Well we may see Dish Network set up shop on Brookside in the old Blockbuster building.

The great thing about Dish Network is that I canceled it in 2008 and got cable.

Noticed the front to the old Ida Red space was remodeled to create a sheltered front patio area.  Any idea if anything is going in?

Passed by today and saw an Ark Wrecking truck out front with some junk in the back.  It was just a regular pick-up truck, nothing like a crane with a wrecking ball.

That's too bad...   Wink

I usually cringe when I see their trucks, especially downtown, but they would be welcome at this location.

The real estate transaction column of the World's Business section said that Bank of the West leased 3k sq ft of space at 3559 S. Peoria.  Google Maps puts that as the ex-Blockbuster.

I like Dish. You can get SIRIUS.  

My cable has increased $25 in 4 years (%78/4=%19.5 a year...push profit inflation)  for basic and that with fewer channels today. Cox suckers.

Like I stated before, phone store, bank and a still to be announced third tenant in Blockbuster.

Tequila time yet? Thinking about having a sip or two in honor of the day. Wink

Awful.  That corner deserves much better.

Not really. The whole area deserves decent restaurants, service and retail. Bars need to go downtown into the Boozerie area.

I would argue Brookside is a bigger nightlife district than downtown, even with the Blue Dome and Brady districts combined as "downtown". 

I just prefer local businesses and walkable urban design.  Developments like the Consortium, Center One, the rebuilding of the old Delta Cafe, etc. have greatly contributed to making Brookside a destination, not what they are doing with the old Blockbuster.

Well, it's not making things any worse.  It's still a neighborhood, after all, as well as a destination.  I understand the frustration, but not every landowner is playing SimTulsa.

I would argue it is worse than the current building because it has almost no chance of ever becoming anything else.  Yet another bank in Brookside does nothing to add interest to the area and creates a little dead zone a night.
