The Regional Economic Development (RED) Partnership hired Mills Group to study proposed sites in downtown Wheeling for the development of a new headquarters for the Health Plan, a non-profit community health organization currently headquartered in St. Clairsville, Ohio. The 51,000 sq ft building will be four stories in height and occupy 1.3 acres of land in addition to parking, greenspace and an amphitheater. The design will also include storm water retention through bioswales and landscaping elements that filter pollutants from surface runoff.
A major downtown development, the Health Plan structure will infill nearly a whole city block between Main and Markey to the east and west as well as 11th and 12th to the north and south. The new construction represents a renewal of the downtown built environment and a cutting edge building with sustainable design features integrated in the structural envelope and building systems.
