15+HIGH Project 60% Complete

Campus Partners’ 15+HIGH project is 60% complete. The project, which sits on 9 acres, will have four main buildings, a public square and will feature restaurants, bars and retail stores. It promises to be an exciting gathering space at Ohio State’s front door.

“15+HIGH was an attempt to bring the university across High Street for the first time and begin to really engage with the neighborhood in a direct and meaningful way,” says Keith Myers, The Ohio State University’s vice president of Planning, Architecture and Real Estate.

Building A will be mixed-use and serve as home to Ohio State’s Office of Advancement and will open in May. The building features office and retail space and an event center. 

Building B1, also mixed-use, began construction in December 2020 with a targeted project completion date of February 2022. In addition, WOSU’s Public Media’s headquarters, located at 14th and Pearl, is scheduled to open in Spring 2021. A signature hotel and parking garage are also envisioned on the site but a timeline is to be determined.

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.
