Cimarex to move into new 15 floor office building across the street from the BOK center as part of the Place One hotel development.

I didn't see that coming, great to see this moving forward.  I can't wait to see more details/renderings of the entire development, especially the office tower.  It looks like the planned hotel is at 3rd & Cheyenne.

Looks as if the rendering is taken from the perspective of the NW corner of the BOK Center at the base.

It also looks like there are two towers, one office and one hotel about the same height

This is very good and surprising news (with all the necessary caveats of believing it when I see dirt being moved, etc.).  Lost in the discussion the past couple of years of downtown housing and entertainment development has been the need for more workers downtown.  Building lots of housing downtown is great, but the best way to create demand for and fill up such housing is to have more people working downtown.

While Cimarex was already located downtown, this gives it more room to grow and adds to the limited stock of class A office space downtown.

An office building that is 2/3 preleased sounds like an excellent anchor for this entire development, whereas before it appeared like the anchor would be a hotel.  If this development could just get started it could be coming on line just in time for the economic turn around.  Good news indeed.

I am glad it will have retail space on the 1st floor.  Otherwise it would seem like a waste to be accross the street from the BOK Center.

I agree but if I see one cricket mobile store, I start smashing windows.

Reading the TW comments on this article really hurt your head.


Here's a couple of choice ones. I don't think either person even bothered to read what they were commenting on:

Is it "Wayne's World" thought," Build it and they will come?" Is it a waste of money? Who gets the contract? Is their a bid or is the contracts given to my favorite person? Transparency in the govenment. It's just hard to do when it's behind closed doors.

BOK is not in the league with the big banks and they certainly have no clue how many square feet of vacant office space is currently in the downtown area. What a tremendous waste of money and it's no wonder people are pulling out of BOK. Excessive fees are paying for this through investments.

The lot as it exists currently (and what you see from the main entrance to the BOK Center)

I thought it interesting that Eggleston said he has enough letters of intent from interested would-be retailer and restaurant tenants to fill the place twice over.  While history says announcements and newspaper articles are a far cry from buildings rising from surface parking lots, it is encouraging that this project has generated that much interest

Great Stuff!

This makes the BOK and the Ballpark worth it all.  This is reaching "critical mass".

I would think this will do more for property values in the Downtown area than the Ballpark ever would.

Wonder what Mister Kaiser thinks of this? He will be running a Hotel in very close proximity.

Hmm, very similar in site plan (not style) to one we, The company I used to work for worked on years ago.




I like that layout, it opens the venue in the right direction.

Views looking west from this part of downtown are really nice, right down the river valley.  I can see the appeal of a new office tower in this location over their current digs at 5th & Boston.  I researched Cimarex Energy and it looks like they are a well-positioned oil/gas exploration company with a good potential for future growth.  Their corporate HQ is in Denver but they have offices in Tulsa, Dallas, Midland, and Houston.  If they're willing to lease that much space in a new building they must plan on increasing their operations in Tulsa.  That is a lot more space than they currently occupy in downtown.

That kinda looks like the Whole Foods headquarters in Austin TX. Very nice.
