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. Read the complete chat transcript here.
Could you elaborate about Major New Downtown Anchors. Will these be a corporate presence?
We are going to see a vast improvement in retail, cultural and corporate presence downtown.
Would you say that the odds are pretty good for the massive parking lot around the Physician's Bldg at 11th and Shartel to be developed into housing?
Yes. As soon as I saw the plans for the new 327-complex across the street I recognized just how incredible that surface lot is for new development.
What is the status of the Main Street Arcade?
R.D. and Scott Smith are slowly moving forward with renovations, but don't be surprised if this ends up like Plaza Court in Midtown where someone buys the property and completes the job.
What is the status of the Wormy Dog development in Bricktown?
I suspect we will hear new news soon.
Any idea as to when the "mystery tower" at the Stage Center site will be officially announced with presentation?
We will have no shortage of things to talk about during the Christmas holidays.
