The University of Alabama intends to demolish a former dormitory for female graduate students that later became the College of Human and Environmental Sciences Design House.
   
The Tuscaloosa News reports that crews plan to demolish the building during spring break, March 22-29, to make way for a planned expansion of a nearby sorority house.
   
The building is near Delta and Magnolia drives between the Delta Delta Delta and Kappa Delta sorority houses. It's being razed to make way for a new Kappa Delta sorority house, according to UA's 2012 sorority expansion master plan.
   
Sidewalks around the building will be closed to pedestrians during the demolition.
