Thread: OU Projects

  1. #876

    Default Re: OU Projects

    I agree this would be a great project for OU. Many large universities have a nice hotel either near, or on campus. I was on the campus at Notre Dame a couple of years ago and theirs is almost a centerpiece on the campus. If this doesn't work, OU should try one of the vacant areas near the dorms.

    An on-campus or very close to campus hotel is a nice amenity. I've stayed at the hotel in the OSU student union a few times, and it is so convenient if you have on-campus stuff to do.

    Took a long walk around campus yesterday.

    Almost completely deserted and all the buildings were locked.

    The truth is never embarrassed by honest inquiry.

    Believe mums are just in the fall. These are more heat-tolerant flowers.

    During the last president there were no plants in the summer. Glad to see some now. Beautiful campus.

    Going to be an interesting fight.
    Per the Norman Transcript, this project was delayed until July 14th owing to resident backlash.

    This proposed hotel is a private venture. It is not an OU project.

    Did you expect to see students there? Of course it is deserted since school is over and the virus going on

    On one hand I sort of hope it gets declined and the developer walks away and Norman loses a $25 million investment that meets a need for the town and OU. But on the other hand I really hope the council doesnt cave to neighbors upset over 8ft and allows the $25 million investment to happen, especially during a time when investment like this is needed. Its just 8 FEET! That wont destroy the neighborhood or town.

    Norman would be completely stupid to deny this development. However, and I say this as someone that really likes Norman, it would be right on brand for them to block it or screw around so long that the developer walks. I sincerely hope that doesn't happen.

    Yep, but I didn't see a specific thread for this project and it had already been discussed in this thread.

    Anyone have any other plans and renderings showing the proposed CC hotel?

    My interpretation was Pete was only referring to the shock of seeing it so empty since that is very rare.

    It sounds like they are finally doing some real fundraising to expand Fears lab. http://www.ou.edu/content/dam/CoE/CE...Lab%20Info.pdf

    I spent a lot of time there as an undergrad and had several classes there. They have been talking about expanding it for years, and designing expansions for the building is often done for capstone projects. Hope they include some space for the concrete canoe team!

    Selfishly, I hope it falls through because we park in the church parking lot there and I don't want to find a new spot.
