I didn't realize S&J closed?  I liked that place but hadn't been back in awhile..  Anyone know what will replace it?

I'll be excited to see the work finally get started...I walk by it at least twice a day during work days.

I'll let you know if they discover that Sager did bad things...

I'm still surprised he uses the "we removed every brick" line. I'm no mason, but I've never seen that. I've seen bricks be regrouted or repointed, but I don't think I've ever seen or heard of a building having all the bricks pulled off and redone.  Anyone more knowledgeable than I?

Hopefully this article isn't another puff piece and it actually gets moving. Ross Group gets stuff done. As the Edge Wraps up, resources likely shift over.

I'm not defending Mr. Sager in any way but yes I have had projects where that required removal of the brick that was cleaned and then re-installed or even required complete demolition as a result.  This was required when there is little or no masonry ties to the structure and or when poor or weak mortar was used of developed over time as can be the case in the Tulsa area with historic structures which were built prior to Tulsa receiving quality water from the Spavinaw system, same issue as with the original portion of the 11th Street Bridge, chloride contamination (Tulsa's original water supply was the Arkansas River which at times contains dissolved chlorides) can happen in masonry joints as well.

Will they please replace the "Sager" nameplate?  They can put literally anything else in there.  "Ross" maybe?

I think Citizens of Tulsa would be fitting, considered the citizens have been the most patient real estate investor/lender known to man.

Just replace the S with an L and put in a brew pub. Or just the original construction date.

How about JACOBS, since that's what it was originally called?

Windows have been open and there have been 4 or 5 workers visible in and on the building.

Not exactly an army of workers getting things done but that's 4 or 5 more workers than I've seen in a long time.

From my office I've been able to see over the last month or so they have repaired the roof which had a tarp over parts of it for well over a year. I've seen a crane nearby recently supplying materials through the windows on the west side.  Things have been happening.

In that this project appears to be on track, lets start a new thread to focus on where it is going instead of continuing a discussion of where it has been.
