Steve Lackmeyer: It's doubtful railroad quiet zone will be completed in 2013
The Oklahoman's Steve Lackmeyer took questions from readers in today's OKC Central Live Chat. You can join Steve's Q&As on Fridays at 10 a.m. and submit your questions about the happenings in and around downtown Oklahoma City.
Yes. Absolutely. I reported on Waffle Champion opening up in the 1212 Building. Saturn is planning to open next to Go Go Sushi. And I'm aware of small retailers wanting space in MidTown as well. Most of the downtown retail momentum, however, appears to be centered along Automobile Alley.
Are you as excited about OU's purchase of the PHF Research Park as some others are?
There seems to be a lot of potential with PHF being purchased by OU in terms of branding and better joint promotion of the entire medical district. This may be a good time to remind everyone I will be hosting my first Google+ hangout next Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. with several major players in the Oklahoma Health Center. We will be talking about development, promotion, design and branding. We will also have a live chat like this going on consecutively where you folks can enter questions for the entire hangout panel. Here's the key thing to know: I am told you do NOT HAVE TO HAVE a Google+ account to watch the hangout. I'll post more details on my blog, www.okccentral,com, early next week.
