Uptown

The Uptown 23rd district runs along NW 23rd street from Broadway Avenue to Pennsylvania Avenue and Oklahoma City University. Uptown is home to one of the latest successful revitalizations in OKC and is gaining quite the local reputation as a fun, easy place to dine, shop and drink. The district is anchored by the historic Tower Theater building, as well as a major renovation of formerly underutilized retail space on the north side of the street in a development now called The Rise. Uptown 23rd features some of the highest traffic counts in Oklahoma City (more than 30,000 vehicles per day), as well as the historic Gold Dome building and a high-rise luxury condominium/apartment complex, The Classen. This area is also home to open streets events- a health and wellness project that closes down the streets to motor traffic to encourage walkability in the city. On these semi-annual days, pedestrians meet local business owners and community leaders while engaging in healthier lifestyles.
