Many other inner-ctiy projects going on more north and at the river. I'll have to do compilations for those also. Maybe the Medical Center also.

OKC is looking good. Actually I think it is somewhat good that OKCTalk is down for a while, so we can get some updates on the national forums.

They are hoping to break ground on this 227-unit apartment complex by January, and it will be directly across the street from the Aloft Hotel that is about to break ground. Very soon the Deep Deuce area will be totally covered in 4+ story buildings that have been built since 2000. It's going to look really nice.

Developer seeks zoning change for downtown OKC apartments
By Brianna Bailey
Oklahoma City reporter - Contact 405-278-2847
Posted: 07:20 PM Wednesday, September 22, 2010

OKLAHOMA CITY – Plans for a still-unnamed, 227-unit apartment development at NE Second Street and Walnut Avenue include roughly 2,300 square feet of space on the ground floor for a gourmet-style urban grocery store, said Norman-based developer Richard McKown, lead partner of City Center Properties LLC.

City Center Properties will ask the Oklahoma City Planning Commission on Thursday for a zoning change and hopes to break ground on the four-story complex at 301 N. Walnut Ave. by January.

Amenities at the complex will include an on-site parking structure, a pool and clubhouse.

“We want people to be able to have the kind of amenities they had when they lived at home with their parents, but maybe they’re not at the point where they want the monster house in Edmond,” McKown said.

London-based architect Wade Scaramucci from the firm Allford Hall Monaghan Morris designed the apartments to have balconies. The parking structure will be hidden from view inside the complex. Allford Hall Monaghan Morris also designed the Olympic Village for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, which will house thousands of athletes and officials from around the world.

The roughly 2.7-acre chunk of land that McKown wants to build the complex on is just to the east of the historic Calvary Baptist Church building and north of the site of a proposed Aloft Hotel overlooking Bricktown.

Thumbs up Oklahoma City film, appx 2008

Here is an excellend film for your viewing pleasure - showcasing the new Oklahoma City, from the Chamber of Commerce.

Oklahoma City circa 2009

It is funny and interesting to realize that most of the pics in this film are 2 or more years old already, and the city has seen many more change

I posted this in the OKC Compilation page, but think it also deserves a mention here.

_______________________________

Here is a very nice compilation of downtown Oklahoma City, past and present. It is an interactive map with icons that link to film and pictures of buildings and developments of the city, presented by Steve Lackmeyer and the city's newsprint.

Enjoy.

Talking the NEW!!! - Myriad Botanical Gardens

I know it is not a building but it is recent development, and the Myriad Botanical Gardens has been redeveloped into OKC's premier urban park.

It has been significantly redesigned and includes numerous programming elements including an 'interactive' LED and clear view panels on the Crystal Bridge Conservatory, band shell/great lawn, Children's Interactive Rain Shower attraction, revamped Centre Stage with Stadium Seating, and the lake has been redesigned a bit less 'natural' and more 'urban' yet will still have the rather large KOI (and other species of fish, that were thriving before) among many many other attractions.

See for yourself - I'm telling you, many visits to OKC will be necessary in the next coming years as all of these project finish up. ....

Myriad Botanical Gardens is located right downtown. I hear that the LED Nightime Lighting Shows of the Crystal Bridge Conservatory can be coordinated with the LED Lighting of the very nearby Devon Tower.

Doesn't look like anyone has updated this in a long time! So much has happened downtown since 2011! Sandridge has completed its updates, Dowell has completed its updates, etc.

Here's an article lining out some stuff that's about to be constructed. That's 5, count them 5, towers about to be under construction at the same time in downtown okc!!!!!!!!!

I haven't ever tried to do a diagram addition, so if anyone else is good at that, I'd love to see them added. But the Oklahoman put this comparison in the paper not long ago.

Interesting look at the projects that should be getting started soon. I believe the TIF issues are all that are left to work out. The bus station demo is all but approved, so the Preftakes block should start to empty out soon to make room for 499. Stage Center is already gone to make room for Clayco...just gotta work out the TIF on those two.

And for those not familiar with the area, these two projects are across the street from one another, which are also just across the street from the Devon tower on the west side of the core.

Just as an update to this thread and as many, the ClayCo Towers have been canceled. I will try and update this thread later this month.
