The University of Kansas wants to take a wrecking ball to one of its residence halls.

Next week, the Kansas Board of Regents will consider the request to raze the 10-story McCollum Hall and use the site for parking. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the demolition would happen after two replacement residence halls are built.

The new five-story buildings would house 350 students each; McCollum Hall has the capacity to house 910 students.

The other residence halls on the university's Daisy Hill have been renovated. But the university says renovating McCollum Hall isn't an option because of the way the building is configured.
