No it's not. The place is going to sell itself. I've seen drawings and it is modern and stylish and the price point was more competitive than our other downtown projects. It's a small property and will probably sell out quickly. The name will have no relevance. None.

I like the name. Not sure its relevance or origin. But it certainly doesn't sound like its from here. Which in OKC, is a good thing. We have too many ostentatious meaningless marketing names.

I lived in "The Legacy" for a bit. Legacy of what? But I digress. lol

Larry OKC

Or the new subdivision Heritage Oaks. While built across the street from Heritage Hall, they bulldozed every tree on the property. There aren't any Heritage Oaks left. They may have planted some new ones, but hard to tell from the saplings what kind of tree they are. LOL

But I do like names that at least give a nod to the history of the building (Montgomery etc)

Depends, I think it's been pushed back many times, last I heard was this past spring.

Also, haven't stayed at the Maney House, but my former employer has put up many there. It's nice and quaint and used frequently for locals with guests since there is no Midtown area hotel.

More from Mode:

Many have been speculating about the name of our first #OKC project, "Lisbon Lofts," as of recent so we thought we would set the record straight. "Lisbon" is the city in Portugal where St. Anthony was born in 1195 and since @saintsok is our partner in the project we felt compelled to make this "odd" choice. Today ironically both Lisbon and Oklahoma City have approximately the same population, however, OKC's population is on the rise and alternatively Lisbon has been on the decline since 1991.

I biked past this site and I am assuming it is on the South side of 9th.

I am curious as to why this site was chosen maybe I did not bike around enough but I did not really see the highlights of this neighborhood. There were a fair amount of rundown neighboring houses. Is it the proximity to Midtown?

As post number 47 talks about what inspired the project's name, I assume they are intending to market it towards workers at Saint Anthony's first and foremost. The happenings in Midtown certainly would contribute to the potential of the location as well.

Also, I think from one of the renderings, it looks like it will be on the northwest corner of 9th and Shartel.

Skyline

I find it very interesting that Saints is their partner in the project. Not a bad partner to have with Midtown/SOSA developments. I would think that if this is successful we could see more of Saints partnering for residential developments.

How many units will there be and what are the expected price points?

A lot of Midtown is rundown, or empty. For this particular project, yes that little neighborhood is rundown, but it also has seen quite a few modern homes built where there were no houses, or where they were dilapidated. The modern aesthetic of this project is going to play off very nicely with SoSA.

Spartan
09-11-2011, 06:12 AM
I agree, it's almost more intriguing than the project itself. The location by the way I think is more influenced by the progress in SoSA and the small cluster of MidtownR projects over on Francis. I think there is a vision that the whole area over toward Classen will be cleaned up and gentrified, albeit more low-density, here soon. SoSA is poised to take over the district.

As for Saint Anthony's, this is a major addition to the community and part of their neighborhood improvement goals. Their next phase of hospital expansion doesn't seem far off.

betts
09-11-2011, 07:26 AM
Once the school is built, SoSA will be within walking distance to it. I suspect the neighborhood will really take off with young families. I'd buy land there if I had small children. I'd probably buy land there regardless if I were interested in building another house.

St Anthony is very progressive these days and they care a tremendous amount about OKC and especially the Midtown area. They are interested in improving their existing facilities, developing new buildings on their campus (downtown and beyond) and improving the quality of life for their employees and residents within the immediate neighborhood through these types of partnerships. The development is on the NW corner of the NW 9th and N Shartel intersection and there will be 6 100% residential units and 1 live/work unit on the corner with street frontage. Choosing the "correct" site in Midtown to develop quality projects is not very important. The entire neighborhood is in a great location and has huge upside. What is important, however, is developing quality "for sale" housing that will act as a catalyst to improve the existing fabric of the neighborhood and hopefully inspire others to do the same. Our goal is to price them appropriately and within reach to the demographic of buyers looking to live in an urban setting and that will appreciate the design, quality and lifestyle our developments represent. The most important thing about the pricing of these units is that they will be priced for Oklahoma City not for Boston, Seattle, Philadelphia and so on...

I really like this area of OKC because of the architecture alone, the area is obviously very up and coming- definitely not there yet but I think it will be eventually.

There is a need for reasonable (under $200,000) single family housing in this area. Why is that so hard to find? I realize the profit margin must be too low or it would be done, I just wish that you could find new construction in the heart of OKC at an entry level price. These condo projects are great, but for those people who have animals and want yards, they are less than practical.

betts
11-06-2011, 11:57 PM
I don't know how much lots in SoSA tend to cost, because that can be a huge factor in what can be built at reasonable prices. I think, though, if people want under $200,000 homes in that neighborhood, they need to buy the lot themselves and find a builder who will build in their price range. Land available is probably too piecemeal to tempt a developer who can keep costs low by building multiple single family homes of similar construction.
