Best of luck, Oklahoma strong in 2021


Oklahoma City and Tulsa metropolitan areas represent 2.4 million people; over half of the state's estimated 4 million population.

Looking forward to a reset of our economies in both of Oklahoma's two largest metropolitan areas.  The year 2020 has been a lost opportunity as well as a setback for improvements here in Oklahoma City.  Several proposed projects have been scrapped; our NBA team plays an abbreviated schedule with no fans in attendance.

BOK Center Arena, Tulsa

Oklahoma's NBA team, the BOK Center Arena in Tulsa has been a second home with a strong base of Tulsa season ticket holders that made it possible for Oklahoma businessmen, Clay Bennett & George Kaiser to acquire and maintain a major professional sports franchise in Oklahoma.


The Oklahoma City Thunder has had consecutive sellouts in Chesapeake Energy Arena of 18,203 since 2010; Oklahoma Sooners' NCAA football as well have had consecutive sellouts of 86,112 in Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium since 1999.

Yes, 111 Greenwood is nice infill, but I can't help but think it looks like a hotel.  It along with Hogan Assessment adds some nice density to that section of 1st street.

wait - it's not a hotel? I'm not a rocket scientist but I did stay at a 111 Greenwood last night....

anyhoo - the lights add a little to a fairly blah building but the original brick facade rendering was a lot nicer. I mean it's nicer than a parking lot but just barely. I suppose if they can't move the apartments it can always be a nice climate-controlled mini-storage.

Oklahoma City MAPS 4 Coliseum


    The MAPS 4 fairgrounds coliseum receives $9 million from MAPS 3 leftover funds.
            The Oklahoma City Council voted to allocate about $33 million in additional MAPS 3 sales tax collections with $9 million to fund the new fairgrounds coliseum.

    Fairgrounds executives pitched plans last summer for including a $95 million coliseum in MAPS 4 to replace the 55-year-old Jim Norick Arena.

    The city council settled on giving the fairgrounds $63 million but included, in a “statement of intent,” the expectation that MAPS 4 funding would
    be supplemented by “at least $25 million in hotel tax revenues as well as funding from MAPS 3 excess funds.

MAPS 4 Diversion Hub receives land gift and $20 million operational fund.


Artist's rendering of a proposed $17 million diversion hub that would "relieve pressure on the Oklahoma County jail and help low-level offenders establish a more productive life." [PROVIDED]

     Philanthropist Sue Ann Arnall intends to donate a 1.6-acre tract downtown for the MAPS 4 Diversion Hub, a gift that could be worth $1.1 million or more.

     A MAPS 4 advisory committee and the MAPS 4 Citizens Advisory Board will review Diversion Hub plans, including the location. The final decision will rest
     with the city council.



    It is one of four MAPS 4 projects with a strong focus on criminal justice reform, and the Arnall Family Foundation has pledged $20 million for an operations fund.

     The Diversion Hub opened in temporary quarters last June at 220 NW 10.   As the concept evolves, Executive Director Damon Britton said Wednesday, the focus
     has been on individuals in pretrial proceedings and those at risk of having probation revoked.

     Arnall told The Oklahoman last year that inspiration for the center came from a realization that parents' incarceration often leaves children in distress.--Oklahoman, January 17, 2021

111 Greenwood looks pretty sharp now. Just about finished.

Not quite like their original rendering  Wink  Nice infill though, are there any future plans for the parking lot on the NE corner of 2nd & Greenwood?
