The Oklahoma City Urban Renewal Authority is awaiting response on offers totaling $13.5 million for properties targeted for construction of a new convention center and conference hotel.
Only one of the offers, $108,000 paid to the family that once owned a section of the old alignment of Interstate 40, has been accepted.
Urban Renewal director Cathy O'Connor said responses are being awaited from the owners of Ira's Goodyear and the former Fred Jones/Bob Howard Ford dealership that operated for decades just south of the Myriad Gardens.
The highest amount of $12,840,000 was offered to REHCO, which owned the former dealership. Representatives of REHCO could not be reached for comment.
