Note the new street between the library and courthouse.

Brickhugger, owned by Tori and Macy Snyder, will negotiate with the authority on the sale of the site and development plans.

In March, Brickhugger offered the city $1.2 million for the site to build a 200-room hotel with mixed retail.

Omega Alpha Development also vied for the site and offered $1.1 million to build a 130-room hotel with mixed retail.

Both groups made presentations to the authority last week.

Brickhugger’s project cost is $29.5 million, which includes $23.5 million for the hotel, restaurant and conference center and $6 million for the retail development.

The project also includes opening Fifth Street from Denver Avenue to the Convention Center.

Construction is estimated to take 12 months for the hotel and restaurant and another eight months for the retail space.

    The designs are great. Old City Hall is not being used, and it would be nice to see an old building revived. The problem with this is there are already two competing hotels in downtown Tulsa. The second problem is that the hotel will be right next to (of all things) The Public Library. LAME! Doesn’t the old real estate text book say “location, location, location?” It seems to me that plans to revive downtown Tulsa are like beating a dead horse at this point. Hold a funeral, and move downtown to 71st and Memorial. That’s where everyone goes anyway.

    Downtown Tulsa is deficient in terms of number of hotel rooms downtown or they wouldn’t be building more hotels downtown. Developers do a ton of due didligence before they commit to a project and this one is no different. I think actions speak louder than words, in this case the activity happening downtown right now is all the proof you need to see that horse isn’t dead, it is actually up and galloping around. Jump in the car, come downtown and see all the people having a great time in Tulsa.
