum. Fond memories.
Is it? Or is it Reid looking from the northwest to the southeast. Look at the far right edge of the photo. It seems to fall into into space like what you'd see if you ere looking at Reid from that angle.Gosh, whoever thought that was good looking.
Wouldn't you see Yocum and the rest of the hill from that angle? That looks like Yocum and you are looking kind of over BWA to the mountains beyond.
I had the best setup ever at Yocum for Freshman year. Scholarship paid for full room/board that I didn't use b/c I lived in the fraternity house but I took it anyways and was the "roommate" of a guy I knew in high school. He even put sheets on the bed. Perfect hideout to get some sleep or dodge some old heads.
Resonance...metal folding chairs or hard tile floors cannot be beaten when it comes to firing off a loud fart.
That is definitely Yocum. The porch and rail gives it away. I spent three years there, trust me. You can tell in the back of the building that there is really not much behind it. Reid had the University medical clinic behind it.
Maybe someone can enlighten me. Why in the Starkville would a university want to get in the housing business?? They all do it and I have no idea how it can make financial sense at all for a university. I remember a few yrs ago after the first new one was built the architects/univ. staff etc. showed up with a new housing plan that basically wouldn't cash flow and of course the BoT told them to redo it. The capital cost, m &o cost, administrative cost, etc. Why do it?
