The Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity house sits as the construction from the expansion of Bryant-Denny Stadium draws closer. The DKE house was demolished in May 2006.


"We had mixed emotions at first, but when they showed us the plans, we were very excited about what they wanted to do with the stadium and, in hindsight, we're very pleased with the way it turned out," UA alumnus and former DKE member John McNeil said of the 23,352 square foot DKE house, priced at approximately $6.6 million.
