If 4 City Place apartments have indeed sold, and they are primary residences for local people, then a paradigm shift has occurred in Oklahoma City. That implies that the idea of living downtown is now acceptable to the wealthy in OKC. That was not the case four to five years ago. Pretty much, if you had large amounts of money, you lived in Nichols Hills, with only a few outliers, none of whom were downtown.

I'll do a separate list for Midtown / Auto Alley.

As for SOSA, that's very difficult to determine because it's mainly single family residences.

Gailardia is primarily an outpost of the nouveau riche. Most of the uber wealthy live in Nichols Hills. Except for the penthouse, City Place is probably for the riche, not the ubers. It will be interesting to see who else is living there.

The old Allen's Cafe - they're working on the historic bldg now, and they were going to build I think 4 townhomes after that. There's a thread for that project around here somewhere.

Normally, any subscriber can edit an article (plus others who write me and ask for access) but in this case I actually keep this information on an external spreadsheet, due to the calculations.

So, merely list anything that has been missed and it will be added.

Seems the Condo side is fairly out of date. The 18 Hill units under construction are still in the Proposed slot, and I think far more than 8 Brownstones are sold, and I would bet more Lofts at Maywood as well. It also doesn't include Lisbons 7 units, the Clark Building, Firehouse @ Deep Deuce. And I might recommend putting all "Single-family units" under that one heading on the chart...you can footnote the addresses/names so as to keep the chart easier to read.

Pete, I believe the numbers for the Guardian are short. It has 37 units.

Also, does this include the section 8 and other housing downtown? There are several units -- perhaps hundreds, in lower income buildings. These count for downtown residential as well.

If we were to assume the average occupancy is 1.6 residents per unit, that brings the inner downtown population up to more than 5,700 residents, not including the aforementioned lower income and special services properties.

There may be a nice infill lot too. I like tall, thin condo towers. They don't have large footprint.

It's extreme but even a couple infill buildings like this: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/18/realestate/18Deal1.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

How about across from the Montgomery?

http://dl.dropbox.com/s/h69axba712cqr8r/condo_tower_across_montgomery.jpg

You'd have the beautiful old Montgomery building on one side, already used as residential, and the Bicentennial Park on the other side.
Lovely location. Unfortunately, you'd have to demo a few buildings to clear the space -- could be a big problem.

Or...

To avoid demolition, grab the parking lot at Hudson and 4th.

http://dl.dropbox.com/s/wtzv21eg24c8drg/condo_tower_on_parking_lot.jpg

The Regency is just to the north and Legacy Arts just to the west, so residential would not be out of place in that area.
The views of downtown would be unreal awesome.

I like the idea of residential going just to the north of the CBD or just on the north edge of it. More people in that area makes good sense as MidTown and Automobile Alley and even Deep Deuce start to offer more amenities.

I tend to agree. That infill spot near the Montgomery would look great in the skyline, though. But there aren't a lot of amenities nearby. Oh wait, streetcar. Nevermind.

Teo9969
09-17-2013, 02:44 PM
Because the SE corner of 4th/EKG is probably not going to happen considering in whose hands the property likely sits, the lot directly across from the Buick building would really be a great spot. Easy walk up Broadway, quick access to Deep Deuce and Midtown, both of which will be substantially further along in amenities by the time any Residential tower is finished.

For mid-rise buildings (say 7-8 to about 12-14 floors) all those locations would be great. If we're talking a true high-rise (about 20+ floors) then it would definitely fit better in the skyline if it was in or very near the CBD.

Pete
09-24-2013, 06:31 PM
While it's not new, we do have the Regency Tower, which is an impressive 24 floors.

We also have The Classen (21) and the Park Harvey (17); City Place has condos on the very top floors (26-33). It's looking more and more likely that the Dowell Center (20) will be converted to residential. And further afield there is Founders (20) and Lakeview (15).

People love to forget/overlook these when bemoaning the lack of local high-rise living units.


I'm sure more will follow, especially if all the projects currently underway stay full.

You can add the Maywood Flats to that list. Work has begun in earnest now. They will be for sale housing. I don't know how many units - minimum of three, maximum of six in the first building. And we will finally get rid of those awful unfinished walls on the west side of the brownstones. Two more brownstones are sold as well.

Pete,

It occurs to me that this list does not include some of the lower-income and specialty properties downtown. Should those be included so we can get a more complete number of downtown residents? Or is this more specifically related to new / newer projects?
