  • Parking garage with commercial space proposed in booming west downtown

    A large surface parking lot directly south of the Civic Center will become a 5-story parking structure with retail and office space on the ground floor, according to plans filed with the city.

    The property at 601 W. Main is owned by the Oklahoma City Police Association, along with several surface lots in the immediate area.

    The surface parking has long been seen as a formidable gap between the central business district and the suddenly flourishing Film Row and west downtown area.

    The Jones Assembly just opened last week at Sheridan and Fred Jones to huge crowds and the prestigious 21c hotel group was the first to blaze the trail on Main Street all the way to Classen, an area that until recently had been run-down and largely abandoned.

    Now, West Village is under full construction on all sides of the 21c and Jones and in about a year will bring 345 apartments, plus retail and restaurant space. Stonecloud Brewery just across Classen at 1st Street opened last week as well in the beautifully renovated Sunshine Laundry building.

    This latest project will help bridge the core of downtown with this hot district and will also provide needed parking for another impressive restoration, the Main Street Arcade which sits directly west.

    Four levels of parking will sit on top of the ground-floor retail and commercial space at street level.

    The ADG design and the application by TBL Parking LLC will be considered by the Downtown Design Review Committee.
