15 + High


About the Project:

The long awaited 15th and High redevelopment Master Plan is now becoming a reality and things are starting to progress. The plan calls for an improved connection between the University and off-campus areas through several new components. The design includes a new pedestrian-centric public square, new mixed-use buildings, a comprehensive parking strategy and a revamped Pearl Alley that will serve as a possible new retail corridor.
