The Gold Dome was built 1958 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It also considered a landmark along the old Route 66 path through Oklahoma City.

“We feel the Gold Dome is an Oklahoma City icon,” Cunningham said. “It should be around for future generations to appreciate. We feel to not restore it and revitalize it would be unfortunate.”

Neither Box nor Cunningham would disclose the sales price or a timeline for renovations, though a groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for July. Box, also owner of the Greens County Club and Box Talent, said they also are looking to separately develop the surface parking to the east of the Gold Dome.

Talks between the two parties started 60 days ago; Box described the negotiations as a fast-moving process.

“TEEMCO wants the dome to stay,” Box said. “I want it to stay. And they're willing to make that happen.”
