Residents moving into Oklahoma City's largest downtown apartment complex

The first residents are beginning to move into The Metropolitan, the largest apartment complex yet to be built downtown.

Construction is expected to wrap up by June on the north half of the sprawling 330-unit complex, which is on the east side of Oklahoma Avenue between NE 6 and NE 9. The $45 million project was developed by John Gilbert, president of Houston-based Bomasada Group, and its chairman, Stuart Fred.

“We started pre-leasing months ago,” Gilbert said. “Even with oil prices down and with the current economy, we are getting fabulous traffic and a great response. We are very excited for the future of The Metropolitan.”

The development, designed by Atlanta-based Lord Aeck Sargent, borrows from both the modern “arts and crafts” look of the nearby Level apartments and other developments in nearby Deep Deuce, and “post industrial” architecture of Automobile Alley.
