Another downtown skyscraper

Owen Canfield Published: July 9, 2013

Kevin Durant made big news this week, and we’re not talking solely about his engagement.

That’s big — young NBA superstar decides to take the plunge — but it’s eclipsed by KD’s decision to live downtown.

The broker for The Hill, a new development in Deep Deuce, says Durant has bought two adjoining townhomes and plans to convert them into one, 7,400-square-foot residence.

So if he wanted to, Durant eventually could walk out of Chesapeake Energy Arena following a game, stop by his restaurant (scheduled to open later this year) along the Bricktown Canal, then mosey a few more blocks to his home. How cool is that?

Bricktown developer Andy Burnett noted that Durant could live anywhere but chose downtown. “Imagine that taking place 15 years ago,” he said. Sorry, can’t imagine it. KD’s decision is one more sign of how the city has reinvented itself for the better in the past two decades.
