WVU pursues million-dollar Sunnyside land purchase

West Virginia University is close to finalizing the purchase of a large portion of property in Morgantown’s Sunnyside neighborhood at a cost of roughly $14.5 million.  Details of the arrangement were included in a report submitted Sept. 24 by the university to the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Government and Finance.  The agreement includes 39 different parcels of land located on Jones, Grant and University avenues, Quay and Overhill streets, Houston Drive and others in the surrounding area of Morgantown.  WVU wants to use the properties to provide students with safe, affordable housing and “amenities” that are close to its downtown campus, according to the document.
