Makeover planned for Midtown garage in Oklahoma City
A longtime eyesore in Midtown may soon be redeveloped and turned into a mix of restaurants and retail pending a sale to Northline Development.
The former service station, garage and car dealership at 308 NW 10 consists of three adjoining buildings, the oldest of which was built in 1923. Tenants included a Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealership from 1932 to 1942, and in later years a tire shop.
Baker said she hopes renovations can start soon after the purchase is completed and plans are approved by the Downtown Design Review Committee. One letter of intent has been signed with a successful local restaurant operator.
A look past clutter
Baker admits the property currently isn't much to look at. But inside the building filled with old transmissions, cars and vending machines, Baker looks past the clutter and sees a great old building.
“I see the windows, I see the brick walls, I see the barrel roof and skylights,” Baker said. “We plan on replacing all the windows, rebuilding the roof, and we will sandblast the paint off the brick and see what is under there. If it's in good shape, we want to keep it; if not, we will repaint it with a light color.”
