^Great news! Was hoping that corner wouldn't sit vacant too long. Love Cabin Boys... I think there's some stiff competition on the top Tulsa brewery though. Solera would definitely have a word.

Interesting plans for Center of the Universe. Not sure what I think about the canopy structure I think it distracts from tower sculpture already there and just covers it up. Rest of it looks nice though - I really hope they are able to figure out how to preserve the acoustics but I'm afraid the renovations to the structure of the bridge underneath will end up damaging it.

I wish they would take the southern end of the bridge and build out a plaza in front of Union Station as well and get rid of that parking lot. Would make the walk between the Arts District and Blue Dome a lot nicer and more pleasant than the parking lot or blank walls of the Williams complex.

Seems like that canopy would get really dirty and not be remotely easy to clean. The amount of dust the railroad tracks kick up, not to mention all the automotive traffic in the area, would really leave a nice layer of scum on it daily. Now - I'm sure the city is planning on regular cleaning, but they seem to be incapable to maintaining much of anything. I think the funding for new remodel should include an endowment to maintain it for the foreseeable future (something well beyond the $250,000 already included in the budget).

I cant see how adding all those reflective surfaces would not wreck the acoustics.  Sometimes improvements, arent.

Hadn't thought about the awning's cleanliness issue. Hopefully they don't mess up the acoustics, but this area needs some serious TLC. The concrete is a total patchwork and there are bricks missing that need to be replaced.

Hopefully the acoustics don't get screwed up. However anything to make the walk/experience less spooky I am  all for. Every time I take someone to see it they reaction was usually kind of creeped out by the surroundings instead of the actual attraction lol

Sinclair building on 5th street is finally fenced off. Looks like they're beginning demolition work. Excited for that corner to be activated, it's a really cool building.
