About this Project:

As an extension of the downtown commercial corridor, the plan for a new outreach campus, combined with a mixture of commercial and residential opportunities, integrates the site into the historic fabric of the city of Oberlin and Oberlin College, forming a new gateway to the south on the city of Oberlin’s main street. The plan is multimodal, within an existing walkable community and intersected by the Northcoast Inland Bike Trail. A public open space is created which highlights the historic Gasholder Building, funded for development of an interpretive Center for the Underground Railroad, and a proposed stop on the bike trail.

MAS designed the neighborhood master plan to accommodate a potential outreach campus as a collaborative effort between Lorain Community College and Oberlin College.
