Jumping back on the Cyber District discussion....

http://www.newson6.com/story/40300820/oklahoma-lawmakers-work-to-beef-up-technology-workforce

Quote
TULSA, Oklahoma - The Oklahoma Legislature looking to bolster a growing and sought after-industry in the state.

Senate Bill 746 will be debated in the house next week, and if passed, will create a new personal income tax credit for new software and cyber security employees.

"These two areas present enormous growth opportunities for Tulsa, for northeast Oklahoma," said Mike Neal, Tulsa Regional Chamber President and CEO.

The Tulsa Regional Chamber is lobbying for the bill.

"Our businesses have been telling us for years, they can't find people in these areas, and they're constantly stealing these people from other companies,” said Neal.

Neal says they, along with the Oklahoma City and state chambers, came to lawmakers last fall.

Because while the state's IT industry continues to grow, Neal says the major companies in the state have massive IT departments, who need quality experts.

"They are in essence IT companies operating under different various businesses,” he said.

While the specifics of this bill are still being ironed out, if passed, it would give a $2,200 annual tax credit for new qualifying software or cyber security bachelors or higher degree holders.

And an $1,800 dollar tax credit for non-degree, accredited holders.

They also have to meet certain wage and industry requirements.

Neal says their goal is to not only keep talented IT workers here, but also bring in even more from around the country.

"Who we think could come here, could develop families here, and be here for years to come,” said Neal.

The bill already passed the Senate.

If signed into law, it would go into effect on November 1st.

I think they are trying to tie this into the TU campus architecture.

My GF lives about a block from this and right now she rents.  I'd hate to think how much that rent goes up.  Good for the area though.

This isn't for the NE corner of 6th and Lewis.  That corner is where the West Park Phase II housing project mentioned earlier is going.  The vacant block where dirt is moving is entirely owned by "West Park Phase II LLC," not University of Tulsa.

Where did these renderings come from, and any better guesses on where they are intended to be built?

They are screenshots from a video TU posted about the Cyber District.  It mentioned 6th & Lewis so I assumed the northeast corner but it may be another site.  I believe the initial phase is three buildings.

I'm guessing they're trying to match historic Tulsa architecture and the Whittier District proposed guidelines so they'll fit the area. Looks like they've got a nice proposed rendering to hit those pretty well. That main building has a bit of an Art Deco look to it while also tying into the Gothic Revival style of the TU Library. They look like they'll fit with the other new developments around there that GKFF supported.

The current cyber corp building at 12th and Harvard isn't "cyber" at all either. It's a beautiful classic Art Deco building. Glad TU preserved it and retrofitted it to work for them.

Is this the NE corner of 6th & Lewis project?  If it is, that was bare ground last time I was in Tulsa.
