Report highlights transformative projects

October 9, 2018

For nearly six decades, the Oklahoma City Urban Renewal Authority has been working with city planners, private developers and residents to revitalize Oklahoma City. OCURA’s recent annual report highlights some of the most visible transformations in the Core to Shore Project Area.

 

The Omni Oklahoma City Hotel recently broke ground on its 605-room, AAA Four-Diamond hotel adjacent to the new OKC Convention Center. OCURA acquired the land, helped to facilitate private and public participation and coordinated the design review. The hotel will offer luxury amenities for guests and several restaurants that are accessible to park patrons and the public.

 

Several new hotels in or near the Core to Shore area have added room inventory to accommodate the expected increase in visitors. Two hotels in Bricktown, the AC Hotel by Marriott and Hyatt Place, were built on OCURA-purchased land that had been underutilized. The Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott is under construction west of Shields Boulevard near SW Fifth Street. These projects combined will add more than 400 hotel rooms.

 

OCURA has acquired several parcels of land surrounding the north and south sections of Scissortail Park to spur private commercial and residential development. Requests for proposals are now active on some of these parcels, and established policies will encourage good urban design and appropriate development density.
