    Default Durant Development

    For some reason the JR posted like 3 stories about new development in Durant, but it's nice to see the region growing.

    Great to see my hometown still growing! The Choctaw Nation's new headquarters and Regional Medical Clinic have recently started construction. When the headquarters opens, that'll free up about 30 properties that the tribe currently leases throughout Durant.

    At this point in his career I don't think Durant has much left to develop in his game, but I was very impressed with his defense in the playoffs.

    The first one is about a new movie night that might designate the surrounding area to become the city's art district. The second one is about two new fairly large employers who have located operations in the city limits. The last one is about new trails the city has installed.

    I know several people who work at Choctaw Casino Resort and there are plans for another expansion, including a third hotel tower.

    ^ That's awesome! The upgrade of 69/75 is definitely much needed.

    The old Bryan County Jail in downtown Durant has been bought by a great friend of mine (she was also my middle school art teacher). She'll convert the old jail into an art studio as she has outgrown her current location. Very exciting!

    Here's the story: http://durantdemocrat.com/news/local...ome-art-studio

    Cardinal Glass recently completed a 115,000 sf expansion. An 88,000 sf expansion to the Tile Shop is in progress. BrucePac (meat producer) plans to add another 150 jobs for a total of 300. Hitchcock Distributing started site work on their new $4 million facility in November 2016. Webstaurant is moving to Durant and will create up to 120 jobs by the end of 2017. New off/on ramps from Hwy 70 to East Main St have begun construction to serve the CMC plant, currently under-construction.

    Clark Associates, the company that owns WebsturantStore, is just adding another distribution warehouse to their network; they hope to start moving products out the doors to customers by summer. http://www.clarkassociatesinc.biz/letter17.html

    ^ Thanks for that.

    A coffee shop opens soon in downtown Durant's Wilson Building, aka the Opera House. It was built in 1901 and was the site of Durant's first court hearings. It was converted to an opera house in 1908 and then served as a post office from 1915-1919. It has since been home to many businesses in the last century.

    The shop will be called Opera House Coffee.
