So,  I have seen so far is the work on the warehouse and the lot to the east.  The new construction is slated to be on the southwest corner.  As yet they haven't touched it.  I'm just wondering what the holdup is.  Are they waiting ont the parks geothermal wells to finish?

That said, they started putting i beams in to create part of the entrance on the matthews side.  Pretty exciting.

Also, can we keep the heating and cooling puns to a minimum.  there are children on here.  Smiley (not really)

Actually, I might be a child, depending on your cut off age. Wink

As for the rest of your post, I have also wondered why no work is being done on the new building. Anyone know?

No.  We cannot.  They are just too punny to pass up.

(Children should not be allowed here!  It gets too rough for their tender ears!  {Joking - they hear much worse at school...!})

This is having a chilling effect on the topic.

Awesome news! That means they must've just started within the past few days. I am SO excited to see this building rise up.

They've taken the second half of the building down to the cement floors and supports.  I'm assuming the facade must be coming soon.

Most of the holes have been filled in and the dirt leveled in the geothermal park across the street. They must be getting somewhat close to completion.

Bravo.  Was wondering what they were doing in that part of the building.  Knew some people who knew, but they weren't saying lol.  Gonna be some really neat stuff in the Brady here soon, and several "neat stuff" at that.  This town SO needs it lol.

I wish it had been more positive instead of "One of the racist, backwards, stuck in the 50's flyover states is finally coming into the 21st century and recognizing one of their own."

It's all good....Tulsa is changing for the better....don't hate the Tate. This will do more for the Brady than the Areama.....for a lot less money.

Ah well . . . it IS the NY Times.  What else are they gonna say? 

Also:  I'm actually stoked that one of the racist backwards stuck in the 50's flyover states is finally coming into the 21st Century and recognizing one of its own.  It's about damn time.
