NC State’s Eta Kappa chapter of Delta Gamma will be the third Greek organization to begin building at Greek Village. In February, Delta Gamma presented their design for a new house on lot 4 as part of Phase 1 of the development project. The design was met with very favorable response from the Greek Village Housing Association and approved. Campus Design and Review Panel also reviewed the design and approved on February 26, 2014.
Located at the corner of Leadership and Greek Village Drives, lot 4 is next to the Kappa Delta house and across from the volleyball court. Plans for 20,400 square foot house include 40 beds, house director suite, study lounge, library, living room, multipurpose room, commercial kitchen, snack kitchen and covered patio.
The estimated $3.5 million home is designed by Cline Design Associates, PA. The Raleigh-based architects are known for “crafting living environments that promote community involvement and provide comfortable, engaging and sustainable housing opportunities,” according to their website. Cline Design Associates also designed other local communities, including College Inn, Crescent Cameron Village Apartments and The Link at Glenwood.
Greek Village is a 5-phase development project with 20 lots for fraternity and sorority chapter houses. Plans also include a row of Greek townhouses, community center, and amphitheater. A tentative completion date is set for 2022. For more information about Greek Village, visit the Project Overview page.
Delta Gamma is a Panhellenic sorority with more than 142,000 members nationally on more than 145 college campuses. Alumnae span across the United States and Canada. Founded by Anna Boyd Ellington, Eva Webb Dodd and Mary Comfort Leonard in 1873 at the Lewis School for Girls in Mississippi, the organization “places a strong dedication on personal values and standards, academic excellence, leadership and service,” according to their website.
During November, construction crews began adding the finishing touches to the Sigma Nu fraternity house. The house should be complete by mid-December and is slated for a January 2014 opening for the spring semester.
Crews completed the floors, including staining and adding carpet and vinyl composition tile (VCT). They are finishing painting, cabinetry and wood trim next month. Elevator installation and telecommunication wiring is also in the final phases and will provide phone, internet and cable TV access for residents in each room.
Outside, crews completed landscaping the fraternity house yard. They added fresh sod, new bushes and mulch to define the outdoor space. Gutters, downspouts and sidewalks were also finished to give the exterior a clean and polished look.
A black granite plaque with the Greek Sigma Nu letters is set in the pavers to mark the front entrance of the new fraternity house. A rock set in pavers on the left of the entrance was also completed this month. In the rear of the house, crews finished assembling the stairs leading to the balcony and the decorative railings.
The Beta Tau chapter house includes a library, activity room, alumni room, study and living space for 37 men in addition to the dining room and kitchen. The new house will also be LEED certified, one of the only fraternity houses in the nation to do so. Sustainable features include an energy-efficient HVAC system and lighting, recycled materials and low VOC paints.
