Agreed with @Toddguy that I'm a little disappointed in the layouts they decided on for the block west of the main hospital... But, NCH is also showing with this plan that they can do good urban infill as well, when it suits them too.

The office building going up now at Parsons/Livingston is probably the best example, especially with the inclusion of ground floor retail. The new admin building on 18th St across the freeway also looks like it will be similarly appropriate for its context.

All in all, the plan is not bad IMO. Especially since it is building on already vacant land and that it includes NCH pledging to respect the residential neighborhoods to the south and east, as well as continuing to fund home renovations and employee incentives to buy in the area. It's not perfect, but it really could be a lot worse - (just look at the Cleveland Clinic thread).

Not to be a downer and glad that the expansion is taking place, and I know that narrow strip is not ideal, but did they have to design it like a midrise strip mall with everything at the edges and surface parking at the center? At least it is not connected to the other part by a skywalk lol. But this will do nothing for Livingston and the other side is right up to the street. Oh well. Such is life.

The Dispatch rendering posted by Pablo does seem to indicate a large surface parking lot between the planned 8-story Behavioral Health building and Livingston Avenue.  However, if you look at the rendering below from http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2016/06/10/nationwide-childrens-launching-730-million.html that was taken from the Children's Hospital presentation and the Dispatch video below, which also includes renderings from the hospital's presentation, the "parking lot area" is handled differently:





In the hospital's presentation, the "parking lot area" in the Dispatch rendering seems to be open green space.  Of course, this could just be the hospital's way of downplaying a surface parking lot in front of the planned 8-story Behavioral Health building.  But the structures on either side of the planned building are listed as "Parking Garage for Livingston Ambulatory Center" and "Parking Garage for Behavioral Health".  So if two parking garages are being built for the two Children's Hospital buildings at this site, why would a large surface parking lot also be necessary?

Now, some convenience surface parking or drop-off areas might be planned for this site.  But it looks like the hospital is committing to structured parking handling the lion's share of parking demand there.  So I wonder if the Dispatch's graphics guy used some artistic license with their depiction of the surface parking lot.
I hope you are right. Also I just noticed that the Dispatch rendering has a massive tunnel for 70(look at that weird thing..it is like a tunnel snaking into a bigger tunnel) so I am not going to trust that.

Big Lots pledges $50M to Nationwide Children's Hospital for behavioral health hospital and research



Big Lots Inc. announced a $50 million, 10-year pledge to Nationwide Children's Hospital for its behavioral health programs, gaining naming rights to both the clinical department and a planned pediatric psychiatric hospital on the Columbus campus.

It's quite a splashy debut in philanthropy: The Columbus retailer first established a corporate charitable foundation last year.

Pretty awesome comment from CEO David Campisi:

"Let's get on the offensive on this care," Campisi said. "We can get to these kids early and get them help and have beds for them instead of sending them home when therapists know we shouldn't.

"People will stand up and talk about cancer and whether they had it or someone they loved had it, (but) it's not OK to talk about mental health issues," he said. "We want to break that barrier at Big Lots. ... We felt very compelled we need to be part of this journey to allow friends and family to talk about it, whether it's an eating disorder or autism or suicide, to speak out about it and not feel ashamed."

Nationwide Children's Hospital may extend parking underneath park – but not any time soon



As it expands again, Nationwide Children's Hospital may extend its underground parking beneath Livingston Park – but not any time soon.

Columbus City Council approved an easement for the pediatric hospital Monday for an eventual parking structure underneath the park. The hospital has underground parking now, beneath new green space it created to the west of the park as part of its 2012 expansion.

Children's Hospital broke ground today on the Big Lots Behavioral Health Pavilion.  The Big Lots Behavioral Health Pavilion will be a nine-story, 386,000 square foot building that will serve as the centerpiece of Children's Hospital western campus expansion along Livingston Avenue.  Below is more information about the new building and two new renderings for this project:

Rooftop playground and courtyards encourage interaction at Nationwide Children's upcoming psychiatric hospital

Rooftop play areas and sunny courtyards are among features to stimulate group activities and interaction at what’s set to become the largest pediatric psychiatric hospital in the U.S.

Nationwide Children’s Hospital has begun construction of the $158 million, nine-story Big Lots Behavioral Health Pavilion, which will encompass inpatient and outpatient care, research and education. The 386,000-square-foot building will have 48 private rooms, with room to add more, and another 26 beds in crisis units.

