    The other day I was down there when it was relatively dark with the lights on inside...

    You could see they have made a lot of progress on the interior and have a completion date set for 9/19/20, although that may have slipped a bit.

    You can see they have now closed Robison between I-40 and the boulevard for that improvement project.

    The completion date is set for December.

    A look inside OKC's new convention center

    Construction on the new $288 million Oklahoma City Convention Center is set to be substantially complete on October 7, 2020.



    A new addition, the 4th Street Experience, will create a semi-covered pedestrian street between the center and the Omni Hotel. The Omni is scheduled to open in February 2021. 4th Street will finish in April of next year.

    At the same time, Robinson Avenue between I-40 and the Oklahoma City Boulevard is currently closed to be completely revamped and will include a roundabout at SW 7th and a signaled, pedestrian walkway between the main entrance to the convention center and Scissortail Park. Robinson will reopen in December.

    A new parking garage is under construction directly eat of the Omni and will serve both the convention center and the hotel when complete later this year.

    Despite the specter of COVID, I am convinced this construction will usher in a new era in Leisure and Hospitality business in OKC. Given time, it will help to boost image, tourism, conventions and also economic development. A great addition to a changing DT.

    MAPS3 Re: Convention Center

    To think that this was the project that many thought would end MAPS. The most expensive of any single project initiative our city has ever put before its voters.

    Of the $777 million approved in MAPS 3; the $288 million convention center accounted for 37% of the eight projects funded.

    When everything is finish Oklahoma City downtown area is going be really nice and comparable to over cities I wish all this could have been done 20 years ago. Now Oklahoma City metro area needs to update the roads and highway system for the growth that will take place in the city I have always said Oklahoma City had the potential to be like Dallas as far as entertainment. Now the City needs to go after big companies that are paying good salaries.

    Ugh, so much grey. Personally, i hate this trend and im glad it's starting to go away. I hope we can get in front of that and change the color pallet before the CC goes institutional gray. Too often, places stop at the cold blank gray and fail to add the color pop that can easily stand out. Wanna use that damned logo, do some artwork with it on the walls at least.

    The city is planning to rename SW 4th Street between Robinson and EK Gaylord/Shields after Mick Cornett.

    This is effectively the 4th Street Experience plus the vehicle portion south of the parking garage and north of the convention center and Fairfield Inn.

    Would be Mick Cornett Drive.

    You can see that Robinson is now completely ripped up.

    The stretch between the boulevard and I-40 won't reopen until December.
