Partners Lined up to Develop Large Site in Worthington
The nonprofit organization that controls 44 acres of land near the heart of Worthington has lined up a pair of partners to chart a new course for the property.
I Am Boundless, Inc. announced that Worthington Schools and National Church Residences would be working with the organization moving forward to further develop the campus, which sits at 445 East Dublin Granville Rd.
The former site of Harding Hospital, the tree-filled parcel was owned by Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center from 1999 to 2014. It was then purchased by the nonprofit Step-by-Step, which merged with I Am Boundless in 2017.
The Worthington Schools contribution could be a new elementary school (although no details are being released about the plan at this time), while National Church Residences is hoping to build senior housing on the site.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to tailor an inherited campus to better fit the needs of the children with autism we serve and their families and also to explore ways we could better engage the larger Worthington community,” said Dr. Patrick Maynard, president & CEO, Boundless. “We’re just at the beginning of the process and are excited by our engagement with two outstanding potential partners and with our Worthington neighbors and friends.”
