  • Echo Energy begins work on new downtown home

    Echo Energy, currently leasing space on NW Expressway, has started construction on what will be their new downtown offices in the heart of the central business district.

    As OKCTalk was first to report, a limited liability company associated with Echo purchased what has been known as the Parkside Building in May of 2018 from SandRidge Energy.

    Once planned as the centerpiece for an ambitious SandRidge campus, the building was originally designed for a large auditorium, gym, workout facilities, and rooftop sports courts. But due to financial difficulties, SandRidge abandoned the plans, left the structure in shell form, and put the property on the market.

    To the east and south of the building, Kerr and Couch parks recently received a multi-million makeover as the building sat completely empty for several years.

    Plans show that Echo will take the top 3 floors; the 6th, 7th, and 7th-floor mezzanine, about 20,000 square feet in what is a visually separate top 'cube' of the building.

    The remaining 5 floors will likely be leased to other tenants, including ground floor and patio space fronting the park that has been envisioned as a restaurant.

    Design of the new offices is by Northwest Studio in Seattle.

    Echo will be moving approximately 100 employees to the building upon completion of the improvements.
