The University of North Dakota is looking to raze 39 apartment units in the latest cost savings move. The Stanford Road and State Street apartments date back to 1959 while the Northwestern Drive units were built in 1966. An assessment of the properties suggests tearing the buildings down will save 630-thousand dollars in operating costs and 430-thousand in repair costs. U-N-D has contacted the North Dakota Historical Society to make sure the apartments have no significant historical significance. The State Board of higher education’s Budget and Finance Committee approved the plan this week. The recommendation will be reviewed by the full Higher Ed Board.
