Plans are underway to turn the old Hartford Building in the Blue Dome area, formerly occupied by the City of Tulsa, into a community medical center. No rendering or firm plans are yet available. You can read the story unfold below:

111 S. Greenwood. Just east of the Blue Dome district.

There have been an inordinant amount of fire trucks at the building for the last few weeks.  Is TFD using it for drills?

I do know that that Hartford building is at the northern end of the proposed East Village Park that Land Legacy is working on. At the other end is the new proposed All Souls Unitarian Church. Halfway down the middle of the park is new home of Tulsa Opera in the old fire department headquarters. Is something coming together quietly in the East Village?

TU is making a legitimate proposal to house their portion of the School of Community Medicine (partnership with OU).  Formaation is also still proposing a development there, but significantly modified from their original it seems:  they are now proposing a 105 story mixed use building on that and adjacent sites.


(that is not a typo. 105 stories.)

This (the TU project) would be hella cool.  It would extend the Blue Dome through to the edge of the IDL and add activity to that end of the world over a whole new time frame.  Steady foot traffic in overlapping time slots is what our DT commercial needs to sustain itself, and, along with residential development, a TU mini-campus would help do just that.

Jeez, that is as tall as Freedom Tower in Manhattan. 105 Stories would put it in the "super-Skyscraper" category...That's an interesting proposal.

Well, good luck to them on that... but at 105 stories it seems like a publicity stunt.  Really neat if it ever comes down the pipeline, but I'm skeptical.

Seems about as likely as a movie studio, a walmart and a mixed use multi acre concept with a baseball field at its center in the east end.

Grandiose plans for the east end are nice - I would prefer something that will actually happen.

OT I know, but what is the level of occupnacy of the old City Of Faith complex? I also think some one is definetly smoking something to propose a 105 story building downtown. The foot print for that would be extremely large. Was it proposed by the guy who designed "The American" statue?

Might as well throw in a totally-enclosed 1.5 mile NASCAR track and some dancing pink elephants while we are at it.  Who are these Formaation folks?

Chuck Tollefsen is the principal.  I've met with him a couple times on various projects.  Does not strike me as the kind of guy that could pull of a 10.5 story tower.
