Abundant Life:

http://freesearchitecture.com/Portfolio_In-Prog_Diamond.php


Diamond Building
This reconstruction of a 6 story windowless building into an 12 story mixed use facility is expected to help revitalize an entire section of near-downtown Tulsa. The uses will include ground floor retail, office space from 2nd through 6th floors and well-appointed condominiums in the 7th through 12th floors. Materials include a rough rectangular limestone base and columns, metal trellises and sunscreens and preformed concrete panels. An iconic rooftop lookout platform is oriented towards the downtown skyline, and extends the roof garden that overlooks the neighboring Veterans Park, historic neighborhoods and the Arkansas River in the near distance.

Wow.  That would be awesome.

Now if they can catch the neighborhood graffiti artist and tear down the gulag apartments closer to 21st, all would be better.

First things first: Inteller and Townsend are cracking me up...but point is to Inteller

Next and more importantly re: The Abundant Life building. Really? Wow! The architecture firm is local (right down the street on Boston AAMOF) and the design is outstanding. But who is the person with the Cheddar to pull this off? It is going to take a big pile of money.

Where is the update on the other 60 buildings on the "list"?

...or, is it only the Tulsa Club which draws interest?

I got stuck on the fact they had to break into an empty building to discover code violations, which do not apply to unoccupied buildings.

Existing provisions in law allow the City to both clean up and secure unoccupied/unkept buildings and bill the owner these costs, but the outright theft is government out of control.

The new $1,000/day fine was built and applied specifically to do so.

Did he, or did he not pay his Ad Valorem Taxes?

If the City did clean the graffiti off the building and apply locks to prevent access, these costs are legally applied to the owner, and, if not paid, would be grounds for a lien on the property. That's it.

They are not making us safer by the actions being applied. The intent is to get this building for next to nothing and use it for purposes of their own design.

To delcare it need be 'functional' is overreaching government role.

This deal makes me sick to my stomach.

Is that a heli-pad on top or a shade for a roof top terrace?

This is the single most important building in Tulsa that is in danger of being lost.
