Thanks to a tipster for sending in a few snapshots of construction of the new three-story Norton Hospital Radiation Center on the corner of East Broadway and Floyd Street. I first wrote about the project when the design was announced in January 2010. Now we have quite a bit of steel in place. The structure was designed by Karlsberger of Columbus, Ohio.

Does anyone remember when Norton Healthcare pledged that this land would be part of a park that would extend from Broadway to Chestnut? I’m sure you could find it in the CJ archives.
I remember that plan – part of why they’re tearing down all those buildings… I’m actually a little glad it’s not happening exactly as planned as there is a lot of wasted open space in the Medical Center that could really go a long way to create more meaningful park space. No need to make it look suburban.
As far as I know, there will still be some park space at least where they tore down that blue building. They were planning on building a new building there atop the garage with a park out front. Not sure if the linear concept is still a go, though. Why not redesign the open space directly across the street?
