The TW had an article about Elliot Nelson where he had a couple intriguing quotes:

Quote
I am working on a really big project right now. It's outside of my depth. I have no business doing it.

Quote
I've talked to the old guys in town about this new project. They say it's crazy. So, all right, we are going to do it. It feels good. It feels like I am doing what I should be doing.

I'm guessing he's referring to Santa Fe Square project as that is a huge project, but the way he was coy about saying what it was has me wondering. Does anyone know of anything else that might be going on?

Also, they have 700 emplyees and might have 1,000 by 2018! I had no idea they employed 700. As far as I see, they have 12 restaurant/bars along with the catering place. I know most are probably part time, but still, that's a lot of employees!

Not bad for a fellow who was teetering on bankruptcy not long after he’d opened El Guapo’s.

Tulsa is relaunching their Economic Development Commission, and Nelson is (was?) an officer of that, I think. Maybe that's the parts that he's in over his head

Haven't seen anything beyond wood and green. Is there more finished?

That's the Oneok building in the background.  It looks pretty much like the photo to me, they just haven't installed the exterior materials yet.

That picture appears to be a photo shopped version of the Residence Inn in downtown Little Rock.   It's the first pic that comes up for the hotel on their website.  The background building has been changed, otherwise identical.

Lots of stucco, 2nd floor up.

I don't think that was the point.  While most hotels do look the same, in this instance it appears to be the exact same rendering and the question is:  will the hotel that is going up actually look like that? I'm not familiar enough with construction to know for sure, but having walked by this morning it seems like a fair question.  Not that it's some great crime or anything, its just always interesting to see how a project goes from first rendering to final product.

Yuck, really?  I was hoping it would look like the rendering.  5th St is an important pedestrian corridor and deserves better.
