Main CU Feature: 12 Ideas Laid Out for Downtown 2010 Strategic Plan
The expansion of the Columbus Museum of Art and recent additions to the CCAD campus have sparked renewed discussion about the creation of a Creative Campus. This concept uses open space, new streetscapes, mixed-use infill and a parking garage to create an interconnected and active campus between CCAD, the Columbus Museum of Art, Jefferson Center and Columbus State.
This concept also reaches out to the edges of the Discovery District. To the east, the new open space and streetscapes will improve connections to the energy created by the Neighborhood Launch residential infill along Gay Street. To the west, infill development along Long Street, and a new Long Street Cap over I-71 will bridge the gap between the Creative Campus and the King Lincoln Theater and surrounding redevelopment. Taken together, the Creative Campus will create a new cultural neighborhood that is interconnected and vibrant.
