    I am curious if the old tanks or anything else dangerous could be underground that they might have to dig out to attach to it.

    Yeah, it raises the bar very high, especially when it comes to prime frontage such as along Walnut.

    Saw an earth mover parked on this lot yesterday and it looks like that steel landscaping building has been mostly gutted for demo.

    Most likely the same place they held materials for the Phase #1. East of the pump station.

    I think it is no coincedence that Phase #1 is almost complete while Phase #2 is about to get rocking.

    Pete, the article at the top says 4 floors. But the drawings show 6?

    Probably four floors of apartments plus two floors for parking/retail.

    Application today for $15.1 million building permit for this project.

    And the building permit was for 7 floors. Lol now I am thoroughly confused. Good to see this moving forward anyways.

    1 underground parking, 2 above ground parking, 4 levels of housing = 7.

    Going to work in concert with Aloft to expand the skyline to the east and to give Deep Deuce some prominence in the downtown urban fabric.

    Now we just need south Midtown to get several 8 to 12 story developments and OKC coming from all angles (except eastbound I-40) will look incredibly dense.

    Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Is it me or is there just a different vibe driving by downtown these days? Especially from the interstates, OKC looks like a CITY now. The taller buildings in the CBD flow nicely to Aloft and the other infill that's being built. Amazing progress for this little city!

    Well... at least in the last 60 years. At one time OKC had 100,000 people living in close proximity to downtown.

    Density... We're talking several thousand people in just a 5 block by 5 block area. I don't think downtown of the former years had a 5 block area this dense with residential population.

    I hope Doug doesn't mind, but here is Deep Deuce back in the day. Granted they didn't have 3 story apartment building but the individual living units were less than 1/2 the size as they are today. Whole families lived in 600 sq. feet. Anyhow, it would be interesting to know the density of Deep Deuce after all these units are built. This highest density census tract in OKC right now is out by N. May and 122 at 8.611.6 ppl/sq mile.

    On edit, sorry, the highest is actually Midtown at 9,645 ppl/sq mile. N. May is #2.

    When deep deuce is filled out, it will be more dense than that. I see single family homes on the site of Level and Maywood lofts. dd will soon be filled with entire blocks of 4-5 story apartments. That's more dense than anything in that picture.

    Kind of makes you wonder how long the Deep Deuce Apartments will be around doesn't it. When they were built everyone raved about how dense they were, but now they look like a lot of wasted space. Level did in 1 block what took DDA 5 blocks.

    I was under the impression much of the "wasted" space was due to easements and OCURA owned land and such...

  25. Default Re: Maywood Apartments Phase II

    Compared to Maywood II they are wasting both vertical space (2/3 story vs. 4/5 story) and a lot of surface parking behind the buildings. Not to detract any further from the thread but the transition from DDA to Maywood II mirrors the transit downtown is seeing in general. As land becomes in short supply the only solution is to go up or expand the walkable area being developed (which is where the streetcar comes in).
