Located between the Mathews Warehouse building (currently being redeveloped by Kaiser/Philbrook/Gilcrease) and the new Griffin Communications building, this one block park replaced a semi-truck freight yard and contains a geothermal plant which will supply businesses in the brady district and also provide many other public amenities. It it currently under construction.

Thanks for posting.

I've been wondering what the structure is that's going up on the Brady Park site... I thought I remembered it was going to be an amphitheater of some sort, but I also hadn't seen any renderings.

This is going to be fantastic!

There is an interesting rendering/map on a banner attached to the fence along the south side of the park.  This park is going to be way more amazing than I thought.

  Yep like the structures in the park.  I really like the "loggia" along Brady because it will enhance the pedestrian friendly nature of the area between the other buildings on Brady and the Ballpark/Greenwood and Blue Dome districts.  The Matthews Warehouse et al are not going to be super pedestrian friendly and a park space right across from that could have made a pedestrian "unfriendly" gap in the area. But this loggia right across the street will help and act as an added comfortable place to walk along that particular block.  It can offer shade in the hot summer, some protection from the rain etc.  What could have been a potential gap in the fabric of the area, will with the loggia be MUCH more pedestrian frienly.  The trees along that street will help make the area feel nicer to walk along as well.  Now, if someone would just build something in that lot along the street just to the east we could really have some good connection between the various districts.  Oh, and the Pavilion looks quite snazzy.

I'm glad to see that it is finally starting to wrap up.  Smiley  I'm pretty impatient about things like this (as I'm sure everyone is well aware) and I feel like this project has been going on for a long time.  I guess that quality projects take time.  I'll be drinking beer there soon enough.

During Tulsa Tough, I was walking the course with a couple of people from chamois butt'r from KC and I was just thinking about how much nicer it will be next year with the park and museums finished.

Projects with geothermal heating/cooling plants underneath them take time.

I know, but my irrational impatience doesn't. Smiley

The mist ones are pretty kewl, look like volcanic flames in the videos.  I like that each of the different granite block/fountains has a different look and texture. They have put a lot of thought and some nice touches into this park.  Looks to be quality too.
