I’m meeting with a developer tonight who has a track record of doing huge downtown redevelopment projects involving old warehouses, office buildings and hotels and turning them into housing. We’re talking projects in the tens of millions of dollars and properties dating back to the 1860s. His portfolio tops $100 million in development.
This developer is ready to buy one of the largest vacant buildings downtown Oklahoma City that has yet to be targeted for redevelopment (no, it’s not one of SandRidge’s buildings). He also wants to buy some surrounding buildings as well.
The signature of the governor’s pen may ensure this deal dies a quick death.
Read my Main Street column tomorrow….
UPDATE: And the answer is… Bond Bakery.
