residential space grows in okc
Throughout this past year, there have been several new developments in Oklahoma City’s residential space. Many of these, such as the Lift Apartments, are approaching opening day for their first tenants and many more developments are being proposed. These developments help entice new residents with affordable, high-quality living to Oklahoma City. In addition, the residential growth helps beautify the city by transforming vacant lots and solitary garages into contemporary housing.
The South of Saint Anthony, or SoSA, district has become a popular development area for modern and sophisticated urban architecture. In early October, developers applied for a new residential structure on the corner of NW Sixth Street and Dewey Avenue on an empty lot. The development features a three-unit, two-story condo building that will include one single-story unit and two double-story units.
Another proposed project just west of the three-unit condo building is being called the Dwellings at SoSA. These 14 individual townhouses running along NW Sixth and into Francis Avenue will feature rows of two- and three-story stand-alone units. Proposed renderings show designs of rooftop terraces and include attached garages, providing each resident with a private space to live, relax and park.
Meanwhile, back at NW 10th Street and Shartel Avenue, developers are preparing to open the first units of Lift, to start leasing by November. Once complete, Lift will include 329 apartments with 4,700 square feet of retail space and a 445-space parking garage that will allow multi-car families to live close to the heart of the city.
