Columbus State Breaks Ground for New Culinary Arts Center

A new culinary arts center is in the works at Columbus State Community College in Columbus, OH. The new Mitchell Hall development will serve as a gateway to the college and as an innovative space for students studying hospitality and culinary arts.

The 80,000-square-foot building will feature several teaching kitchens, a functional bakery, spaces for dining and socializing, gardens, classrooms, and a large multipurpose outdoor space. Mitchell Hall is being designed as a space to foster collaboration and socialization among students, and as a space that will work to address issues like nutrition and food insecurity within the community.
