The image links are pointing to Tulsanow.org instead of .net.

Here are the pictures:

Great... making the side of the building that faces the parking lot the "front" and the side that faces Brady the "back". What a fantastic suburban design for our "urban" downtown "contemporary" arts center.

The front of the building should be on Brady. Make  the parking lot the back.

Is the side facing Brady not going to have an entrance?  I would be disappointed if it really was just "the back."  Pretending that the Brady side would be the actual entrance would be a joke, since in driving Tulsa everyone will come from the lot... but I'd like to at least have the street side look nice.

As I understand it, it is really two buildings and multiple functions. The museum faces the parking lot due to the location of visitor parking. Retail frontings are going to be on brady, I believe.

Has this started yet or is the architect still working on the design?  BTW, who is the architect for this project?

Per Urban Tulsa, Kaiser has 45 MILLION shares of BOK stock, currently trading around $52 per share.

His philanthropy won't make him broke anytime soon.



You can't be a philanthropist if you don't have any money.

I think they are due to start construction in late 2010 or in 2011. Though the "happy spin" will have you believe its earlier...kind of like the 41st park supposed to be done in Sept. They all know danged well when its going to be done, yet the TW and or the spin on these things is always sooner than the real projected date. I dont know why they just dont tell us the truth or why the TW publishes wrong time schedules?  

I believe the design plans have been finally approved, so would like to see how its actually going to look. The renderings you have were early "general impressions/sketches".

To make it interesting the building is being handled by two seperate architectural firms. The Kaiser/Gilcrease side by one firm and the AHCT side by another. The AHCT is gearing up for it's fundraising drive for renovation costs. They just got their borad set up, potential benefactors discussed, etc.

Honest question - why would there be a rendering and announcement three full years prior to the beginning of construction?  Was it to raise funds?

I believe that was to help get the building purchased.

I've heard people talking about the Kaiser foundation picking up property around the Brady and Boulder area and that it is somehow related to this project. Anyone have the scoop?

Here's how it goes:

The "Warehouse" is technically several buildings glued together.

Kaiser bought roughly 1/3rd of the space (the west end) and is going to use it to house the $50M collection that was donated to Gilcrease and they have no room for.

One block north the Griffin's bought land where they are putting a new Channel 6 building. The only block in-between is a truck yard. Kaiser and Griffin bought this land and will turn it into a park in 2012 or 2013.

Cigar had his foot in the door.....it needed to be one project. Did Cigar ever complete his other lofts?
