On Thursday, construction crews lifted the dome onto the Blessed Stanley Rother Shrine.

“This was a momentous moment in construction of the shrine that will become a visible beacon of faith for thousands of people from around the world. They will come to visit our state and city, and come to learn about our ordinary priest from Okarche who lived an extraordinary life,” said Most Rev. Paul S. Coakley, Archbishop of Oklahoma City. “I am grateful for everyone who has played a part in this project and look forward to the dedication next year.”--Sooner Catholic

Construction is finished on the $288 million Oklahoma City Convention Center, but grand opening celebrations will have to wait for what is the most expensive capital project in city history.

The convention center, designed by Populous and GSB, spans 500,000 square feet, including 275,000 square feet of space divided into an exhibit hall, meeting space and ballrooms.

About 45,000 square feet of meeting spaces are on all levels of the building, and many have operable walls to make the spaces flexible. The rooms can be configured to provide up to 27 meeting spaces, allowing the city to host multiple conventions simultaneously.

Mayor David Holt said the convention center is part of an “unparalleled synergy” shared with Scissortail Park, the Omni, Chesapeake Energy Arena and the Oklahoma City streetcar.

The 17-story Omni Oklahoma City Hotel features 605 guest rooms, including 29 suites with well-appointed furnishings and regional design influences that take inspiration from the pastoral landscape of the Oklahoma terrain. Hotel guests are welcomed with touches of elegant tradition paired with a sophisticated mix of contemporary and approachable comfort. The hotel’s design pays homage to the state and weaves in the rustic, earthy tones of the landscape into each space.


The garage can be expanded to park 1,400 cars if needed. The first floor will be home to the new operations office for EMBARK’s parking system.

Oklahoma City Integris Baptist Hospital Expansion



INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is a 511-bed hospital offering a full range of surgical, diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitative services.

State-of-the-art Heart and ICU Hospital Expansion
INTEGRIS Health has made it our mission to partner with people to live healthier lives, and in keeping with that promise we are excited to announce the construction of a state-of-the-art Heart and ICU Hospital expansion at INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center, Northwest Expressway campus.

The Heart and ICU Hospital expansion on the INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center Northwest campus will keep to the promise of INTEGRIS Health’s Mission to partner with people to live healthier lives. The expansion includes a 209,000 square foot building and will have 64 ICU beds, multiple cardiac catheterization labs, cardiovascular operating rooms, hybrid operating rooms, electrophysiology heart labs, and convenient cardiac diagnostic testing areas. The new space is designed with the patient in mind, making navigating the hospital and clinics as easy as it has ever been in one convenient location. Construction begins immediately and will be completed in 2024.

INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center has long been known as Oklahoma’s leader in caring for the most complicated medical needs—from the state’s only Burn Center to the hospital that performs the most solid organ transplants. The new Heart and ICU Hospital expansion at INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center will help Oklahomans for many generations to come!

The new 209,000 square foot building will have 64 ICU beds, multiple cardiac catheterization labs, cardiovascular operating rooms, hybrid operating rooms, electrophysiology heart labs, and convenient cardiac diagnostic testing areas. The new space is designed with the patient in mind, making navigating the hospital and clinics as easy as it has ever been in one convenient location.   

Construction begins immediately and will be completed in 2024. “INTEGRIS Health is a not-for-profit, community health system, which means it is governed by Oklahomans for the benefit of Oklahomans,” said Timothy Pehrson, President and CEO of INTEGRIS Health. Pehrson continued, “when the project was presented to the Board, they were delighted with the concept of continuing INTEGRIS Health’s legacy of being the most trusted partner for health in Oklahoma. The new Heart and ICU Hospital expansion at INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center will help Oklahomans for many generations to come.”

Oklahoma City First National Center Renovation update


This garage is part of First National Center renovation; total cost north of $275 million—do little to explain what the renewal and rebirth of the First National Center into housing, apartments, retail and dining actually means to OKC.  Largest private renovation investment in the State of Oklahoma.

The Basilica will be dedicated to an ordinary martyr

Father Stanley Rother's remains will have a permanent resting place

The $40 million shrine is the highest profile project undertaken as part of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City's first capital campaign.

Besides a chapel, the site will include a 2,000-seat church where the priest's body will be entombed, an education building, an event space, and several areas designated for shrines and devotion. The site will be developed over time, the archdiocese said.--The Pilot.

The Oak, proposed 322 apartment unit near Penn Square Mall.

First phase of construction at The Oak



The application to the Oklahoma City Planning Department indicates construction will start first with 322 apartments, a pool and courtyard and garage parking that will be fronted by 20,848 square feet of retail.

The designs submitted to the city are schematic and could change.--Oklahoman, Lackmeyer, August 25, 2021

Blessed Stanley Rother Shrine & Basilica cam:  https://webcampub.multivista.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=aPublicWebcam.embed&WebcamPublicEmbedUID=94BCCE88-AE07-4F31-A958-474BE766DA40&width=700&height=400&background=black

All the dome caps (or whatever they are called) appear to have been lifted.  Great view from I-35 south @ 89th Street--caution:  KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE ROAD.  You can exist off N.W. 12th Street, drive north to S. E. 89th Street to the construction site--it's impressive.

Awesome view of the Basilica as you travel south on I-35. Can get a glimpse of the project.  All domes are in place see construction cam:   https://webcampub.multivista.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=aPublicWebcam.embed&WebcamPublicEmbedUID=94BCCE88-AE07-4F31-A958-474BE766DA40&width=700&height=400&background=black

Should be able to see more of this project filed in November--interior construction will speed up in the winter months.  Construction target 2022 for the Basilica.

The Pilgrim Center is apart of this project.

                 
                                                            A Place of Pilgrimage

Standing as a beacon of faith and a visible sign of the Church’s presence in Oklahoma, the Blessed Stanley Rother Shrine will be a resource for the entire archdiocese. The Shrine will welcome pilgrims from throughout Oklahoma, the United States and beyond.

The Shrine Church will be designed in the Spanish mission style, mirroring Blessed Stanley’s church in Santiago Atitlán.

Town Center at Remington Park updated:


This is a placeholder . . .

With the popularity of the WCWS and the proximity of Remington Park whose parking lot is used for WCWS parking, you would have thought that a developer-investor or The Tribe itself would have taken advantage of this parcel.  

The Universities of Oklahoma & Texas move to the Southeastern Conference could result in the SEC softball tournament being moved from Rhoads Stadium in Tuscaloosa to USA Hall of Fame Stadium in OKC.  

Having one or two nice hotels (200 - 400 rooms with expansion possibilities) on site would benefit Remington Park & Casino along with the annual WCWS and possibly the Southeastern Conference annual softball tournament being moved to Oklahoma City as a prelude to the WCWS tournament.


The SEC softball tournament is played in Tuscaloosa (Capacity: 3,940) vs a much larger off campus neutral site USA Hall of Fame Stadium (Capacity: 11,500 - 12,600).  This on campus facility favors the University of Alabama.

 

Imagine the benefits of a hotel or two in The Adventure District.  Patrons could spend the night at Remington Park (especially those having mixed drinks) without having to leave the premises after an evening or night of drinking.  The teams and fans of the SEC and WCWS could shorten their drive and be within walking distance of Hall of Fame Stadium.
