Great joke by UC!  Some people even bought it.  Yes, the outside will be made by reclamed toaster ovens.  That's great.

Big plans will cost big money at UC
Cliff Peale, CIN 9:04 p.m. EDT April 15, 2014



Expect a fundraising campaign soon to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for the University of Cincinnati.

UC's overlapping priorities range from athletics to medicine, all projects the college says will allow the university to compete nationally. But their price tags range from $10 million to more than $100 million during the next half-dozen years.

Maybe slightly off topic for specific projects, but this diagram from Envision Baltimore almost perfectly describes the development pattern at UC.  I would say the analysis ends at where UC was about 10 or 15 years ago however.  A further step 7 would likely talk about the spilling out of hypertrophic development in the surrounding community as the pressure to add student housing becomes too great, thus leading to further tension with surrounding residents and more push-back from downzoning NIMBYs and historic preservationists.

UC's President Santa Ono just tweeted:

  • "UC will renovate Scioto Hall and build mid-rise residence hall/dining hall adjacent to Scioto to accommodate growing student body."
  • "UC will renovate historic Health Professions Building to serve as Interdisciplinary Teaching/Research space for health science colleges"
  • "UC will begin the design of a new home for the College of Allied Health Science on the current site of Wherry Hall"

Great news on all three fronts.
  • Scioto Hall looks so drab now next to the renovated Morgens. I assume they'll use the same all-glass glazing and it'll look great.
  • The historic Health Professions Building will make for a beautiful renovation, and will provide a nice contrast to the rest of the modern new construction on the medical campus.
  • Wherry Hall isn't remarkable and I have no problem with it being torn down for a new building, as long as the new one is well designed.

Scioto will look identical with the exception of being a different color. If I'm remembering correctly it'll be less blue and more green. A subtle difference but enough to be noticeable. I wonder if the new residence hall next to Morgens and Scioto will be designed by the same firm who did the renovations and tie into the stylistic cues of the renovations

This misspelled site plan from the architect has some sort of crude mass in the place of where the new residence hall and dining hall will be. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes of this.
