    Probably not. But he seems like a nice enough fellow (that is, when he's not teasing his fellow OKCTalkers with tidbits of secret info).

    They applied today to demolish the steel building and surface lot on this site.

    Looks like they are getting ready to get busy.

    I hope they remember the lessons from Phase I about not doing pours at 2am.

    Crazy to think this is getting demolished. Isn't a lawn company or something still using it? I see activity in there every day.

    During cooler weather, it is not necessary to do the pouring at night. The temperature of the mix needs to be controlled and cooling it in the truck is expensive. Temperature is a problem. So, to avoid the problems in high ambient, pours are often started at night when cooler.

    New renderings of how they intend to integrate the two existing buildings on Walnut with new retail space:

    So, is the guy running the car wash going to stay there and operate with the rest of the retail around him or is the developer going to buy the buildings and repurpose them for retail?

    Yes, if you go back in this thread, there should be a link to a video interview from newsok.com, with the guy that runs the carwash talking about how they're to integrate the old gas station into the new build. Pretty cool if you ask me!

    Very cool. Looks like a project I saw in krakow Poland yesterday. I will post pics of it when I get back. They are building apartments over some historical buildings on the riverfront.

    That is just outstanding. I have worried about those buildings for years, and to see them in a rendering like this makes me seriously happy. Great adaptive re-use, and another example to show other developers how it can be done. The charm and unique sense of place that they will provide to this project is difficult if not impossible to build new, nor would it have been attempted here if the buildings had not been there to preserve and integrate.

    Projects like these - and I'm referring to the historic building integration specifically - inspire others to do similar things, and elements like those give a city its character.

    All the more reason for the Marion project to gain steam.

    Mr. Jones (Bricktown Auto Detail) will be relocated to the garage of Maywood I while Maywood II is under construction. Once phase II is complete, he will have a permanent home there.

    This IS totally awesome, and as others have said I hope other developers can implement adaptive integration/re-use into their developments. That is a cute little house, so good to see it preserved.

    I believe those are ancient gas/service station buildings from the very early days of automobiling. Possibly Phillips 66? There have been a few other examples of these buildings around town - often disguised within building ad-ons - but the last ones are disappearing quickly.

    Yes, you are correct in that it used to be a gas station. There are other gas stations all over the region that were built like that. I'd say 1930s era...
