    OSU constructing a plan to fix buildings

    By Gordon Gantt

    Published: Tuesday, April 12, 2011

    Although the Ohio State campus is almost constantly under construction, OSU officials say some buildings have slipped through the cracks.

    Terry Foegler, OSU associate vice president for physical planning, said 75 buildings on the Columbus campus are in need of major renovation or total replacement.

    The map with North to the left is innovative.

    I agree, much more innovative than the one where north is to the right:

    Cunz Hall is a terrifying building. It looks like it should have been the Stasi headquarters.

    I haven’t been through campus in awhile, but was surprised to see the “CBEC” building has popped up quickly (for me, anyway):

    OSU Construction Update – New Buildings, 18th Street Being Extended
    Published on May 2, 2013 9:15 am
    By: Brent Warren

    If you’ve been traveling through campus on High Street recently, you’ve probably noticed an interesting building under construction at the corner of 18th Street, across from Buckeye Donuts. And, if you’ve looked to the west down Woodruff Avenue, you’ve probably seen a much larger building rising off in the distance.

    The CBEC building is moving along really quickly. Nice to see the development along High Street too.

    Ohio State campus construction project about 3 months ahead of schedule
    September 24, 2013
    Cameron Roda

    At least one construction project on Ohio State’s campus is nearly a fourth of a year ahead of schedule. The newly constructed Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry Building is set for a grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony on Oct. 1, 2014, about three months before its original estimated completion date, said Stuart Cooper, chair of the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department.

    University District Plan: meeting tonight
    6:30 to 8:00pm
    Indianola Church of Christ
    2141 Indianola Avenue

    The University District Plan will update and replace the existing University Neighborhoods Revitalization Plan (1996) and other planning documents for the University District. The planning area boundary is Fifth Avenue on the south, the Olentangy River on the west, the Glen Echo Ravine on the north, and the railroad tracks on the east. The Plan will include a land use plan, design guidelines for future commercial and residential development, and identify capital improvements for the neighborhood. See the Plan Process Summary and Work Program document for more information on the planning process and a tentative schedule.

    Agenda
    September 24, 2013
    6:30 to 8:00pm
    Indianola Church of Christ
    2141 Indianola Avenue
    Columbus, OH 43201

    1. Presentation
    A brief presentation will be given to explain the role of a neighborhood plan, why it is being
    developed, and review preliminary input received.
    2. Input Stations
    Three “stations” will be set up to allow the public to identify top planning issues, provide input on
    land use, and suggest potential capital improvements. Staff will be available at each station to
    facilitate, discuss, and answer questions.
    o Station 1: Issue identification
    o Station 2: Draft land use concept
    o Station 3: Capital improvements

    first round of feedback has been assembled.

    I’m rather puzzled to see that low density housing is so well supported. I simply don’t understand how that’s feasible. It’s not like there’s a bunch of vacant land in the university district where they can just build one-story homes.

    Well, to be fair, medium and high density were also majority supported, though at smaller margins.

    well, lots of folks like the neighborhood feel of the neighborhood, the high density trend tends to support the animal house vibe. Remember that Vicky Village and Dennison Place went through downzoning in the late 80’s to take back their neighborhood from the rooming houses.

    The support for low density is about preserving the historic housing stock that gives the neighborhood its character – not about building a bunch of new single family homes. All you have to do is drive around for 10 minutes to see how much inappropriate, ill-considered infill and horrible remuddling has gone on – ruining the desirability of big swaths of the neighborhood. Expanding a 3-bedrooom house into 6 bedrooms and paving the back yard for parking is no one’s idea of desirable density.
