116 South Boundary Street

c. 1993
Home of the University of North Carolina Press, Brooks Hall is a one-story, gable-on-hip-roofed building with a basement level at the rear. The building has aluminum siding with a brick veneer on the lower one-third of the wall and deep eaves. It has paired vinyl casement windows and one-light French doors opening to an uncovered porch that extends across the left (south) end of the façade with a wood railing. There is a projecting, gable-on-hip-roofed wing near the right (north) end of the façade and immediately to its left is an inset entrance bay with full-height glass filling the entire bay. There is a projecting bay near the left end of the façade, a shallow balcony on the left elevation, and a gable-on-hip-roofed wing at the rear. The site slopes down to the rear revealing a basement level at the left rear (southwest) corner. A stone wall extends along the South Boundary Street side of the property. This is like the building that was noted as under construction in the 1992 survey.

In the 2015 survey, this was deemed a Noncontributing Building.
