Even just a couple of years ago, a proposal by an out-of-state developer to build a 20-story tower with apartments and retail would have seemed like a sure thing.

But the proposal submitted by Indianapolis-Milhaus to the Oklahoma City Urban Renewal Authority on Monday is anything but a sure thing when it’s weighed against a competing proposal by Chicago-based Clayco.

Construction is soon to begin on alleyway and sewer line improvements in the general area now known as SoSA, South of St. Anthony's. Many new construction, modern design homes are being constructed throughout the area. Over the years, alleyways and sewer lines have deteriorated prompting upgrades. A program was designed utilizing funding from Tax Increment District 2 and the Oklahoma City Water Utilities Trust to improve infrastructure in the area. A TIF allocation of $500,000 was originally approved by City Council to support the program. Seven alleyways will benefit from the program with construction to begin in October 2014.
