Ball State University (full disclosure: my employer) is seeking to acquire property adjacent to campus in order to build facilities that will “house 50 dorm rooms, 100 hotel rooms, a series of conference rooms, a student-run retail area and two restaurants.”
The expected cost of the project is around $25 million. There is one parcel of property in the plan Ball State does not yet own: a copy shop owned by Chris Hiatt, a local businessman. As of this writing Mr. Hiatt and the university have not come to an agreement.
