WSU Education Village

Our bonding request is a bold, responsive plan to renovate three buildings and environs (Wabasha Hall, Wabasha Rec and the Cathedral School) into an Education Village of the future that will be designed with integrated, flexible, state-of-the-art learning and teaching spaces. Labs, classrooms, offices, meeting and community spaces will take a cohesive, sensible form and provide space for the extraordinary preparation of extraordinary teachers and school professionals.

Detailed Description

 

Phase I

Phase I of the project would cost $5.9 million. This funding was approved during the 2013-14 legislative session in 2014. In this phase we will work to identify needs and resources, as well as work with a design
firm and/or architect to develop a plan.

Phase II

Phase II of the project will focus on the renovation of 82,696 sq.ft. between Cathedral Elementary School building (built in 1929), Wabasha Recreation Center (built in the 1920s) and Wabasha Hall (built in the 1950s). We plan to repurpose and reuse old, vacant buildings, renovating them for shared community, school and university usage that will renew the surrounding neighborhood. This new space will be used to create new specialty labs and classrooms serving all education programs. Phase II will require an additional $25.3 million, for a total estimated project cost of $31.2 million.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
