Gonzaga University is demolishing four houses on campus, and the land will be turned into open space, according to permit data at the city.

Two of the homes were built in 1898, the other two in the 1940s, and they were used for various purposes. Following renovations of the Humanities Building and Robinson Hall in 2018, the programs the houses held were relocated and the houses left empty.

University spokeswoman Mary Joan Hahn said there no specific plans for the properties and they will be put into temporary use as green space.

The homes are at 324 and 328 East Sharp Ave., 1027 N. Hamilton Ave and 605 E. Boone Ave. Two of the homes are owned by the Corporation of Gonzaga University, and the other two by Gonzaga University.

Rob’s Demolition, of Spokane, is doing the work.
