COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An arts district Ohio State University envisions as the new “front door” to its Columbus campus is a step closer to reality.

A committee of university trustees late last month approved $147 million for design services and construction for a projected estimated to cost $162 million.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the district would be located near 15th Avenue and High Street. Plans include a renovated Weigel (WY’-guhl) Hall to house the School of Music, and a new building for the Department of Theatre that will house a Moving Image Production program.

Renderings shared with the trustees’ Master Planning and Facilities committee showed a new black box theatre, a recital hall for the School of Music, a proscenium theater and rehearsal spaces.
