Development proposed for former OTASCO building downtown

Not meaning to drift, but I thought the main OTASCO building was just north of 11th street near the Pearl District.  Am I remembering correctly?

Great that corner has long been neglected.  Hopefully eventually the parking lot next door on 2nd gets a similar project that can activate the alley, especially with all of the future development a couple blocks to the east.

There were several in town.  The one at 2nd & Cinn was there until sometime in the 70's.

I might even be thinking Looboyles.  I remember it odd that it didnt face the main street.

Looboyles was on 11th.  Not too far from Oertle's.   I think Otasco was along there, too.  Seems like there was one out east along 21st or 31st, but can't remember where...maybe just confused...

Looboyles was in the Spectrum Mall on 21st just east of Garnett. Kind of across the street from where Skate World was. There was also a two screen theater the Spectrum Twin that lasted longer than the mall did.

What im remembering was something split level with an awning. 
This is the closest I could find in that area:

There was also a Looboyles in Southroads and one on 11th between Lewis and Harvard.

That, I believe was the original Looboyles. It seems right being on Xanthus.

Missed that Skate World... 11th and Sheridan was the one I went to when it first opened in early 70's.

Yeah, that sheet metal building Looboyles on 11th was the original.   Seems like I remember another one further out south somewhere - like near Southland, but not there - probably was the 21st and Garnett one - was a nicer place than 11th, but I didn't like it as well...the old one felt more comfortable.

Tulsa will find a way to mess up a $2.3 development of an empty building.

Better idea, landscape that small lot to the east and build a parking garage across 2nd st to the south with ground floor retail. You could park twice the cars in half the space, and still have room for development of the area between 2nd and 3rd and Cincinnati and Detroit.
