    This is good and welcome news and a nice break from the new parking garage announcements...

    this is great news. The existing stone cladding used to cover the old storefronts makes the bottom look so heavy and cumbersome that the entire building currently looks flipped on its head.

    It's currently really awful at street level with the closed-off ground floor.

    Next on my list is for both OG&E and ONG to renovate and open up their ground floors to retail. Harvey needs some serious life injection (during normal times obvs) and these things (along with this new restoration) could help...

    It's amazing to think trillions have been spent just trying to undo "modernization" of buildings, rail networks, etc.

    Love that little entry! Might they include that?

    This is great. I've wished for this so many times walking by that building with its terrible "modernization".

    Pete, this is along my daily commute and that part of the wall just fell off of the building a couple months ago, I believe right before they announced the renovation. Are you sure they’re beginning the renovation?

    There are two sections where the brick has been exposed. I don't think both of them just fell off at the same time and in the exact same places on two sides of the building with the same exact amount of cladding coming off.

    They are currently bidding out the exterior renovation.

    Cool thanks. Glad to see this moving forward will be a big improvement.

    They took the cladding down to get a better look at the brick behind it so they could in turn get accurate renovation bids.

    They didnít come down at same time. Just FYI

    The part on northside has been off for some time now

    The point is that they have removed cladding in order to get construction bids and start renovation.

    would LOVE for Oklahoma County to rebuild their building too. A nice 15 floor highrise in the existing footprint would be amazing.
