Oklahoma City Welcomes Quik Trips

City Council Approves Zoning Request for Quik Trips

                    

In October of 2021, the Oklahoma City Planning Commission approved application for the city's first Quik Trips Convenience Store.

The Oklahoma City Council on Tuesday has approved a zoning request to allow construction of a Quik Trips convenience store franchise at 4000 E Hefner Road, with the property planned along the the nearby I-35 Service Road near Frontier City Amusement Park.

The Tulsa based company has 900 QT locations throughout the country with 81 located inside the Sooner State.

Stillwater based On-Cue has multiple locations throughout Oklahoma City as more quality convenience stores continue to infiltrate the metropolitan area.

The Brown Family recently sold its 112 independent chain of 7-Eleven stores in the metropolitan to Dallas based 7 Eleven Corporation out of Irving, Texas.

It hasn't been revealed as to when construction of the city's first store will begin.

BancFirst Tower crown cover and updates

BancFirst is excited to be making such a substantial investment in downtown. David Harlow, CEO of BancFirst Corporation, said the company was out of room at its building at 101 N. Broadway and was leasing a floor in the tower.

“Our investment was both out of necessity and a desire to remain downtown,” he said. “The tower is good long-term solution for us and our ownership of the tower is certainly a great outcome for downtown. Corporate headquarters are important for cities. We are here for the long haul and excited about the prospects for BancFirst Tower, its role in our company’s future, and its place in the ongoing redevelopment and renaissance of downtown Oklahoma City.”

Outside, people will notice the ongoing glasswork, which is expected to be done in January 2022. The glass is being installed one floor at a time, going around the building from north, east, south then west.--Excerpts from OKC Velocity

I would still take OnCue over QT - if nothing else, just for the fountain drinks!   OnCue and Kum & Go both have better drinks!!   By a lot!

Chickasaw Nation unveils plans for development of an expansive resort-style destination development adjacent to First Americans Museum in OKC


                               Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby today unveiled plans for a major
                               resort-style development to be located adjacent to the newly-opened First
                               Americans Museum. Situated along the Oklahoma River near downtown
                               Oklahoma City, OKANA Resort & Indoor Waterpark will be a $300+ million tourist
                               destination designed to continue the momentum of economic development in
                               Oklahoma City.

                               “Strong partnerships and diligent effort among city and state officials
                                and private entities have been integral to the launch of the First
                                Americans Museum,” said Gov. Anoatubby. "With this world-lass
                                First Americans Museum now in operation, we are ready to turn
                                our focus to what we believe will be another significant tourism
                                and hospitality venue. It is our vision that the OKANA Resort
                                will enhance the experience for visitors from not only our region,
                                but across North America and around the world.”
                              
                               “OKANA Resort & Indoor Waterpark has been designed to complement
                               the First Americans Museum’s focus on cultural experience as well as
                               connect visitors to other entertainment experiences along this established
                               and vibrant part of the Oklahoma River.”

                               Plans announced detailed the first phase of the project, which is scheduled to
                               develop approximately 40 acres of the total 140 acres held by AICCM Land
                               Development, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Chickasaw Nation.

                               The resort-hotel will feature an 11-story, 404-room hotel, providing guests with
                               luxurious accommodations, riverfront and lagoon views and proximity to the heart
                               of Oklahoma City and the Boathouse District. A five-acre outdoor adventure lagoon
                               designed for relaxation and play will sit at the center of the property and will be
                               comprised of one main body of water and two smaller bodies of water – all lined
                               with sandy beaches. A pedestrian bridge will stretch across the main body of water,
                               allowing guests to easily move throughout the property. The resort also will feature
                               a 33,000 square-foot family entertainment center, over 100,000 square-feet indoor
                               waterpark, 39,000 square-feet of conference center space, spa and golf simulator,
                               and multiple retail outlets, and dining options.


                               Chickasaw Nation Secretary of Commerce Bill Lance said that cooperation between local
                               and state government and business leaders made this type of investment possible.
                               “Undoubtedly, an entertainment and lodging complex of this magnitude will add significantly
                               to the exciting progress going on in Oklahoma City. Initially, the resort is projected to employ
                               400 people and the annualized economic impact year one is projected to be $97 million.
                               Additionally, estimates for the 10-year economic impact of this development are projected
                               to exceed $1 billion, with full-time employment expanding to approximately 700-800.”

                               The development also will feature a Native American Market and amphitheater. The market
                               provides a space for First American artists to showcase works of art or other creations.
                               The amphitheater and outdoor lawn will accommodate roughly 1,500 people. These venues
                               are meant to augment the museum’s programming with local artist performances, festivals,
                               lectures and similar events.

                               Lance noted that the development will connect easily with the Boathouse District through a
                               new Oklahoma River Cruises Ferry Landing funded through a $4 million grant from the Federal
                               Transit Administration. Additional access to the area will be available through the trails system
                               from both the north and the south. With the property located directly on the Oklahoma River,
                               visitors will have a front-row seat to the starting line for U.S. Rowing National High Performance
                               Center’s 2000-meter course.


                               Wynne/Jackson, a Dallas-based real estate development firm, is assisting in the development
                               design for the entire project. New York-based Aquatic Development Group is the hotel developer,
                               while Wisconsin-based ADCI is the hotel and waterpark architect. Benchmark Hospitality will
                               operate the hotel and waterpark, which is expected to employ about 500 people in its operations.
                               CallisonRTKL also is assisting in the master planning of the entire project and serving as architect
                               for the Native American Marketplace and retail and dining components. Johnson & Associates
                               from Oklahoma City assisted with site preparation and ongoing work.

