    412 Welch Ave - What's being built there?

    It looks like 3 or more lots, which I think had houses on them, have been demolished.

    Thanks ahead of time!

    I live in 412 for almost 3 years of college. Couldn't hardly believe it when I heard they were tearing those down.

    I never thought ole' Doc would give up those houses, especially 412!

    We lost 442 last year too. It was tragic to say the least.

    Probably will see more of the houses in that area go as ISU grows. Could be good for campustown though. More foot traffic will be helpful for all the businesses in that area.

    Highly doubtful...not too many jurisdictions in Iowa like using that.

    535 was my home for 2 years, the silos behind us also had some great friends.
    Hope those are always preserved.
