Wanna take any bets on that?  We still suffer from Deranged Trump Syndrome about Muslims....


We're preaching to same choir.

That's why I want to go on record for welcoming Afghans to our state.  OKC & Tulsa will benefit in the long term once you turn the Afghans into
productive working citizens who contribute to the economy.

We have discussed this in the past. I wish you could find some pictures.



Exactly like that!  Only a couple doors away.   I have some old home movies that I am slowly scanning - one shows Mom and two kids getting onto the trolley one day.  Am also going through about 450 lbs of old family photos and I know there are some pics of the place in that, IIRC with the trolley hardware shown in the background.  I just took possession of the archives about 3 months ago or so.  Probably 15-20 thousand pics in all.!  Most loose, but about 60 large photo albums!  And one hanging family record "picture" started in about 1875.   Geez...  This takes way more time than I expected at the beginning - a 7" reel of 8mm film takes about 4 hours to digitize!   But they turn out as good as the film can possibly be, so very pleased with that!

And a 1950 Ford we had at the time.  Dad had gotten rid of the 47 Pontiac (yellow) by that time.   He circled back around in 1966 and bought another yellow Pontiac, though.

Couple of interesting highlights in film so far - several minutes of Air Force uncle who was killed a couple months later in test plane incident in San Diego.  He survived WWII and Korea as fighter pilot just to be brought down by some prototype guidance hardware on a test jet!   I met him, but don't really remember him.

And there is a drive by moment of trip through Louisiana at harvest season - showing people out in a cotton field picking cotton, dragging the long bags behind them.  Another showing sugar cane being cut by hand, and close to a field where it is being cut by one of those new-fangled harvesting machines!.   Some kind of combine mower.

So much potential in the 18th & Boston/Cincinnati area with the MV trail, hopefully we see some trail-side development there like you see along the Katy Trail in Dallas.  

I know the Knoll at Maple Ridge is dead but hopefully something like it can be revived in that location and along 18th where the Louisianne building used to be.  These would be immediately popular especially on nice weather days.  Even more so once the pedestrian bridge is completed and you can bike directly across the river

Elliot Nelson is hosting a neighborhood meeting next Wednesday about this project. Here is what Elliot put on Facebook:

Quote
I’m hosting a neighborhood meeting/Q&A next Wednesday, September 22, at 1810 S. Cincinnati Ave. at 6:30pm to discuss a rezoning application we’ve filed on the property. Despite being a commercial building since 1932, the building is zoned for multi-family residential use. Our intent is to rehab the building and turn it back into a commercial use, but in order to do so, we need to rezone the property as mixed-use. As part of the rezoning process, INCOG has asked us to host a neighborhood meeting to talk about the project and answer questions. Please stop by if you’re interested. McNellie’s Group will be on hand with adult beverages and Rose Rock Microcreamery will have ice cream for the kids. Hope to see you there and I can’t wait to bring this building back to life!

Neat. I didn't look carefully, but I don't see any indication of which restaurant concept it will include. I wonder if it will be the first stand alone version of their asian restaurant that they've been incubating next to their HQ. Still haven't tried that one out yet. In any case, that's another step forward for this up and coming little district.

I didn't see any mention of this here.  It appears McNellie's Group is wanting to open a restaurant and add some office space at 18th and Cincinnati.

Oklahoma City's Mercy Hospital Complex Continued Growth

Expanded addition will increase hospital licensed bed total to 422



 4300 West Memorial Road

The Love Family Women’s Center will be a 175,000-square-foot, four-story building on the campus of Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City. It will feature an obstetrics emergency department staffed by obstetricians.

Forty percent of the $98 million project is funded through generous local donors. When construction is complete in fall 2023, Mercy will have a total of 73 patient rooms to serve women in the new center, increasing the capacity for deliveries by 40%.

A large portion of this project was generously funded through Mercy Health Foundation Oklahoma City. It is the largest fundraising campaign in the history of Mercy.

  

The family of Tom and Judy Love gave a $10 million lead donation to this project. Cathy Keating a co-chair with Judy Love led the way in raising more than $30 million toward the $40 million fundraising goal.

                                                                               Project estimated cost:  $98 million

If you're asking if the new location is open yet, it's not. Construction is well under way, but still looks like several months left to go.
