Neighborhood redevelopment initiatives Ohio State University has led extend beyond High Street and 15th Avenue, said Trudy Bartley , associate vice president for community relations with the school’s government affairs office.
One mammoth project Ohio State is in the midst of is along the hospital corridor.
The school will build an 840-bed replacement to the original University Hospital along with a west campus urgent care and outpatient clinic. The project also straightens and relocates Cannon Drive to the west, protecting the hospital campus from floods and creating 12 acres for development.
The most noteworthy redevelopment work that Ohio State has going are the 15+HIGH and Arts District projects along North High Street. Major changes have been taking place on the east side of High Street since 2008. That has been part of the plan since the beginning, said Amanda Hoffsis, president of Campus Partners, Ohio State’s real estate offshoot .
With the 15+HIGH project nearing the end of its nearly 10-year planning phase, the lifecycle of redevelopment at The Ohio State University continues to march onward – in this case, west. Ohio State’s next major initiative will come on west campus, where the school wants to create a wide-ranging research and innovation district where students, faculty and local startups can be centrally located.
Three key focus areas offer exciting changes coming soon to The Ohio State University.

Ohio State has received the distinction each year since it first applied in 2011. Tree Campus USA, an Arbor Day Foundation program, honors colleges and universities and their leaders for promoting healthy trees and engaging students and staff in the spirit of conservation.
The honor aligns with the Ohio State sustainability goals including a commitment to increase the ecosystem services that campus lands provide to the university community.
