What building do we think it will be in?

the "Tulsa Paper Company Building", which currently has Zarrow and Philbrook Downtown.

Would those institutions be relocating? It doesn't seem plausible that every museum in town is going to maintain a branch in a single building downtown.

That I couldn't quite figure out.

My WAG aligns with is that since TU is partnering with them on the archive, they would at the very least, re-purpose the "Zarrow Center for Art & Education" to become the Bob Dylan Center.  The "TPC Bid Documents" link included the engineering plans for both spaces, so heck, they may even be replacing both.  EDIT - But my gut feeling says it'll be just Zarrow.

Would someone be moving to the new building? I thought for sure the Dylan center would go in there.

So it appears the new Archer building is filling up, so I don't think anything will relocate there on account of the Dylan archives:

Quote
When the building is fully completed by spring 2017, it will feature 35 Tulsa Artist Fellowship (TAF) work studios, 14 TAF apartments and 10 ground-floor retail spaces.
With nine of the 10 retail tenants confirmed, the building will include Strange Donuts, Goods Bodega, Lone Wolf restaurant and bar, Glacier Confection, Holy Mountain Records, Magic City Books, and Made.

The linked GKFF page indicates that the Zarrow Center space is up for redevelopment as the Bob Dylan Center,  but the comment from the Kaiser website doesn't mention Philbrook:

Quote
The below PDF files highlight the space within the Tulsa Paper Company building that will be dedicated to the Bob Dylan Center.  This space, currently called the Zarrow Center for Art and Education, has approximately 18,000 square feet dedicated to programming. The basement is approximately 6,000 additional square feet of space dedicated to storage and mechanical systems. Apart from signage, the Bob Dylan Center project will be primarily an interior renovation and exhibit design project and will not require many, if any, changes to the exterior of the building.

I hope Zarrow relocates.  If so, where?

And is Philbrook affected by the Dylan Center or not?

Kaiser is also redeveloping a building on the far north edge of downtown. Maybe there as well

Is this the Kaiser Development you were thinking about?

Quote
The George Kaiser Family Foundation recently purchased the land that now houses the old Western Supply warehouses at 424 North Boulder. GKFF is asking for $306,000 for streetscaping around that area, but they are still being tight-lipped about exactly what they plan to develop there.

If that is in the cards as more art space or apartments (or other projects the GKFF has been working on) it would really widen the livelyl portion of the Brady District.  Coupled with OK Pop basically right across the street, and Cains, the new apartments, the parking garage... that corner of Brady could really take off and hopefully bleed into the empty lots just north of 244.
