  • Plans for Nichols Hills office building move forward

    The Nichols Hills planning commission and city council have unanimously approved plans for a 5-story glass office building at the northeast corner of NW 63rd and Grand.

    Currently, the site is occupied by the 2-story Nichols Hills Executive Center, which would be demolished for the new structure.

    The property is owned by an LLC associated with Aubrey McClendon's American Energy Partners (AEP). OKCTalk has learned the building will be occupied by an affiliate of that company. Plans also call for a single living unit on the top level of building.

    The site is directly adjacent to Nichols Hills Plaza, where two McClendon-owned restaurants, Provision Kitchen and Pops, are set to open this month. Directly to the south is the proposed shopping center proposed by Glimcher of Columbus, Ohio which will feature REI, other retail tenants, restaurants and apartments.

    AEP is currently renting office space ironically in several buildings formerly occupied by Chesapeake Energy before they consolidated their workforce to their main campus. AEP currently houses employees at the Harvey Parkway, the Atrium Towers and other buildings on the northwest area of Oklahoma City. They are also nearing completion on a fitness center for employees at NW 67th and Classen and also have plans for a daycare center immediately adjacent.

    McClendon owns large parcels of land on the northeast corner of Wilshire and Broadway Extension and plans have been developed for a large campus at that location. That project is currently on hold due to low energy prices.

    The new building is budgeted at $11.7 million and work is scheduled to start in December, with construction taking about one year to complete.

    Architects are AHMM of London.
