Article Photos: Former Bob Howard Downtown Ford dealership emerges as favored site for OKC convention center 4/4

The sites ranked best and worst among the three finalists for a new convention center are shown in this photo. The option ranked highest by Populous, a consultant hired to evaluate the sites, and a committee tasked with overseeing the selection, favor the former Bob Howard Downtown Ford dealership shown just south of the Myriad Gardens. A site previously and still rejected by the committee, but brought back by Populous, includes the electric substation shown south of the Oklahoma City Arena. The current Cox Convention Center is shown in the middle of the photo. <strong>JIM BECKEL</strong>
