Oklahoma City continues its expansion and development of new districts around downtown. These areas complement Oklahoma City’s sense of community and give its residents more housing, schools and retail options. One upcoming district under development is the Wheeler District, which covers the area from the former Downtown Airpark to the Oklahoma River.
Plans call for a nine-story Ferris wheel, originally from the Santa Monica Pier. The creation of this new district has prompted a strong resident response with valuable input on the Ferris wheel, public space and roundabouts. The district has already garnered interest from a grocer, retailers, restaurants and potential homeowners.
