Mayor David Holt and other civic leaders officially cut the ribbon Friday on the new streetscape in the Windsor District, a re-emerging retail and entertainment district in west Oklahoma City.

The streetscape project included improvements benefiting drivers and pedestrians, plus beautification elements to complement the ongoing investment from business owners along the western NW 23rd Street corridor.

“These improvements play an important role in the continuing success of the Windsor District,” said Mayor Holt. “This area along NW 23rd has a rich history in our city. It is already a fully developed neighborhood with restaurants, grocery stores, businesses and housing, but we want it to continue to thrive and we want it to continue to be a destination neighborhood in our city.”

The $13 million project was funded by the 2007 bond program. It funded improved and repaved intersections, new and reconstructed sidewalks, improved decorative lighting, median beautification and more along NW 23rd Street between Interstate 44 and the Bethany city limit.

It is part of the NW 23rd Corridor Plan, developed under the guidance of the Planning Department by a coalition of nearby residents known as the Windsor Area Neighborhood Development Group. The Windsor District’s development will continue to be guided by the Planning Department’s Commercial District Revitalization Program and planokc.
