Renovation at Pomerene Hall reaches final stages

Moving day is not far off for the new tenants of Pomerene Hall on the campus of The Ohio State University.

A tour last week reveals that more than a year of construction has turned one of the classic buildings on campus into a modern monument to advanced teaching and learning. Through the clamor of nail guns, circular saws and drills, the renovations are reaching their final stages.

Pomerene is the future home of Ohio State’s Translational Data Analytics Institute, Undergraduate Data Analytics Major and the Department of History of Art. The $59M State Capital funded project is part of the restoration of the historic Mirror Lake District, which includes the renovation of Oxley Hall and Browning Amphitheater.

The revived building will soon become a home again. History of Art faculty and staff are expected to move into Pomerene Hall by the end of May. Data Analytics members are expected to get the keys to their new offices in early June.
