Ronald McDonald House

Ronald McDonald House identified a need to replace two aging facilities into one that would serve families in need at the local children’s hospitals. As such, Northstar was engaged to facilitate the long-range planning efforts and guide them through the functional program process. The information gathered during this initial phase served as the foundation for the design of the new facility. As a result of this effort Ronald McDonald House was able to confidently begin their capital campaign, and ultimately release for design and construction a 4-level, 70-guest room house complete with commercial kitchen, regional offices, and other amenities.

It was determined that the new Ronald McDonald House will be a 70-guest room house, to include shared common areas, a commercial kitchen, and an office suite to house the Ronald McDonald House regional offices. The 4-story, “L” shaped building is 72,500 SF, including the 10,000 SF regional office suite.
