Humphreys is wrapping up construction on downtown's Block 42 condominiums and is planning to start construction on the nearby Flatiron mixed-use development this summer. He also is working on a mixed-use development on the former Downtown Airpark along the Oklahoma River. Humphreys said other developments are in the works, and the final location for the Ferris wheel has yet to be decided.
"It looked like a great opportunity, and it's at the right price with a lot of rich history,” Humphreys said.
"It's done a great job making memories for families in California — it's a beloved center of fun and amusement for southern California, and I think it will do the same for families in Oklahoma.”
