  • Classen Curve apartments moving forward

    After years of delay, plans are moving forward for a 5-story apartment complex adjacent to Classen Curve.

    Previously, the group that bought Classen Curve, Nichols Hills Plaza and the surrounding land Washington Prime had proposed retail and multi-family housing on the site, a move that prompted a lawsuit from a neighboring attorney.

    Ultimately, that legal action was dismissed and now the project is once again moving forward, this time without additional commercial space.

    The latest plans by Hines Development show a 5-story apartment complex with 326 units and a 6-level parking structure.

    Dubbed the Residences at Classen Curve, the new development would be directly west of the proposed Ellison Hotel, north of Whole Foods and West Elm and east of the under-construction Flower Child and Torchy's Tacos structure.

    The Ellison is expected to break ground around the first of the year and Flower Child and Torchy's will open in the first quarter of 2020.

    To the west, luxury townhomes are proposed at 6100 Grand.

    It is unclear if Washington Prime will sell the land to Hines or lease it to them.

    The Simplified Planned Unit Development (SPUD) had previously been approved by the City of Oklahoma City.

    The apartments along with the Ellison Hotel would nearly complete the development of the property once owned by Chesapeake Energy to the west of their sprawling campus.
