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. Keith Myers, Ohio State’s vice president of Planning and Real Estate, offered a glimpse into the university’s future development during Wednesday’s Columbus Business First 2019 Commercial Developers Power Breakfast.
The event’s keynote speaker focused primarily on 15+HIGH, the Medical Center district and the future of West Campus during his address to the 500-person audience. All three districts were outlined in Framework 2.0, the university’s long-term planning vision.
On Saturday (2/16), beginning early morning and continuing through late afternoon, all parking spaces to the east of the 33 W. 11th building will be closed for a crane lift. Alternate ADA parking is available in adjacent lots. Access to the building and traffic through the alley will be maintained.
On Monday (1/21), beginning early morning and continuing through mid afternoon, the area between Wiseman Hall and Biological Sciences Greenhouses will be closed for a crane lift. The south sidewalk will be closed to pedestrians, who will be directed to use the north sidewalk. Signage will be in place to indicate pedestrian detours, noted by the dashed lines on the map. Everyone is reminded to exercise caution around construction areas, to cross roadways only at designated areas, and to follow instructions of traffic control officials. ADA access to both buildings will be maintained.
Beginning Monday (1/7) early morning and continuing through January 25, a temporary detour (indicated by the dotted line) of the Olentangy Trail north of King Ave. will be constructed to allow for utility work. Signage will be in place.
