You mentioned in your article about the East Bricktown development that there are two phases - one with 250 units and the other with another 100 units. Everything that I have read about this up to now seemed to infer that there would be 250 total units. Are we actually looking at 350 apartments plus retail and a hotel?

Yes. The project always called for a future phase of 100 apartments, with 250 being built during the first phase. After talking to the developers this week, I suspect it's far more likely we may see 350 units built all at once.

Other than the new Kevin Durant restaurant, are there any other entertainment or restaurant options being built/planned for Bricktown in the near future?

Nothing of consequence. The big swing now is toward housing and hotels.
