  1. Here's some new pics from the Myriad Gardens.
  2. I never took them down, the links just stopped working for some reason. The Field of Chairs at the Oklahoma City National Memorial Santa Fe Station, northern terminus of Amtrak's Heartland Flyer
  3. The Survivor Tree, Oklahoma City National Memorial
  4. I've posted it before. It's not a new one.
  5. Corporate Tower, Oklahoma Tower, and Robinson Renaissance
  6. Restoration in progress on the historic Skirvin Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City. (Photos by Doug Loudenback). And here is the website for the project: The Skirvin Hilton
  7. The Gold Dome was bank until about 5 years ago. Bank One (occupant at the time) wanted to tear it down and build a Walgreens (!), so preservationists threw a fit and it was fortunately saved. It is at the center of the Asian District, so a Vietnamese doctor purchased the building and it is now a cultural center. Here is another pic:
  8. Some OKC pics as requested by another poster: The Oklahoma City Museum of Art, home of the largest collection of Chihuly glass sculpture Santa Fe Station, the northern terminus for Amtrak's Heartland Flyer looking up at First National Center and City Place Some that I didn't take: downtown at night looking north on Classen with the Gold Dome in the foreground The Museum of Art, Festival of the Arts, and the Deep Deuce neighborhood
  9. The Oklahoma City Museum of Art, home of the largest collection of Chihuly glass sculpture
  10. How does it work? Is it just whoever gets there first on any given day?
  11. escalators in parking garage, Will Rogers World Airport
  12. a small girl explores the platform while waiting to get on the Amtrak Heartland Flyer bound for Fort Worth
  13. Yeah I had noticed that my other pictures have disappeared. They were linked from facebook and it seems after several months the linking no longer worked. The pictures haven't moved on facebook, so I don't know what happened. I will have to move them to photobucket and start over. Feel free to continue to add pics for now while I get that taken care of.
  14. fountain in downtown's Kerr Park
  15. I have a bunch of OKC pics that I need to put on here, but haven't had time, so rather than doing them all at once, I will do them one picture a day. replica of Wiley Post's airplane, the Winnie Mae, at the Oklahoma History Center
  16. Interesting question... Any other pending Kerr-McGee projects? We already know that they ARE continuing the Braniff Towers apartment conversions. Anything else?
  17. That's a lot of signs to replace, but I guess somebody's making their living off it.
  18. I noticed those signs and thought they were new. I don't know what was "stupid" about the old ones though. I think most people usually know what state they are in.
  19. Here's a couple renderings of the Kerr-McGee Belltower that is being built on the Oklahoma River.
  20. I'm hearing rumors that another hotel project will be announced in the next couple months. That's all I know. Thanks!
  21. Block 42 now has a showroom in Automobile Alley (Broadway north of Downtown). They have animations playing on a 10x6 screen in the front window and if you go inside you can see a lot of the the amenities that will be in the flats and townhomes. I think this is a great marketing tool. There's a lot of visibility. Also, the same developer has bought the old downtown airpark on the river and plans a massive mixed-use development. I'll post a thread with the article later.
  22. Actually that's a side view of the capitol if you look at how narrow it is and how there is no big boulevard directly in front of it. It IS a view from The Classen. Oh, and that is a great site for Block 42. We should make that more visible for out-of-towners. It may not be high rise, but it's nice stuff.
