Also from that link:

.
ATHLETIC COMPLEX

The adjustment board also is scheduled to consider a proposal by John Paul II Catholic High School to build a large athletic complex in a 26-acre field next to the school on East 14th Street Extension currently used for faming purposes.
A special-use permit would allow the school to proceed with plans to build a 354-seat gymnasium, a football field and track complex with seating for 400, a 150-seat baseball field, 100-seat softball field and a soccer field, according to the plan
The complex also would include a large parking lot, the plan indicates. The the facility would be accessible from Quail Ridge Road, not 14th Street.
The property is located in the 2800 block East 14th Street between Quail Ridge and Planterís Walk subdivisions, north of Fire Tower Road. The site would be developed in conjunction with the high school, which purchased and renovated a church building next to the site.

Also, isn't that neighborhood historic?
Old is not necessarily historic. In reality the neighborhood is a relic, and the better use of the space is for off campus housing that is high density. Not just this block, but from 14th to the businesses on 10th, from Charles to Evans. With the shopping Center across 14th, new stuff likely coming to Evans, it seems like a next step in the process with that neighborhood. The Province and now The Proximity will be the start of mixed use, pedestrian friendly higher density surroundings of ECU.

And in regards to the Chancellors house....if ECU is using the houses they bought and the old Chancellors house for office space that would be a good thing. I would envision moving the Alumni Center there and surrounding it with small offices, which would be good for the neighborhood because it keeps the Historic houses and just changes the uses, which again is a good thing. Don't worry about building a new alumni center and just focus on the hotel. ECU could have done a better job with its vision, but not moving houses in a Historic District is a better thing that moving them.

Have you heard that the university is exploring using the Dial House as an alumni center or is that speculation? I think that would be a best case scenario for the school and save them some face. However, if that is indeed the case, what has become of the supposed or proposed alumni center and hotel Uptown?

I have not heard, but it just makes sense because the old Alumni house was too small...this one is much bigger and ECU already owns it.

No reason the hotel cant just be an Alumni Hotel and have some additional amenities. Honestly the house next to the hotel site is perfect for that as well, but I agree they can save face. And the old Alumni Center can be used by ECU as well.

I agree - that neighborhood is honestly a dump. Drove through there today...there are very few houses that looked cared for & not like they are on the verge of collapse. It's is mostly all college students renting these houses and the property owners are just collecting a check at this point. The best thing for that area would be to convert it to new housing IMO and student housing makes sense in that area since that's what is there already. The proposed apartments sound similar to what is across the street as there was no mention of a parking deck.

I would disagree and say ECU needs to stick with the Hotel / Alumni Center proposal...find another use for the Chancellors House. Parking would be my number one issue with the House being an alumni center, where are people going to park for events there?

Right, somewhere I thought I had seen that the neighborhood had been designated. I've biked through there on several occasions and agree that it's a dive.

People can park at the new deck by the Library.

The house would also make a fantastic B&B especially with its history. I would think the neighborhood would support that.
