    No.

    There is already a sky bridge from the convention center that will be attached to the garage.

    MAPS 3 convention center wasn't one of the projects we felt were that urgent until we started to look at the benefits afforded other communities that made CCs a top priority.

    It was then we realized that the 40 year old Cox CC didn't fit into the scheme of attracting the next level of tier conventions our city could bid on.

    Hot Rod, you are correct; our city should have gone with nothing less than 735 room convention center hotel; then we would have 915 rooms available on the complex. Come 2022, Omni will evaluate how they can expand; our city's central location will give us leverage. The key will be to keep our city safe for conventioneers.

    WRWA will need to keep up with the demand & supply OKC convention center will create--time is now to look at a $200 million airport expansion plan for 2022.

    2028 OKC will be looking at a $1.5 billion MAPS 5 initiative.

    I'm not asking about that bridge, which is from the Convention Center to the garage, but a potential additional one from the Omni also to the garage.

    For reference, this is what I am wondering about on the Omni:

    My guess is yes. It wouldn't make much sense to have a skybridge from garage to convention center, but not from garage to Omni. I don't know any other reason for a skybridge shaped hole in the perfect logical place for a skybridge.

    I believe those square holes are windows; they are on all sides of the building.

    The elevator shafts look very cool right now before the plarking shows up, the square in the omni could easily be access to the garage

    Convention center garage parking:

    Read a piece in the Oklahoma City Free Press that the garage will add 1,100 parking spaces and will be the most technologically advanced facility in the area--according to Embark officials.

    The new MAPS 3 Convention Center, Omni Hotel, Boulevard Place & the Chesapeake Energy Arena will be the primary users of the new convention center garage expected to take 12 months to complete with an anticipated November 2020 opening.

    Four companies submitted bids for the project; Embark awarded the bid to Manhattan Construction Company set at $23,581,030.89. The garage will have the flexibility to be expanded to 1,400 spaces according to Embark officials.

    Prior estimates for construction cost were set at $28,800,000.

    I wonder what they mean by "most technologically advanced". What technologies are they talking about?

    I'm sure it's more than charging ports.
    I'm sure it will have the occupied lights for every space with a summary of what's available per floor when you enter
    What other features have you seen in a parking garage? recently?

    Could have Pikepass type check-in/out. No need for printed tickets these days.
    Maybe have a location app.... sort of like Google Maps for the garage indicating your car's location.

    MAPS3 Re: Convention Center Garage

    You will be able to identify your payment by using your license plate # when you pay; therefore no need for a print out ticket to post on your dash board. Part of a feature we have with the new downtown parking meters.

    The original cost estimate for the garage was $40 million; now it's down below the $25 million range, also tech apps associated with your cellular phone service.

    Last week they were using Boulevard Place as a staging area. Now it's clear. Are they breaking ground soon?

    No. They haven't even filed their building permit application.
