The University of Akron trustees approved a $22.7 million purchase of the Quaker Square plaza and hotel.
It makes demolition of student housing feasible near East Exchange, where UA will construct an on-campus stadium.
The trustees also approved the naming rights to the Field House, which is now called the Stile Field House in honor of Louis and Freda Stile, successful Akron entrepreneurs who have donated nearly $5.2 million to UA since 1952, including a recent $4.65 million endowment to benefit the men's basketball and football programs.
