Oklahoma City finishes $288 million convention center




Construction of MAPS 3’s $288 million Oklahoma City Convention Center is complete after more than a decade of planning. The state-of-the-art facility is debt-free and elevates OKC’s capacity for hosting meetings and conventions.

The Convention Center is next door to the Omni Oklahoma City Hotel, set to open January 26 as the 605-room headquarters hotel.

The City’s former convention center building, formerly known the Cox Convention Center, is being leased to Prairie Surf Media and will be transformed into a film studio and soundstage.

So fascinating to see how so many of the new developments in OKC are not pedestrian friendly, while very glad to see so many are pedestrian friendly in Tulsa.

You are so correct.   Something the City and the design review committee needs to stress with the strict requirements.

Oklahoma City 2017  Better Streets, Safer City program.

The $967 million general obligation bond package uses property tax revenue to fund basic infrastructure needs:  https://www.okc.gov/residents/better-streets-safer-city-projects/bond-package The project was approved by voters September 17, 2017.  Many neighborhoods will receive sidewalks and many other area where sidewalks need repair; the bond will address those needs.
 

          Streets and Sidewalks

               The largest component of the entire bond package is $491 million for streets and sidewalks. Streets are perennially a top concern among
               Oklahoma City residents, which is reflected in the size of the investment included in the bond package.

               MAPS 3 also addressed sidewalks.  The MAPS 3 Sidewalks promote a more pedestrian-friendly lifestyle in Oklahoma City. The sidewalks are planned for
                the areas with a high demand for pedestrian amenities.  Project budget: $18.1 million





It is a clear, understandable and organized sidewalk, street and land use system consistent with the scale and function of the surrounding urban context. The sidewalk and street should link points of interest and activity, provide clean lines of sight and travel and include simple instructive signage.

This means a pattern of design and usage that unifies the pedestrian system.

It is a balance among transportation modes that will accommodate and encourage pedestrian participation in the street.

Equilibrium between transportation and pedestrians; encourages pedestrian protection from automobiles and bicycles. Also, it provides adequate time to cross intersections without interference. Moreover, it creates physical separation from fast-moving cars and signalization protection when crossing.

Devon's and WPX's efforts to form Oklahoma's newest energy giant are done.

January 7, 2021 - Devon Energy and WPX Energy have closed on their agreement to create a new company that holds a dominant position in the Delaware Basin.

At the end of September, WPX employed 600, with about 400 of those at its Tulsa corporate headquarters in the BOK Tower and the remainder in the companies’ field offices both in the Delaware and Williston basins. Devon, meanwhile, employed about 1,400, including about 850 in Oklahoma City.

Integration activities could potentially affect all of New Devon's employees.

“Everyone at the former WPX’s Tulsa office expects to get clarity on the future of our roles within four to eight weeks as the new organization takes more shape. That doesn’t mean the new organization will be done by then and in place — that’s just the goal for letting employees here know who will not be needed, who may receive an offer to work for Devon, and who will be asked to support the transition on a temporary basis during 2021,” said spokesman Kelly Swan. “Please do not assume that our 400 people will be relocating. That is not accurate. There are significant costs savings built into the deal's economics, one element of which is (the elimination of) obvious redundancies in staffing."
