Tulsa Civic Center Plaza Plans

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.

Tulsa Civic Center Plaza

I’ve always been a huge fan of the Downtown Civic Center Plaza and found a quiet time to get some photos this past weekend. This is such a well designed facility in my opinion and it seems like such a shame to see it so underutilized. Many of these buildings are totally vacant since abandoned by the City of Tulsa.
