Cost.  Parking garages are expensive...  now you want to bury it..     I think it adds about 30% to the cost.
I'd venture double the cost.

Yes, I'm very good at spending other peoples' money.

Something about this story feels off.  Maybe it is just overzealous local cops looking for a big civil forfeiture payout.  But if you are shipping a tractor trailer load of industrial hemp across the country under the current laws and police climate, wouldnít you be extra careful to have all the necessary paperwork, documentation and manifest lined up proving that it is actually industrial hemp?

As an aside, why doesnít anyone build below ground parking in downtown anymore? ...  Is it cost, engineering, geological, or something else?

As buildings replace surface lots in this area, a parking garage is needed.  Overall, this seems like a good location and design.

As an aside, why doesnít anyone build below ground parking in downtown anymore?  Other than the Williams Green and the Oneok building garages, which both go several stories below ground, none have been built in downtown.  Is it cost, engineering, geological, or something else?


Now that I think about it, I guess the Price family garage at 4th & Main has a below ground level.  But then, it is being build where there was an existing hole in the ground, so I'm not sure that fully counts.

Yay, more parking! Seriously though, parking needs are necessary in this market (no amount of smart development literature will change enough minds), and this location is as good as any. Ground floor activation along Eligin with some businesses ready to move in. Sounds like it'll go up quick too. The area surrounding OneOK will be completely transformed by the end of the year. About time.

You can put someone in jail over a lax drug field test, but there is apparently only one laboratory in Washington D.C. that can do a legitimate test for marijuana.  Prosecutors and police may want to make note of that.

Amid a federal shutdown thatís slowed or stalled many government operations, four men in Pawhuska are awaiting test results from the Drug Enforcement Administration that will be the difference between being freed from jail or facing marijuana trafficking charges. They remain held in lieu of $40,000 bond.

(DEA Special Agent Rick) Salter confirmed that samples of the seized product had been collected for testing by the DEA. He estimated that it could be up to four weeks before results are available.

Another Trump Fail.  Keeping the government shut down so they can harass people at all levels.
