    Reading this forum sometimes makes me go crazy trying to follow who is who. I swear there is 20+ frequent poster "sooner" variation names. There was just 3 in a row on the last page and my brain was telling me it was the same person over and over.

    Anyways, is this project still planned to be built in "phases"? I feel like I remember it being building 1 & 2, and half the garage, then comes the final structure or something.

    @soonerguru: count me in, looks like they’re running out of ideas.

    The design is good. If they would just take all of the grey colored cladding and use natural colored brick this thing would be beautiful. The texture of the brick coming around that curved façade would be amazing. Its not bad it just needs some depth. The grey cladding makes it look a little cold and cheap.

    Regardless, this lot is extremely important and this development will go a long way in connecting the CBD with Auto Alley and Deep Deuce.

    Are we sure what the actual surface finish is?

    Me neither. Agree that this will be a great addition. But the greyness is sad.

    Grey,tan, brown. What's the difference? They are all neutrals. Grey at least is a contemporary color.

    This project incorporates several warm shades of grays highlighted in white trims. A good design IMO as more housing options are added
    to the CBD. True it doesn't have the outside hanging balconies you're accustomed to seeing with many of the most recent housing developments or is it situated for any outstanding views of the skyline.

    Looks as though there are some inner atrium areas as pictured in these good pics Pete presented.





    BTW: Any news on OCURA's final plan approval for this project.

    my ONLY contention, besides the lack of height (should be at least 10 floors for one bldg), that the parking couldn't be underneath and balconies [since these are a theme for OKC that most on here seem to 'accept'] is the open air garage facing deep deuce. One could argue this lack-of-design is a latest attempt to finger deep deuce, but I wont.

    However, I would say it needs to be amended before final approval - at least have the façade continue the entire garage.

    This project reminds me kinda of Novel in Bishop Arts in Dallas.

    Would love to see some 15 & 20 story high rises on the Oklahoma River.

    OCURA "suggested" that they close off the east side of the garage, and improve some landscaping (meaning they will close off that garage and improve landscaping).

    This has been on the Humpreys & Partners website for years. I like looking at it every now and then. I'm sure this development will never happen but they keep it on their website.

    a) unclear on where in bricktown this would/could go, I'd prefer to see it next to scissortail myself
    b) yes let's confuse folks by have two developments called "The Hill" within .5 miles of each other

    ^

    That was a pie-in-the-sky development proposed for the area between OKC Boulevard and the Producer's Coop.

    The property is owned by the Mazaheri group.

    I have to admit I'm super excited about the prospect of 264 affordable units downtown coming online.

    Anyone care to venture how "affordable" is defined here price wise?

    I don't think these proposed buildings are the prettiest but this is a huge improvement over the currently mostly empty lot, with a little bit of parking. We forget how much empty or underdeveloped land is available, even in and near the CBD!

    Hopefully this can spur infrastructure improvements to both EKG and NW 4 here. If that doesn't come along as part of the deal, then these units will feel extremely isolated because this is not an area where it's easy to get across either of those roads, especially at rush hour when the "highway hypnosis" kicks in (was nearly hit multiple times disembarking from buses across from the 4th Street Y, lol).

    yep. let's just settle as usual.

    IIRC it is 80% of market rate ..

    Is the market rate indexed for OKC, or just the downtown area? I would guess a studio would run about $1,000 downtown; a small bedroom $1,200. So, say it's a small one bedroom, that would be about $960 / month. Not exactly a great deal but doable for a lot of service workers I guess.
