    Dolese announces sale of former headquarters property

    Doles Bros. Co. recently announced the sale of its buildings and land located south of NW 13th Street, east of Broadway, the former home of the company's headquarters, to Greyhound Group, Omega Investments LLC, and Bell & McCoy Companies.

    “Last year, after more than 90 years at our 13th Street location, we moved our support services functions to a new building in The Half to better serve our customers. We're pleased that, with this sale, our former headquarters will now be put to new use to further grow and develop downtown Oklahoma City.” said Kermit Frank, Vice President of Communications and Community Relations for Dolese.

    East Building

    The Greyhound Group has purchased the easternmost property. The company plans to renovate the buildings as mixed-use facilities with office space and six retail tenants, including a yoga studio and Tiny Bubbles Campagne Bar.

    “We're excited for this opportunity to reimagine the space in this area of town,” said Ian Duty-Dean, Director, ADEPT Commercial Real Estate. “All our retail tenants are locally-owned small businesses that we believe will add to the vibrancy already created by our neighbor, Contemporary Art Gallery. Contemporary has agreed to lease some of their parking space to us, and we're appreciative of that partnership as well.”

    Duty-Dean added that they plan to have the buildings renovated and retail tenants operational by April 15, 2023. The company has hired TAP Architecture for design and Clyde Riggs as the general contractor.

    Center Building

    Omega Investments purchased the middle building on the property and will house their offices there. They will renovate the building to include offices and executive suites and welcome tenants for all three floors.

    “We are excited to be a part of our downtown Renaissance and growth. We expect to move our office to one of the most exciting districts of downtown, Automobile Alley,” said Nathan Cao, Founder & President of Omega Investments.

    The building redevelopment will be designed by TAP Architecture and renovated by Franklin Build.

    West Building

    Bell & McCoy Companies has purchased the westernmost property and will redevelop it for offices and a training facility.

    The companies closed on the property on Friday, August 26th.
