Thanks for the pics, I like the brick (hopefully it doesn't look different/cheaper in person) but it looks like they're using one's that have a more 'aged' look and should make the building fit in a bit better with the surrounding area.

I looked at it recently and was very happy with overall materials quality. I think this is going to be a very good looking building. Probably better than Vast Bank HQ, which is also a nice building. I just find the parking garage placement baffling. Oh well its far better than the desiccated corpse of Spaghetti Warehouse.

Once the blue stuff is off the windows this will look a lot better.

Coming along quickly now. Both this and the View have brick flying up.

Would love to see this cool old building just north of 222 renovated.  Anyone know what the current use is for this building?  On Detroit north of Cameron next to the Gypsy.  It would be a great office or live/work space

I have heard that a renovation for that building is currently in the design phase.  I cannot recall what its proposed use is supposed to be.  But I recall the building will kind of have to stair step in order to accommodate Griffin Studio's satellite dishes.

The view from Guthrie Green.  Any more news on tenants for this building?

This thing is massive, and the more it gets covered in brick and finished the more massive it looks for some reason.

Good looking building, glad they were able to complete this project.

One of the best looking new office buildings I’ve seen built anywhere.  This would be a fantastic office for a company looking to expand in Tulsa.  I know offices aren’t fully back yet and may never be as strong as before with the popularity of WFH.

I've been waiting to pictures of it nearing exterior completion, and I really like the look of it. The multi pane window style is reminiscent of the windows from not only long gone buildings in more central DT, but also the windows on the warehouses that were dominant in the area. The canopy/overhang reminds me of some of the buildings that were near 3rd and Boulder or Cheyenne, as well as ones that were on Main before the Bartlett Square era.

It may be just me, but I see elements of several buildings from downtown in this building.

Older aerial but shows how this fits into its surroundings

Still a hive of activity and a long ways to go on this one. They have been hard at work on the parking garage side finishing up the exteriors around there. I feel like we have been waiting forever for them to fill in the last gaps in the cladding on the east side.

Getting so close now. They are in the process of milling and overlaying the streets around this, so it seems they expect construction walls to come down within the next few weeks.

They've done about as well as one can with the oversized parking structure. The ones in the southern part of downtown, and in the Cimarex nightmare, are just sad.
