As referenced in today’s story about the proposed new Greater Oklahoma City Chamber headquarters, a different street grid was proposed to the city – and it was rejected. Here are images of what was suggested and mentioned by Grant Humphreys and Anthony McDermid:
The basic premise of this proposal was to take the E.K. Gaylord intersection with NW 3, NW 4 and Broadway – one that was created in the early 1970s as part of the I.M. Pei plan, and to return it to a more traditional street grid that would have allowed for a more urban setback for the chamber, maintain a sight vista for the E.K. Gaylord Building, and allow space for a new park.
