Thread: 400 N. Walnut

  1. #1

    Deep Deuce 400 N. Walnut

    This building is under contract to a group of local investors and set to close 8/15/14. It was sold just last year to an LLC that tracks back to Don Karchmer. We know the name of the primary investor but will withhold until closing; it is yet another local businessman (with partners) entering urban development.

    Preliminary plans are to renovate the structure to office and housing

    This was originally built for the OKC Board of Education in 1919 and was then home to the Toll / Turnpike authority starting in the late 50's. More recently, it's been a variety of other uses and is currently vacant. 17,632 total square feet, sits on just under .7 acres.


    Update: Sale was closed on 8/11/14 for $1.6 million.

    12/10/14: Plans revealed

    Yet another great renovation project and another local businessman joining the development fray.

    I hope its a bar selling food or smoke free. Otherwise it will have to be appreciated by my neighbors.

    Pete, any way to tell what the size of the area where the restaurant will be versus the housing component? County assessor is showing it is 10,416, but I assume that is not counting the basement.

    Would be awesome to use the basement as a bar and lounge.

    I went to a place in California called the Victorian. An old victorian mansion. The ground floor was a general reception/party area and kitchen. The upstairs was also a reservable party area, where the old shower was converted into a bar well. And the huge basement was a packed bar with a live band. Had to be the loudest experience of my life, since the band was playing classic rock and some alternative blues in such a relatively small space, acoustically speaking. Had a huge bar. Would be awesome to have an underground music lounge/bar.

    This is my dream development for this property:

    Kennedy School - Combined boutique hotel, basement bar, live music venue, movie theater and restaurant in Portland, OR
    McMenamins - Kennedy School Theater

    That is so strange. I had never heard of this property until I was in Portland last week. It is a few blocks from my step brother's house. Unfortunately, we did not have time to see it in person but it sounds so cool. What a fantastic reuse of the building. I love how the history of the building was preserved.

    We tried to stay there a few years ago. It was booked for weeks out.

    Went there with a co-worker while in Portland... it's pretty amazing and a unique redevelopment. Truly wish we had something like it here

    This building closed on 8/11/14 for $1.62 million.

    Don Karchmer bought it for $1.05 million on 8/6/13, so nice 60% return for a one-year hold.


    Should see plans to redevelop soon.

    You promised to tell us the developer after it closed!

    They've started cleaning out the interior of this building. There's been a lot of debris behind it the last few days.

    Here are some photos from catch22; you can see they've been clearing out the interior.

    Should be hearing more about their plans soon.

    I really hope they change the entrance to the building. the whole thing looks walled off and uninviting.

    Looks like the entity that purchased this property was registered by Babette Patton. Is this the developer or just the lawyer who filed for registration?

    I see people over there working all the time, seems like whoever is in charge is keeping a tight schedule.

    There is some sort of weird structure at the top of those stairs, but if that could be converted to a patio with tables and umbrellas and make a huge difference:

    I wonder what that is.

    Could it have been a water fountain?

    Wow. That is unrecognizable. Please tell me this is for sale units.

    Default Re: 400 N. Walnut

    Being as its not the most historically significant structure in terms of design, I don't mind the change. Will be a great addition to this area!

    This will be very striking and represent a big investment.

    I believe they had to add the new stairwells and elevators and that's why the front had to change so radically.

    I believe they will be condos rather than apartments.
