I was hoping they would buy the Hiland Dairy but it isn't anywhere close to the same size (136k SF vs 305k SF).  That likely would've required building another new building next to it. 

My guess is that the county will build a new courthouse south of 6th opening up that entire two block area for development of a convention hotel.

City of Tulsa buys the former State Farm complex for a new Fire/Police headquarters:

The city signed a nonbinding letter of intent in March to purchase a building to house a new public safety center but never shared that information with voters before asking them in August to approve millions of dollars to pay for such a facility.

Naming the new police and fire headquarters building "Wyatt Tate Brady building" would make a lot of sense because it is not in the north Tulsa's black community.

This building was discussed a long time ago. I guess I had assumed that it was what they intended to purchase once the vote passed.
