21 Greenwood may be the most under-appreciated DT project right now. It does make quite the impact on this street, and the plethora of outside decks around the building will be interesting.

I drove Cherry Street and downtown Sunday to check out all the new construction.  Cherry Street is getting taller.  The old OTASCO by city hall looks cool.  I like the work underway at Greenwood and much of the Arts District stuff.  However, the Cain's Ballroom block made me feel extra claustrophobic.  The OKPOP museum and the huge residential building south of Cain's just dwarf and maybe even diminish Cain's.  They are not built to the scale of the block.  Usually I like eclectic and small, large can be symbiotic, but this just seems out of place.  Maybe once finished, I'll get a different vibe.  The OKPOP building is kind of pedestrian/bland looking right now.  Hopefully that's just the stage of its construction.  I drove by 8-9 construction or newly constructed sites and the Cain's block is the only one that hit me this way.  Still think OKPOP and the PAC Theater Above Cincinnati expansion should have been built in the empty lot east of PAC.

OKPOP doesnít have its exterior skin installed yet.  When youíre seeing now is the fluid air barrier underneath which is a beige color.  It will be a lot more colorful when itís complete

I should have qualified my take --- I've always liked the renderings.  I might have liked the original concept renderings best.  I can't wait to see the stories told.

411 Greenwood looks pretty sharp and just about ready to take residents:


The new walkway behind the ballpark is almost done. I worry this will become just another encampment before long though...

For now, the homeless seem pretty comfortable on Archer next to the new juvenile justice center.

That's where many of the the services are for the homeless.

I'd like to see the Greenwood walkway eventually extended further west to connect to the Katy Trailhead at Denver Ave.

The Hiland Dairy is closing on Denver.  Interested to see what happens with that site.  Kinda sad to see some of these industrial uses no longer operating downtown.

I hope they are able to maintain the old white-painted main buildings and turn them into something (non-law/jail/court related) as opposed to scraping the site.  It has potential.  When did it become Hiland anyway?  Last time I noticed it was Oak Farms and Borden.  Hiland bought Dean Foods dairies and already had more modern, larger facilities in Chandler (remember FarmFresh?), Norman and their HQs in Springfield, MO.  I believe this will be the first time in 100 or so years Tulsa proper will be without a dairy.

Large mural starting on the parking garage/retail shops on main and 4th. They've put some serious money in upgrading this building. Redid the lights and windows I believe. 

As a side note, I stopped by Cherry St Kitchen on 5th and Boulder this morning and it was bustling. Was great to feel the energy in downtown.

^That's great, because that has always been such a ugly blank wall. This street is kind of dominated by parking garages now, but at least they are being made to look a little more snazzy.

Wonder who got the mural job.  I put in our application to do it and thought we had a pretty good chance according to the criteria they put fourth, but didn't even seem to be a contender.
