  • Huge mixed-use project at NW Expressway and Penn set for rezoning

    On March 28th, the planning commission will consider applications to rezone several large tracts at the southwest corner of NW Expressway and Pennsylvania, a key step towards a huge proposed mixed-use development.

    A group led by Tulsa developer Ryan McNeil looks to demolish two large office complexes and a handful of homes and replace them with a complex that would feature a movie theater, hotel, apartments, restaurant, retail and office space and structured parking.

    OKCTalk was first to report on the plans last July when neighbors in the area were being asked for their support.

    Titled Penn Central, the conceptual design by architects Wakefield Beasley & Associates is similar to Avalon in Alpharetta, Georgia, a popular and acclaimed mixed-use project that was designed by the same firm.

    Under the plan, NW 50th would be realigned to tie into an existing light on Penn that currently leads into 50 Penn Place. New vehicle access would also be added from east-bound NW Expressway.

    If passed by the planning commission, final approval by city council would be required.
