  15. tanenbaum, who converted the classen and the montgomery into apartments and condos, has bought the 17 story park harvey center in dt okc. the tenants are to leave the building by nov. 30. it seems he will convert this building into apts, as suggested by the letter that states that the tenants leases had been terminated "park harvey apartments" is the letter head.

"We selected Oklahoma City because of the strong medical community and the availability of skilled pharmacists and nurses, combined with the strong work ethic of the local community," the company said.
  19. didnt want to start a new thread for this. the wwe is going to host unforgiven in the city. first pay-per-view in the state.
  20. . Downtown Brownstones LLC. It's their picture of the Central Avenue Villas shown in the Daily Oklahoman. It's located on the southeast corner of Northeast 4th and Central. It's where the old Luster Hotel stood (last a florist) and was torn down four years ago. The corner is a prominent unfinished piece to the Deep Deuce Apartments that were built four years ago. And the picture shows where the old apartments end and the new ones begin. The face: Anthony McDermid, the architect who designed The Montgomery and has been aspiring to play the role of downtown residential developer in his plan with Bert Belanger and Pat Garrett. The preliminary plans won approval. The project consists of 30 for-sale units ranging from 800 to 2,500-square-feet with prices starting at $125,000. The units will have rooftop terraces and underneath parking. Groundbreaking set for this fall. 2. The Hill at Bricktown LLC. We've heard of this LLC before - that's the one led by William Canfield, the Novazyme founder and major player in the nearby Presbyterian Health Foundation Research Park. This group was selected in February for the high profile Deep Deuce hill that overlooks Bricktown, Deep Deuce and the downtown skyline. Nice property. Very nice. Urban Rneewal even left some big old trees standing on it when they cleared it of debris. Canfield's selection drew some criticism from supporters of McDermid, who felt the architects proposal was better, but that he lost out due to Canfield's association with urban renewal commissioner Stanton Young. The story doesn't say it, but apparently there was an effort to give McDermid a second chance. It didn't work: commissioner Larry Nichols, CEO of Devon Energy, explained changing redevelopers for the area at this point could delay the project for years. Canfield's design for 171 town homes was approved. 3. Urban Form LLC was approved for Northeast 4 just west of Interstate 235. This is the proposal by Grant Humphreys, son of former mayor Kirk Humphreys. Nobody seems to be alleging politics on this one. Grant Humphreys has been seen at various downtown events and gatherings, learning and watching, making plans to join in on downtown's revival. It appears as if he's been doing some more number crunching, and may be decreasing the average unit size to make sure the project is a success. The project current has 36 units ranging from 1,100 to 2,800 square feet. 4. Nobody seems to be reproting on the latest with Legacy Summit at Arts Central. It's still scheduled to begin, and it's being said the only delay left is by Urban Renewal, which didn't get utilities moved as quickly as one might expect.
  21. the tanenbuam company, which opened the montgomerey and is working on the classen, will brake ground on phase 1 of a $51 million project called the lincoln at central park. this 276 unit village- like multi family style unit will be located in mid town okc between i-44 and broadway extension on lincoln ave. the floor plan will cover 659 to 1,516 sq. ft. prices will range from $610 to $1,050 per month. its scheduled to open in spring of '06 with phase 2 to follow.
  22. i am not familiar with this area since i have never been to little rock. i-630, why would an interstate have a stop light? could you explain this for people who do not know what you are talking about?
  23. do you mean we should do the reservation thing? i dont know if that would go well. indians have thier own cities and capitals here. those reservations always seem really bad. i dont know if there is any kind of any indian fest here to show off thier work. but im sure there is. we do have the largest native american gathering anywhere here each year. so im sure it has art there.