Children's Hospital completed their $45 million six-story Faculty Office Building at the southeast corner of Livingston and Parsons Avenues earlier this year.  I previously posted lots of construction pics for this project earlier, but hadn't posted any pics of the completed building.  So here they are...

But first, an aerial overview of the location.  Google doesn't have an updated aerial with the new building, so here's an older aerial of the Livingston and Parsons site prior to construction.  The site is located across Livingston Avenue from the main hospital campus.  The new six-story office building replaces a former KFC at this corner that a hospital parking garage was built around.  This aerial shows the site after the hospital purchased and demo'd the KFC for temporary green space:



The new six-story Faculty Office Building contains 150,000 sq. ft. of office space for Children's Hospital at the southeast corner of Livingston and Parsons:





The ground floor includes a Panera Bread restaurant:



Here is an elevation of the Livingston Avenue side that faces the main hospital campus:



As part of the overall project, a median and signalized pedestrian crossing was added at Livingston Avenue near the parking garage entrance:



A tunnel was also added under Livingston Avenue that connects the new Faculty Office Building and the Main Hospital Campus:

Photo of the first of two parking garages on the Children's Hospital western campus expansion along Livingston Avenue.  A nine-story, 386,000 square foot Behavioral Health Pavilion is being built to the right of this parking garage.  The Behavioral Health Pavilion broke ground earlier this year - news and rendering of this western campus expansion at https://www.urbanohio.com/forum2/index.php/topic,5836.msg859962.html#msg859962.

The six-story, 200,000 square foot Livingston Ambulatory Center (located at the northeast corner of Livingston and Grant) is to the left of the parking garage in this July 31, 2017 photo from http://www.columbusunderground.com/construction-roundup-downtown-columbus-july-2017

The Children's Hospital westward expansion along Livingston Avenue - and located between I-70 and German Village - is continuing.  Children's Hospital has purchased the Columbus City Schools’ former Africentric School and the 18-acre school site west of Grant Avenue for $15.025 million.  The hospital had paid $19.2 million in 2013 for the former school’s athletic fields east of Grant Avenue, which it has used for its most recent expansion -- shown at https://www.urbanohio.com/forum/index.php/topic,5836.msg806051.html#msg806051 and https://www.urbanohio.com/forum/index.php/topic,5836.msg859962.html#msg859962 in this thread.

The hospital's immediate plan for the site is the demolition of the 127,900 square-foot school building built in the 1960's and its replacement with surface parking:

A nice view of the tons going on over at Nationwide. In the huge glare on the left you can see the recently completed Home2Suites and the Grant garage under construction:

Some updated streetviews of the Children's Hospital Livingston Ambulatory Center that opened last year.  The new $85 million six-story, 200,000 square-foot building is located at the northeast corner of Livingston and Grant Avenues on land that was formerly part of the Africentric School football field and parking lot.  After a land swap between the City and the Columbus public school district that allowed the Africentric School to relocate to a larger site on the city's east side, Children's Hospital purchased this land from the City for development of a western hospital campus expansion.

View from Livingston and Grant Avenues of the Livingston Ambulatory Center:

Took a drive around Children's Hospital today. The Behavioral Health Pavilion is quite prominent on I-70. This is the view from Fulton:



And along Livingston:



The building on 18th at Mound is moving right along too:

The former Africentric School Building at 300 E. Livingston Avenue that Children's Hospital purchased last year is now being demolished.  The Dispatch had a photo of the building's demolition in its Saturday print version.  The building was purchased along with its property west of Grant Avenue as part of Children's Hospital westward expansion along Livingston Avenue.  After the building's demolition, the property will be initially used as a surface parking lot to support the new West Campus being built east of Grant Avenue:

Below is an aerial view of the former Africentric School Building at 300 E. Livingston Avenue and the property west of Grant Avenue.  Part of the Children's Hospital West Campus Expansion has been built on the property east of Grant Avenue, but has not been updated on this aerial:


Here is the Dispatch's e-edition photo of the demolition viewed from Livingston Avenue with downtown in the background:

Taken today. It doesn't look that different from the picture of it posted on here from July. I'm sure medical buildings are involved and take longer as the completion date is listed as 2020.
