  • Shuttered downtown Holiday Inn to be converted to apartments

    Plans have been submitted to convert the old Holiday Inn at 520 W. Main Street into apartment units.

    The building has been sitting empty for several years. Its prior use was as a training center for the Institute of Basic Life Principles, a non-denominational Christian organization. Amazon Prime is debuting a new docu-series on the IBLP on June 2nd.

    Before that, the 10-story building had operated as a Holiday Inn hotel.

    Plans call for 204 apartments, an indoor pickleball court, a fitness center, a pool, and a dog park. Architect is Oklahoma City-based Gardner.

    The project would follow several others in the downtown area that have seen several older office buildings converted into living units; in fact, this building is directly west of one such property: The Montgomery. Occupancy of downtown housing remains quite high, easily absorbing almost all the new units that are brought online.
