    Bricktown/Don Karchmer parking garage proposal

    2,300-space garage with housing on top. This proposal is dying because it would involve taking away ROW needed for a planned future high-speed rail curve.

    Staybridge Suites

    The Bricktown Urban Design Committee granted a variance allowing the setback against city code and project is moving forward to construction soon.

    That was fantastic. Well, well, done! Very helpful because there is so much developing! What a bright future OKC has!
