Thread: Heartland HQ

  1. #1

    Auto Alley Heartland HQ

    I saw a tweet that was teasing an article in the Oklahoman about a seven story headquarters on the SE corner (I think). Any body know anything about this or who the company is?

    ^ Was going to post the exact same thing! Really curious about this.

    Yes, 7-story Rand Elliott building on the old Sanridge lot that is on the SE corner of Broadway & 6th, directly south of the Broadway Condos (now to be offices) and directly west of what will be the TownPlace Suites.

    If he did, I am not sure why he would convert to offices from condos. Seems a hotel would have been better, since, at least according to the teases above, this building has a tenant lined up.

    Sweet! One less parking lot along Broadway. Lots more in that picture that can be swallowed up in coming years. It's a rather odd looking design though. I don't think I've seen a building with that design before. At least it will be unique looking and of decent height for that part of Downtown. Any word on who would occupy it?

    I think Ross may be referring to the fact that the Broadway Condos would immediately have their view of downtown blocked by a larger building, haha

    Personally I donít think it matters much. Never thought Auto Alley had that great a view anyway since most of the cool buildings are obscured by that god-awful AT&T building.

    Since this is a Rand Elliott design and it falls within DDRC, how will that work? Will he recuse himself? Will they bring on another architect?

    Looks like Andy and David Burnett are the developers, Rand Elliott the architect with Stan Lingo as the contractor.

    Rand isn't on the DDRC, he's on the unofficial Auto Alley design review board.

    Ah, my bad. Since this still falls within AADR, same question...

    That's an unofficial body and he's been the only one that has been very outspoken, so I'm sure not much will be said on behalf of that group.

    This prospect is very exciting. I'm so glad that these huge wasteland parking lots are getting built on. My concern/thought: why in the world would they design a plaza on the corner of 6th and Broadway?? It's a huge lot for sure but why not split up the block if they couldn't fill it on both corners? Was this a design choice or value engineering? Why would the more (IMO) important corner be set back from the street?

    Not a fan of the huge walls around the courtyard

    Any guesses as to which company this might be for?

    Paper article says they won't say until its official.

    Yeah Iím wondering about the courtyard wall and what that would look like once built. Rand does great work so I donít think we would be too disappointed.

    For months, in conjunction with teasing this story, Steve has been cryptically referring to a major employer who is moving their operations out of the suburbs and into downtowns/urban areas across the nation. I know State Farm has been doing that, so perhaps it's them. Anyone else know of major businesses doing this?

    Anybody remember what was there before it was a parking lot???

    I agree, do they own that corner? Maybe they don't.

    Where the plaza is to be was the old Hale Photo Building, which was demolished a few years back.

    That property along with the large parking lot along Broadway (former Kerr McGee / Sandridge parking) is owned by Land Run (Gold Dome / The Rise).

    Interestingly, what is being proposed now is what was generally part of the master plan when SandRidge was blowing and going (building at upper right):
