Natural Grocers plans landmark move to OKC's historic Gold Dome
Natural Grocers, based in Colorado, specializes in organic foods and has opened several locations in the metro over the past two years.
The deal reached for the Gold Dome with Natural Grocers and its developer, Leadership Circle, calls for the designs to be approved by the city planning department's Urban Design Commission. The ultimate transaction keeps Russell retaining a say in the development design in terms of ensuring the building is not torn down or its historic design isn't destroyed.
“My goal was to own part of the property and develop around the dome,” Russell said. “But ultimately none of that made sense. So instead of scrapping the deal, we agreed to sell if we could stay involved and make sure what they do is what we had in mind with the dome.”
