When we last heard about the Springhill Suites proposed for Deep Deuce, residents were protesting the project’s design and the developer, Atul Patel, was a no-show at the Downtown Design Review Committee when his application came up for consideration.
The application was then pulled before the meeting last week. I’ve attempted repeatedly to contact Patel, but he is not returning my calls. I have since learned that he has decided to move this project to another property he owns along the south side of Sheridan Avenue at Byers (part of the old Stewart Metal Fabricators complex). Will he stick with this design? Will he have any better luck with the Bricktown Design Review Committee? Will he eventually pitch another hotel for the Deep Deuce site?
At this point, these are all questions we can only hope Dr. Patel will ultimately answer.
