The master planning and facilities committee reviewed plans for two buildings that would anchor this district.
One is the Interdisciplinary Research Facility, which would include research labs, meeting spaces and cafes. The other is an Energy Advancement and Innovation Center for a technology commercialization partnership with energy management company Engie.
A proposed innovation district on Ohio State’s west campus is gaining momentum through two proposed buildings that will support research and technology commercialization.

One mammoth project Ohio State is in the midst of is along the hospital corridor.
The school will build an 840-bed replacement to the original University Hospital along with a west campus urgent care and outpatient clinic. The project also straightens and relocates Cannon Drive to the west, protecting the hospital campus from floods and creating 12 acres for development.
The most noteworthy redevelopment work that Ohio State has going are the 15+HIGH and Arts District projects along North High Street. Major changes have been taking place on the east side of High Street since 2008. That has been part of the plan since the beginning, said Amanda Hoffsis, president of Campus Partners, Ohio State’s real estate offshoot .
Three key focus areas offer exciting changes coming soon to The Ohio State University.

The event’s keynote speaker focused primarily on 15+HIGH, the Medical Center district and the future of West Campus during his address to the 500-person audience. All three districts were outlined in Framework 2.0, the university’s long-term planning vision.
