I know there has been some chatter about this on other threads, but I thought it deserved its own topic.  If you live in the vicinity of 21st and Boston, you know the site.  (Previously the Shriner's...uh...shrine thingy.)

I'm pretty excited to hear it will have underground parking, and commercial space on the ground floor.  Personally, I think it's a step in the right direction...and a better fit than the high-rise "Portofino" development that was previously proposed.

Remember "The Flats" project?  I just noticed a sign at 21st and Riverside indicating that a bank will be built on the southeast corner.  Is this part of "the flats" project...or something else entirely?

(By the way...what happened to the content of this thead?  Looks like we lost a lot of comments.)

I remember the bank being mentioned, but if I recall correctly, the bank is going to be between Main and Riverside, and the Flats are going to be between Main and Boston.  That's how I remember it anyway.  I remember it being a terrible location for a bank.

I belive that the bank is being handled by Coury as well.

Dear Ponder Inc....

I can empathize with your shock in finding out the content of the thread is gone...

It is that way with the bulk of threads in any category past the 3rd or 4th page.

Sad... very sad... If this is an effect of switching the format of the Forum it was not worth the switch.

Volume, upon volume of info is MIA... Either gone for good or wiped.... If you are fortunate enough to find out exactly what happened... It would make a nice "bullet point" for your Newsletter.

The location of the bank is to the west of the flats.  It is a different project.  My recollection is that the bank was approved sometime ago--I don't know what the delay has been in construction.  

Different subject, but same site--what is happening with the old restaurant on the north west corner?  It had said "law offices;" now, it says office space for lease.  They have done a good job, IMO, fixing up the place.  I hope something nice goes in there.

Here is what I know:

Coury sold the land to the bank, and it's considered part of the platted development, so he's keeping an eye on it, but I'm not sure he has much involvement beyond that. This branch will be geared more towards business banking, not typical customers, i.e very small lobby, few drive through lanes, etc.  They would like to start before summer, but are still in the process of contractor selection.

Also, the Flats are still a go, Coury just has a set number of pre-sold units he'd like to have on the condos before they start, and I think he's one short....Come on, someone sign up!

Just realized my original description is wrong... it's actually on the corner of 21st and Boulder... (Whenever I'm on Riverside, I exit on 21st, so I think of that intersection as the "Riverside off-ramp and 21st.")  Still, it does seem like a sort of weird location for a bank...Is there even room for a drive through?  (I hope not!) And access is going to be tough.  If we keep this up, we're going to have more banks than Owasso has churches!  I'm tired of banks...bring on some good pizza joints instead!
