Project 180 plaza spurs new business
The last reminder of the largest failure of downtown Oklahoma City's urban renewal era is being transformed into an urban pocket park that will include a neighborhood restaurant and bar and a two-story mural.
The series of concrete passageways and blank walls on the Oklahoma and Corporate towers date to when the properties were designed and built to hook into a 600,000-square-foot downtown “Galleria” shopping mall.
That early 1980s vision by Dallas developer Vincent Carrozza was never realized, and much of the site ultimately gave way to the corporate headquarters for Devon Energy and the Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library.
