“It's pseudo-gothic, pseudo-Art Deco,” Fitzsimmons said, “but definitely Oklahoma.”
The apartments, with high floor-to-ceiling heights, are being created with additional raised mezzanine lofts.
The Guardian, which is being renovated by Lingo Construction, is set for completion later this year. Fitzsimmons, who also oversaw renovation of a smaller apartment building at 815 NW 12 for MidTown Renaissance, is about to see his next renovation at 430 NW 12 take shape where an old office building is being converted into apartments.
“We are extremely excited about the project,” Fleming said. “Fitzsimmons Architects came up with a historically compatible, modern design that considers even the most infinitesimally small detail.”
Fleming said his firm also is moving forward soon with redevelopment of the Hotel Marion at NW 10 and Broadway, and the 1100 and 1101 N Broadway buildings.
“Everything has been well received by the marketplace,” Fleming said. “People are looking to downtown and MidTown for ‘live, work and play.' We've gotten to tag along with a lot of other success stories, including St. Anthony Hospital.”
