    This project involves a complete renovation and addition to the existing Driving Park Recreation Center as well as a new 8,500 sq. ft. outdoor pool.  The existing site had a small bunker style recreation center, connected via a walking path to a second park where an existing pool had been closed since 2008. Moody Nolan conducted a feasibility study and determined that combining the building and the pool on the recreation center site allowed for greater savings for cost efficiency, allowing pool locker rooms to be used during winter basketball events, as well as savings on utilities, staffing and parking.  The project adds 19,000 sq. ft. of new space, with a new high school regulation gymnasium with spectator seating, fitness spaces, offices, day-lit entrance, activity rooms and pool support spaces with much more openness and natural light.  The existing undersized gym was renovated into a new dance room and meeting room plus storage.

    In the heart of downtown Columbus stood a failing, two block long shopping mall. The city purchased the mall and prepared a master plan to redevelop the site. This master plan called for a nine-acre park, the edges of which were to be left relatively clear in expectation that new buildings would eventually be built. Moody Nolan served as architect for all phases of the redevelopment of the site.
