Oklahoma City convention center pics via OKCTalk.com


                                             Surface parking above is filled with worker's vehicles associated with the convention center complex.
 The new 1,100 space Convention Center Parking Garage wrapping up construction will provide convenient parking priority for the Omni & convention center.

                                                   Ground crews continue work on the land & streetscape that surrounds the convention center.

I've had this same thought too - would love to see the old Forum space knocked down and reconnect some of the street grid and pedestrian access. The old Forum creates a huge pedestrian barrier between the CBD and the Arts district north.

If Williams was able to consolidate in the tower and then redevelop the Forum and parking lots they own too next door that'd be pretty great for downtown. Not sure if that will ever happen though.

I hope to see Main restored from 1st to 3rd sometime in my lifetime.  The section between 2nd & 3rd will be challenging but is doable if the hotel is reconfigured.  How awesome would it be though to see Main with its stellar streetscape between 3rd and 6th continue all the way through downtown from Cainís all the way down to Veterans Park?

A 200,000-square-foot kitchen? It's for Mom's Meals, coming to Oklahoma City

      

                                                    Crews have begun work on a 200,000-square-foot Mom's Meals kitchen and food prep center at 6849 S Rockwell Ave.
                                                    The Iowa-based company said the first phase of the $17,750,600 plant will be complete by the end of the 2021.

                                              ...Mom's Meals, which produces refrigerated home-delivered meals in the health care market ó and which caused some southern
                                              Oklahoma seniors to turn their nose up last year ó is building a 200,000-square-foot kitchen/food prep facility in Oklahoma City.

                                              The Rockwell Avenue plant will initially employ about 125 people and eventually up to 550, he said. Anderson declined to discuss
                                              details of state incentives. The Oklahoma Commerce Department did not have any information to release Thursday afternoon.

                                              Momís Meals provides prepared, refrigerated meals delivered directly to people's homes through Medicaid, Medicare and programs
                                              to support long-term, chronic, and post discharge care...

Anyone know if there's been any progress made with the old FinTube building to the south of this? Wasn't there a RFP put out last year for developers?

Or tear it down and allow Main to go through from 1st to 2nd, and build a new building in the future on the new block-sized lot between Main, Boulder, 1st and 2nd.

Some are moving to a 6 story building the state has purchased at 201 W 5th.  Not sure how many that are currently downtown are staying downtown or moving to other locations with the VA moving in.  Seems like a net benefit for downtown though, especially as the VA and OSU Med Center grow over time.

That's right, I forgot about that. Seems like a big chunk of them will at least remain downtown then. I think that'd be a good reuse of that building too it's been mostly vacant for a while and just needs some cap ex to make it functional again. I was always worried this one would get knocked over given it's pretty ugly and is already surrounded by parking lots. It does play a role in the street wall for 5th though so I'm glad it survived.

Truly surprised, but Langford actually showed a tiny little bit of decency.

Oklahoma City Testing and Immunization Center





The building will be located next to the Health Department's offices on Northeast 63rd Street and will cost roughly $7 million dollars, financed by municipal bonds.

Dependent on staffing and supplies, the facility is expected to serve between 2,000 to 4,000 people a day and has the ability to operate 24-7.


Scheduled to open in July 2021 as part of the Oklahoma County Health campus, this 3-bay drive-thru testing and immunization facility will be located just north of Remington Park--there will be a neighboring warehouse planned.

I've never seen a company do more remodeling of space and shuffling of employees than Williams.

Any idea why they would be moving employees from the WRC into the Tower?  Do they have new plans for the WRC space?
