TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Burt Reynolds Hall will soon be under new ownership.

The Florida State University Boosters Club is selling the student apartments to another group of Noles: The FSU Research Foundation.

The 60-unit building once housed the football players but has had little use after players moved down the street,to the modernized Champions Hall.

FSU is expected to buy Burt Reynolds Hall at a sticker price of $3.7 million.

Kerry Peluso, the FSU Assistant Vice President for Research and Finance, says the building, "represents an investment for the research foundation. The Foundation is currently evaluating the property, and any decisions about its future use would be approved by the board.”

The sale is expected to be made official at their March 2 board meeting.

The hall got its name from FSU alumnus Burt Reynolds, who played football at FSU before he became a renowned actor.

The sale is expected to be made official at their March second board meeting.
