The lot between the Coliseum and Lindsay House is now fenced off.  Will work begin soon on the office building or something else?

I was unable to locate a building permit or announcement on those lots. Sometimes there is a lag between the permit and hitting the map.

The lot it is owned by One Small Step for Land, LLC.  The only land that LLC holds (under its own name) are the three lots between the Coliseum and Lindsey house. The registered agent for that entity is Frederic Dorwart. Obviously best known for representing Kaiser entities, but he is registered agent for 393 companies in Oklahoma, maybe a third of those Kaiser related (maybe).

The last I heard that lot was going to be a new office for Jackson Technical. A couple of months ago the TW ran their application for a permit which listed it as "foundation only."

Thank you.

The permit issuance is here:

Ted Reeds Architecture is handling the project. The permit language is "Foundation Only New Office Bldg For Jackson Tech." I couldn't find any renderings or anything else.

But more good news for downtown! When home grown companies decide to stay downtown and create buildings that fit then, then we grow vibrant downtown.

It's disappointing to see the building set back from the public sidewalk along Elgin, with a large curb cut (or two) for parking.  The parking would be better alley-side instead of street-side, in my opinion.

Wow. It's really unusually to see a building setback like with parking in the front downtown. Wonder what the thinking was.

The bigger question:  Why is it even allowed?

On the FB page, someone said the owner is from Broken Arrow, might have something to do with the thinking.  It really should be built up to the curb, especially in that area.

Not only that, but why do they allow single use buildings.

No, it shouldn't be built up to the curb.  Closer to the property line and the sidewalk perhaps, but not within the public right of way to the curb.  Wink

It's not a bad looking building, just flip the parking to be behind the building and it would be fine.
