Any updates on the OnCue at NW Expressway and Blackwelder? No work has been done there for over a year now and they have a lot of money sunk into that project!

They are still waiting for their building permit to be approved.

A little disappointed about the Carlyle Motel being demolished. I know it was a dive today but I've always been intrigued by those old route 66 motor hotels. Not many of them left outside of very touristy areas.

Do we know if the sign was saved? Should go in a Rt 66 museum.

It looks like an OnCue is being built in Edmond. They are building a structure resembling the convenience store on 2nd St in between Coltrane and Bryant.

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

Any update on the NW Expressway and Blackwelder OnCue? I see that three permits aplied for in June are still pending.

I can't tell you what is being built there but I can confirm you are wrong about it being an OnCue.

The OnCue at SW104th and Santa Fe is going up. Framing looks finished, still need to bury the fuel tanks.

Slightly off-topic, but I was letting the ole random thought generator have free reign the other day, and I wondered what the world would look like if all vehicles were hybrids. I mean, we'd still need gas stations, obviously. But would there be one on every corner?

My guess is we probably still would, although there would be less of an emphasis on fuel and more of an emphasis on the convenience store part.

I'm okay with OnCue's spaced out on major intersections throughout the city. So far, their stores are maintained well. The lots are large, well lit at night, parking lots generally clean, and signage/exteriors look modern.

I do wish when OnCue puts the competitor across the street out of business, their would be a harder push to demolish a boarded up gas station. Plenty of small vacant corners are springing up across or near OnCue's locations.

I agree about OnCue. Great stores and all you said. However, I'm not excited about monopolies and believe that competition is a good thing, but when any business goes under, I wish there were more stringent codes on the dilapidation of buildings that reflect poorly on our city.

Building permits have finally been issued for the NW Expressway and Blackwelder location.

Work should be starting soon. Will have a kitchen but no drive-thru.

The OnCue on Santa Fe by the Capital just did a redesign and opened up a kitchen. I have tried both a bacon burger and a grilled chicken sandwich. For convenience store fair both were really good. Their pizza is better than 7-11's as well.

I agree. This problem is starting to become more and more noticeable as OnCue continues to expand. This problem will eventually correct itself but for now, these boarded up gas stations (usually Circle K) that close as the result of an OnCue opening up are becoming eyesores.

Same here. Their fountain drinks are SOOOO much better than 7-11's. It never fails, EVERY time I get one from 7-11 (which is not often any more, since On-Cue), it does that spew-out sneeze-thing into my drink which ruins the taste of the drink.

They are almost as good as QT's.

It has yet to go before the Planning Commission for re-zoning but my understanding is they have the general support of the neighbors and once the PC gives them approval, they will close on the property and start moving forward.

Oof. Surprised and saddened that the neighborhood is on board with demolishing historic homes. But I guess if that's what the neighborhood wants... \_(ツ)_/

I'm not suggesting they will, nor that it is cheap or easy, but the houses on the area can be moved. Probably. I recall within the last 10-15 years a similar sized house moved from the west side of N. Robinson at 12th (I think) less than a mile into Mesta Park? I think the east end of Classen 10 Penn is a challenged area, and the OnCue could give it a good development. Along with some geographic blockage. And there have got to be some cleared lots within a few blocks that would be good for neighborhood appropriate infill. The neighborhood values have improved enough the last decade that the projects could be financially viable.

The house I spent my teenage years in was moved from Heritage Hills to near I-40 and Choctaw Road sometime in the 70's.

I'm gonna guess much of the north side of NW 13th between Robinson and Classen was removed. Other areas cleared were around St. Luke's and the east side of Classen from 13th up to 22nd. It is important to remember that in the late 60s to mid 70s that area was just a bunch of old white elephant houses, that people inherited from their parents and wanted nothing to do with. People with money wanted to get away from busing and the other inner city issues. Also, the boundaries weren't as clearly defined as they have become. So, anything we would clearly define as Heritage Hills, Heritage Hills East, or Mesta Park could have been described as "Heritage Hills".

Yes you're right. I'm always interested in the history of any demolitions that maybe we didn't already know about. Bob Blackburn's book on the neighborhood from 1992 is insightful. Pretty much anything pre-1969 could've been demolished or relocated. BBQ Anonymous, if you think of anything else about the house, please let me know.

Thanks for this. It looks like it could be one of the G.A. Nichols houses (many are in the north-central part of the neighborhood). He built quite a few with the same floorplans but then trimmed them out differently, giving a lot of variety in appearance. I wonder if yours was originally clapboard, then later clad in the stone?

I can only guess but my guess would be that it was... I don't think the garage or the porch were moved with the house and they had the same stone on them.

Would be the perfect spot for it. Unlimited space to work with, and between the new turnpike interchange and I-40 a mile to the north, this location is going to rake in a ton of money.

Pete
11-30-2018, 01:57 AM
I keep a list of all their locations that are either complete, underway or proposed...

And by my count, they are at 45 in the OKC area.


7-Eleven has 111 in Central OK but of course most of those are smaller locations and have been in place for quite a while.

I wouldn't be surprised if OnCue soon surpasses 7-Eleven for revenues. That's amazing to think about considering the massive head-start and dominance of 7-11.

An OnCue there should make a killing with all the hotels around as well as the interstate. Not to mention, I look forward to that Motel 6 being gone. It's an eye sore compared to the more modern hotels around it.

The one at 66 and Kilpatrick has been in the works far longer, mostly just dirt work and leveling out the site. I believe the same could be said for the location at Blackwelder and NW Expressway.

They just have so many projects in progress.

Not only scores of new locations, but they are also adding kitchens in a lot of places, dealing with the new alcohol laws, etc.

I'm sure it comes down to internal resources and trying to be doing things right and systematically.

the area between western and may along the sw 29th corridor is begging for an on-cue gas station. at one point i thought on-cue was building a new gas station there on the sw corner of sw 29th and may but it turned out to be a small building. the intersection of agnew and sw 29th seems primed for an on-cue gas station though.

They have about 10 OKC locations in progress, plus they are remodeling several stores to include a kitchen.

I'm sure they'll get around to all the planned locations, but it seems they have a lot on their plate right now.

It's an odd layout with 6 lane NW Expressway and a divided median. Blackwelder is only 2 lanes and the north has the odd entrance into the Valliance Bank Tower and McDonalds with a frontage road intersecting it. No protected turn arrows for north or south traffic.

Is OnCue going to use Blackwelder and the light as the entrance, or will there be curb cuts onto NW Expressway, even though there is an off-ramp from I-44 to east bound NW Expressway at this location?