                               Project funding, including site remediation, infrastructure and development, will come from both
                               private and public sources. Public funding will include tax increment funds, MAPS4, federal
                               transportation grants and funds from existing general obligation bonds.

                               The plans submitted today estimate a project completion in the late spring of 2024.

                               City and business leaders commented on the announcement of OKANA Resort & Indoor Waterpark.

                               “The caliber of this development is world-class and truly worthy of America’s 22nd-largest city,”
                               said Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt. “FAM’s opening was just the first step in establishing this
                               site’s potential for our community. The announcement of the development plan illustrates how
                               Oklahoma City can emerge as an international destination for Native and Indigenous culture.
                               This development helps to further create a place where Native and Indigenous people will come
                               together, and a place where all people will experience that culture. On behalf of the people of
                               Oklahoma City, we are so grateful to the Chickasaw Nation for its vision and its commitment to
                               this project. Our mutual partnership is something that Oklahoma City deeply values.”

                               “We are excited to see the area around the First Americans Museum (FAM) be developed with
                               care and appreciation for the architectural integrity of the museum. Our new neighbors, the
                               AICCM Land Development, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Chickasaw Nation, have been
                               collaborative and inclusive with FAM as the project has been designed. The FAM team has played
                               an advisory role throughout the process. FAM, as well as the surrounding communities, will greatly
                               benefit from the presence of the conference hotel and water park,” said James Pepper Henry,
                               First Americans Museum Director and CEO.

                               Roy Williams, Greater Oklahoma City Chamber President and CEO said, “The number of hospitality
                               and lodging options available for OKC visitors of all types has exploded in the past few years.
                               And, soon, the OKANA resort will bring an additional experience that complements our unique new
                               museum. The economic impact of a commercial development of this magnitude, especially in
                               proximity to the new park and the First Americans Museum, builds on the momentum achieved in
                               our city in recent years.  It is a tribute to the “can do” spirit of OKC public and private sector leaders,
                               including especially our partners at the Chickasaw Nation.”

                               Oklahoma City Convention and Visitors Bureau President Zac Craig said, “As the world emerges from
                               the pandemic, we expect the competition in the convention space will be intense for several years.
                               But I can say with confidence that OKC stands ready with world class attractions for both leisure
                               travel and convention business to compete with any city in this region and beyond. The OKANA project
                               is a welcome and exciting addition to OKC’s hospitality and entertainment portfolio and will further
                               magnify the economic vitality of our city.”

Oklahoma City Innovation District

MAPS 4 matching $10 million funds for Innovation Hall





The $180 million Convergence development includes more than $10 million for the construction of Innovation Hall.

The development also includes an office tower with 50,000 square feet of lab space and subterranean parking, a full-service hotel and a public space that includes the Beacon of Hope monument.

OKLAHOMA CITY – Construction is set to begin this spring on a MAPS 4 project expected to create jobs and encourage more diversification of the local economy.

The Oklahoma City Council on Tuesday approved a master development agreement with the Oklahoma City Redevelopment Authority and BT Development LLC for the construction and development of the MAPS 4 Innovation Hall.

Activities at Innovation Hall could include learning academies like coding training for all ages; versatile space for meetings and events related to innovation and entrepreneurship; and pop-up spaces for entrepreneurs to showcase new ideas and build connections.

It will be part of the Convergence development – a joint venture of Robinson Park and Gardner Tanenbaum – in the heart of the Oklahoma City Innovation District. The 2.7-acre site lies between the University of Oklahoma Research Park and Oklahoma State University’s Hamm Institute for American Energy.

“It’s really connecting the universities together and providing a place where the universities will work together to provide new innovation and new job opportunities for all Oklahomans,” said Mark Beffort with Robinson Park.

The $180 million Convergence development includes more than $10 million for the construction of Innovation Hall included in the recent passage of MAPS 4.

The development includes an office tower with 50,000 square feet of lab space and subterranean parking, a full-service hotel and a public space that includes the Beacon of Hope monument.

Oklahoma City Redevelopment Authority said the agreement approved Tuesday spells out a way that $10 million in MAPS 4 funds can be provided to this project according to Cathy O'Connor.

“Innovation Hall always was intended to be a private-public partnership constructed with $10 million from MAPS to match $10 million from non-MAPS sources, O’Connor said.

Mayor David Holt said the $10 million match was pushed by the council and the MAPS 4 development process.

“Our hope was to get $10 million obviously out of it and we’re getting a $180 million project, so I think that’s money well spent,” Holt said.

The developer’s $10 million will go for land cost, infrastructure,  90 spaces in a parking garage dedicated to Innovation Hall.

Groundbreaking is scheduled for  April 2022 and the grand opening two years later in March 2024.

“This project will go under construction all at once – so the hotel, the office, the lab space, all the public realm improvements will all happen at the same time,” O'Connor said.

The city has approval of the conceptual design for Innovation Hall. The developer will construct, operate and maintain the facility and will convey the title for the surface of the land where hall is built to the Oklahoma City Redevelopment Authority.

“When we are talking about the operation of Innovation Hall we are talking about the physical building, not the operator who will provide the services and programming that the city will fund through MAPS 4,”  replied O’Connor.


Project Cost Estimate:  $180 million
