Thread: Pull-A-Part

  1. Default Re: Pull-A-Part

    Seems like a very short sided approach to build the substation along the banks of the river. Seems like prime real estate for the future.

    the access to this entire site makes large scale development very very problematic if not impossible

    The access is no issue when it comes to large scale developments. They can make new access if the will is there.

    oh please it is done all the time in major cities. Pay attention next time you are in a major city and you will know their road networks are far more complex than OKC's. It is possible.

    We invented bridges at some point in the past.

    Bridges, tunnels, and marvels of modern engineering. China can build a 30 mile bridge into the ocean and Norway can build a 30 mile undersea tunnel with underground directional interchanges but we can't build access to this site. LOL

    Oklahoma developers have proven unwilling to do certain things, especially without state or city assistance. More ambitious developers don't develop here, so we get stuck with developers not wanting to try.

    Developers donít develop if buyers donít buy. Donít blame the developers. Blame the many in OK who wonít pay a penny more than they absolutely have to. For the most part, developers reflect demand.

    The main issue I think is the demand is not there for building access to this site but what BS is suggesting it can't be done is not true.

    The standards in Oklahoma are seemingly rising. There needs to be more money flowing this state. California has a virtual river of money flowing through and it's incredible how much people spend there. It takes me months to buy a designer shirt at Barney's and the person in front of has 20 items and paying the bill that looks like a receipt with a black card is 10 more behind me is the norm. Oklahoma needs more money and better paying jobs here.

    I also have noticed waaaaaaay more nicer cars on the road here than I did before I moved.

    I think their asking price is way too high. That's over $400,000 an acre, and this land has very limited access. Land on the other side of the river is significantly cheaper, and doesn't have the access issues.

    Realistically speaking. Adding on and off ramps to 15th street from shields is the only option. No one is going to spend the money to build a tunnel or a super large bridge structure. I assume access would have to come from cotton mill site which also has access issues. Also, dealing with the railroad is a pain in the but. A mountain is probably an easier problem to overcome then RR company.

    To the best of my knowledge, they own the 22-acre property at 2501 S High Ave (on the NW corner of SE 25th and S High Ave). County Assessor records show that both the old and new locations are owned by separate LLCs that share the same PO box number. Google Maps Street View from April 2019 shows that they had graded the site and were in the process of installing the same type of fencing as is at their old location, and they were spreading gravel too. I'll have to roll by there on my way home from work one day and see what's going on.

    That property at 25th and S. High has been completely cleared but not paved; at least not last time I went by there.

    Hello,
    I am not sure it is the best forum but it the closest one to talk about the big Pull a Part salvage yard close to the old cotton mill.

    It may not move anymore. The place was scheduled for sale after a move of the activity on S High and 25th but the city wants a lot of updates to this land before the move is allowed (like retention ponds). It may be too costly for the owner to move now.
    So they may sell the new yard and stay at the old one if the money makes sense.

    This is a recent aerial of their property at 25th & S. High.

    You can see not much has been done, so I suspect they will not be relocating any time soon.
