15 + High


The new 15+HIGH will open the university’s front door and connect to the heart of the University District. Led by Campus Partners, the project realizes a shared vision after decades of planning in conjunction with the City of Columbus and nearby neighborhoods. The project includes a new public square created by realigning 15th Avenue on a direct axis with The Oval. Four main buildings and a new parking garage will anchor the project site. Building A, set to open Spring 2021, and Building B will be mixed-use. A signature hotel and parking garage are envisioned on the site but a timeline is to be determined. WOSU Public Media’s newly built headquarters located at 14th and Pearl will open in Spring 2021.

The project will transform Pearl Alley into a vibrant, safe, urban pedestrian alley. By reclaiming bricks and salvaging materials from old buildings, Campus Partners aims to create a home for new dynamic ventures. Architectural elements east of High Street will complement the construction at Ohio State, adding spaces for restaurants, bars and retail stores in the vibrant new neighborhood.
