Great stuff^ Seems like OSU has been making a play to gain in the Tulsa area. Would make sense that OU feels the need to respond.

Great for Tulsa to have a strong OSU presence downtown and for OU to anchor south midtown.  If they can eventually be a part of a larger redevelopment of Promenade even better.

I wonder if OU would takeover the Promenade property, or a portion of it, for their proposed Polytechnic Institute

I'd like to see TCC open a Midtown campus at Promenade - then turn the Metro campus into a similar set up with OSU. That would allow both campuses to operate essentially as 4 year undergrad universities. Would make financial sense to build up student housing around both too finally.

Austin Community College Highland campus (former Highland Mall) is a great example. https://www.bgkarchitects.com/acc-highland-phase-i

Just an update, I was over in the Paradise Valley Mall area and got a couple of pictures to show the changes since February. The buildings are coming up out of the ground, and more ground work has been done.

OU-Tulsa seems to have plenty of land to expand on its own property if necessary, including adding parking garages to replace surface lots. Seems really inconvenient to try and connect it across a really busy street. I like the idea of it becoming a TCC campus and letting downtown focus solely on people looking for a four-year degree in collaboration with OSU-Tulsa. Create some housing and transit circuit between the campuses or have This Machine focus on both campuses since they are so close and with pedal assist you can avoid getting too sweaty even in the summer.
