Got to visit last week and gotta say that roads are even worse than they were 6 months ago or so the last time we were there.  What a mess!

Visited Basket Market - Hobby Lobby leftover shop.  Total waste of time and energy.

North Pole City on the other hand is always great!

And the highlight of the trip was, of course, Del Rancho!!!   It is an absolute travesty that they don't have a restaurant here in Tulsa!  I don't totally begrudge the fact we have to drive 150 miles to get a decent chicken fried steak, but it would be so nice to only go a couple miles!!

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Fair evaluation.  Respect your view from someone who lives outside our city limits.

Former home of Bonds Bakery and Cain Coffee Company.

The historic Cain's Coffee building is being eyed for redevelopment into offices following its sale to Midwest City contractor HGL Construction, a $4 million renovation has brought the building up to code.

Cain's Coffee was based at 1 NW 12 from 1941 until 1961 when a new plant was built along Broadway Extension just south of Edmond.

The five-story, 50,000-square-foot building at One NW 12, was once on Oklahoma City's demolition list, but was saved by Stan Engle, who bought it in 1994 for his Christian nonprofit, The Lifehouse.

Cains, which had locations in the Golden Triangle (Oklahoma City, Tulsa & Wichita) produced coffee, spices, teas and mustards.

LED lights are being tested for multiple color schemes.  While visiting the site Saturday, November 7, got a good glimpse of this magnificent hotel development.  Amazed by the number of people who were walking around Scissortail Park and the Myriad Botanical Gardens past 8 p.m.

The Omni plans indicate rooms will be located on the fourth through the 17th floors, especially equipped and designed on the 16th & 17th flloors to accommodate NBA players with higher doorways and longer beds.

New Omni Hotel on schedule for January grand opening:  https://www.velocityokc.com/blog/development/new-omni-hotel-on-schedule-for-january-grand-opening/

Oklahoma City Council approves amended deal with Costco.



The amendment increases the hiring from 1,044 to 1,503 jobs over five to seven years, with about 1,000 to still be hired within the first three years. However the first year average wage is dropping from $44,606 to $38,299.   The average annual wage will only rise to $53,876 by the sixth year instead of $60,000 in the third year as offered in the original agreement.


A determining factor was Costco’s $25.4 million purchase of the former four-story Hertz administrative building at 14501 Quail Springs Parkway, the purchase followed the city’s approval of the amended original agreement and the renovated Hertz building has room to expand for more employees.

Oklahoma Insurance Department





"Construction has started on a new building which will be part of a 2-building complex for the Oklahoma Insurance Department.

The state bought the existing 37,700 square foot 2-story building from Hobby Lobby a few years ago. Hobby Lobby had bought from Travco Construction but never did anything with it."--OKCTalk.com

Construction, weather and everyday driving wear and tear have taken its toll on all OKC roads, streets & bridges.
Our new $625 million convention center complex (Center, Hotel, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Garage) will be a good future investment.

Oklahoma City's First National Center's $275 million Renovation

  
Exterior
 

The 1931 Art Deco tower, long considered one of the most historic buildings in the city, suffered through 30 years of neglect before it was purchased by developers Gary Brooks and Charlie Nicholas in January 2017 with plans to convert the building into a mix of retail, a 146-room Marriott Autograph Hotel and 193 luxury apartments.

 
Interior

  

 
“One of the many challenges was to make sure we had an accurate understanding of the physical structure,” Developer Gary Brooks said. “It required a substantial number of engineers and various experts to do detailed evaluations of every square foot of the 1.1 million square feet, both interior and exterior. And we had to go deep into the design stage to make sure the team could verify that our plan was feasible given the building conditions.”
