WOSU PUBLIC MEDIA
The new facility for WOSU Public Media is expected to be a state of the art, digitally functional, flexible operation that addresses the future of public media content creation for broadcast and online access. The project site is located at the northeast corner of 14th Avenue and North Pearl Alley, which is currently used as a surface parking lot. The new facility will be approximately 60,000 gross square feet and roughly 50,000 square feet of various program elements, including television and radio studios, content production areas, a media learning lab, administrative and staff collaborative work places, and support spaces. It will be four stories above grade with one level below grade, a fourth-floor terrace, and a roof top mechanical penthouse area. The ground floor level will house a Community Studio. Continuing WOSU’s rich history of community engagement, this element will be visible and accessible and help connect the existing neighborhood fabric with the new 15th and High District development.
