Asked a construction worker today what was going into the old Dos Bandidos... he said that GitWit is taking over that entire space. Seemed to indicate that they were pretty close to wrapping up. They've really done a lot of work in there.

Stepped in Vast building today... looks like the final two tenants on the north side of the building are announced.

A Mexico City inspired restaurant... and an interesting concept. Seems like a Golf themed bar/simulator with a private club feel. Apparently they have Top Golf esque areas for golfing virtually. Should be interesting.

That's what I thought about GitWit, which is great news to confirm. Seems like a great company and a good tech firm to have around downtown. Plus, the space is so awkward that it makes sense for them to spread out and take all of it. I will kind of miss the old Rusty Crane space since I liked the atmosphere in there and the great patio, but it is a good trade off for the area.

The Bunker sounds cool. Great to have something like that coming downtown.


On the other side of downtown, the building that Saturn Room previously announced they would move into is under renovations. I like the current location a lot and am not sure why they want to move here, but I've heard they still plan to make the move when this space is finished. Might just be a rent vs owning thing.

Pic from the Tulsa World showing the Greenwood and Blue Dome Districts.  Pretty amazing to see the changes, a lot of this wasn't here or was vacant 5 years ago.  Looking forward to seeing Santa Fe Square filled out and especially the PAC Annex.  After those projects I would probably put redevelopment of the NORDAM site up there to anchor the southern half of the Blue Dome as the next transformational downtown project along with continued infill along both Elgin and Greenwood south of 1st

Great Photo,

The PAC lot sticks out like a sore thumb even from this angle... cannot wait for that lot to go away.

Re: NORDAM site... it was my understanding that it had been converted to office space. Is that incorrect?

It's almost unbelievable how big of an impact Santa Fe Square and the PAC Annex projects will make on the overall feel of this section of downtown.  Similar to the intersection of Archer & Elgin which is completely different than it was prior to ONEOK Field, Vast Bank and now The View, but on a much bigger scale. 

Part of the NORDAM site was turned into office space but there are still vacant lots there and just to the west along 6th.

From what I've seen the Nordam site is now the gated private property of Brickhugger. I don't think it will ever be developed. It's. just a garage for motorcycles now.

Doubt that especially with Ross Group owning the sites to the west and south and likely planning mixed-use redevelopment.  If anything they would sell them to someone else to develop.

I asked the city councilor about it. It seems they are. The streets have the red street signs indicating private property. I have photos from a couple weeks ago, but I'm not sure where they are.

They've had those red street signs up for a long time, I think they had those put up pretty quickly after they bought that site.
