  • New apartments and commercial for the Plaza District

    Plans are underway to bring 33 new apartments plus restaurant space to the Plaza District.

    Local developer Ben Sellers plans to build 25 units plus commercial space on the vacant lot on the southwest corner of NW 16th & McKinley. The property is just to the east of the main commercial development in the Plaza District and is highly visible.

    The apartments would be a mixture of studios, 1-bed and 2-bed units, some with lofts. Parking would be interior to the streets with a drive tunnel through the commercial structure along 16th.

    Facing NW 16th will be a restaurant space and large patio with outdoor seating. Talks are underway with a potential operator which would be new to the OKC market.

    Sellers is also planning 8 apartments one block south, on the southeast corner of NW 15th & McKinley. The site was formerly a small convenience store that Sellers attempted to save but was discovered to be beyond repair.

    The 8-unit complex will feature 1- and 2-bed apartments; the 2nd level units will have lofts.

    The projects would represent the first new residential construction in the Plaza. The area continues to boom with the recent opening of Oak & Ore and Roxy's Ice Cream Social, which joined a wide variety of restaurants, bars and variety shops.

    Steve Mason is also in the process of renovating the Indiana Center and bring in new tenants to the space.

    Once zoning is approved, Sellers hopes to start on both projects simultaneously, taking about a year to complete.

    Gardner Architects is designing both projects.

    Sellers is a partner in the Tower Theater redevelopment project as well as the a renovation about to start at 916 NW 6th, and is also behind the rehab of 600 NW 23rd which features office space and Pizza 23 and Orange Leaf frozen yogurt in Uptown.
