    It wouldn't have to be in that location to bring new jobs to downtown.

    Default Producers Cooperative Oil Mill Site

    Has there been any progress on the sale or development of this site since the death of the "Big Casino on COOP Site?" thread back in 9-18-13?

    The site from Pete's image in Post 11 said thread back on 9-09-2013 :



    This 43 acres holds a lot of promise and pitfalls, but for $120 million, who would want to take it on?

    You know, I think the Anara Tower would be perfect for this location. ...and it could be called "Energy Tower". ...something that iconic in scale & design that makes the world ask "why oklahoma city?" The entire area could be the Energy District and link to the canal.

    I want to like it, but I just don't.



    Here is the Turbonomics Tower which I think would be better here

    Plu Pan, I like that one too. Very forward thinking and would OKC that identifiable structure. ...and it could reach that height / scale that could be amazin. ... a great idea.

    The Anara Tower has several layers and open every 27 stories w/ large terraces w/ open areas. The large turbine on top would be truly amazing. It was scheduled to be 1,969 ft.

    I don't think Turbinomics would work. All those moving parts are a recipe for disaster.

    And we would probably have Mary Fallin and her buddies in the oil industry passing a tax on the use of wind, like they've done with the sun.

    Bwahahaha... breaking wind energy with a tax... we can call it the fart tax.

    Had lunch with a friend of mine about a few months ago, he said there is a buyer for this property. I would consider him a reliable source.

    Well, I suppose the death star as an anchor for the southeast corner of downtown would make for a nice tourist destination.

    I noticed that they have installed a scale at the entrance to the old Firestone plant.

    ... is this potential buyer looking at the Mill or the Lumber Yard?

    Well, maybe if we get some nice development around it, they can 'clean up' their property they plan to stay on and remodel their existing facility. I don't really see this as a major problem just depending on how things play out. If they wanted to do something cool and different, they could put the worlds largest cotton candy factory in front :P

    I'm not sure of their current practices or if the factory puts out a lot noise and smells bad. If it does, that might be a problem.

    Of course the land they will be selling mentioned in the article's title is the land on South Council Road where they were originally planning to move.

    This pretty much kills the tower development for The Lumberyard, no developer will want to build luxury condos or apartments next to a smelly industrial factory. I don't understand why they want to stay there, crazy, this kills all potential development in the immediate area. It should be the other way around, they should be scrapping this area, selling the land, and moving all operations to S. Council.

    This factory is an eyesore to people traveling on I-40, and will be people first impression for drivers entering downtown on the new boulevard. I'm tired of all the short sighted owners, who don't see the real vision here. Granted they tried to sell the land, but the asking price was way too much. If they were smart, instead of trying to sell all the land at one time, they should have cleaned up the area, and sold it piece by piece.

    This factory has no benefit to downtown or Bricktown, its a waste of space and killer of potential developments.
