    a chipotle or qdoba would be great. no existing locations in the inner core, so a win/win.

    With Echo's recent problems, I wonder how many employees they have left to move to this building?

    Anyone know?

    They are down to less than 40 employees. With the pending sell of 2/3 of their business, possibly at a very heavy loss, and capital markets closed for now, I would expect even more cuts.

    For all Echo's problems, work is continuing here on the Parkside Buildings (photos from Lingo Construction's FB page):

    They also filed for bankruptcy a week ago. That probably has more to do with it than the ‘Rona.

    Wonder why steve-o left that out

    They've been going through all types of problems and just filed for bankruptcy. I'm sure this 'interview' was given to deflect attention from this:

    Hilarious that the CEO is calling the building "The Zig." I'll give him some credit, though: he and Kate do know how to raise cash, even if they aren't necessarily great at generating returns.

    Kanady said his company also remains committed to maintaining Kerr Park “as active and vibrant as possible.”

    “We view Kerr Park as a public backyard perfect for lots of outdoor activity and we want the entire city to enjoy it with us,” Kanady said. “The Zig should be nothing but to be additive to Kerr Park and the downtown community. Now that Echo has moved in, our hope is the Zig functions as more connective tissue at the intersection of Automobile Alley, Deep Deuce, Scissortail Park, Film Row and Bricktown.”

    Zig short for Ziggurat? Oddly not pyramidal.

    They definitely have considerably less than 80 employees currently. Cut that number in half and you are closer to the truth.

    As for the bankruptcy, this is their former operated business line which sold at auction a couple months ago. They still have their mineral fund which has kept them afloat, but is struggling like all other companies in the energy sector.
