119 Downtown Tour

2 Sep

The newest place to live in downtown Tulsa, 119 Downtown, is having an open house and tour of the model apartment unit on Thursday, September 9th from 5-8pm. River City Development is the team behind 119 Downtown; River City Development is also responsible for the conversion of the Philtower to apartments. The McIntosh Group is the architectural firm doing the renovation while Pohlenz Cucine Moderne is designing all the kitchens. One thing that differentiates this project from other recent residential developments downtown is that the 119 units are for sale, not rent. Click here for some great images and renderings of the project.

Located on the northwest corner of 6th and Cincinnati, Leon B. Senter designed the building in 1949. Originally constructed as the Stanolind Building, it has also been referred to as AMOCO East, the 502 Building, the Towercade, and most commonly the Service Pipeline Building. In addition to the 119 Building, Senter also designed many other prominent Tulsa buildings, such as the Fire Alarm Building, the Philcade, the downtown YMCA, and Will Rogers High School. Although not as flamboyantly art deco as some of Senter’s early work in Tulsa (like the fire Alarm Building and Philcade), the 119 Building is an excellent example of late deco in Tulsa that also includes many mid-century modern details.

The tour on Thursday, September 9 from 5-8pm is free and open to the public. For more information and to RSVP, call 918.582.0200.

119 Downtown

30 Jun

The urban Tulsa lifestyle is beginning to come into focus with the introduction of development project 119 Downtown. At the corner of 6th and Cincinnati, downtown Tulsa, this urban project will combine the historic class of the renowned ARCO Building (formerly, the Service Pipeline Building), built in 1949, with modern design elements, materials and technology.

The project will include residences as well as retail spaces with the anchor charted to be a restaurant/market, possibly the first place to buy groceries downtown. The project was designed by The McIntosh Group, will be LEED certified and feature Pohlenz kitchens, extreme sound deadening between units, underground parking, workout facility, common patio with bocce court and living rooftops to name a few. The units will range from approximately 600 sq. ft. studios to 2,600 ft. penthouses. Prices start at $135k.

The demo unit is under construction currently and will be available for viewing in the next 2-3 weeks. The sales office is open daily and several units have already sold. The building is open for visitors and has a lot to see already with the beautiful stone and historic charm.
