The largest of four housing projects proposed to be built next to the future Omni Hotel was chosen Wednesday by the Oklahoma City Urban Renewal Authority as it proceeds with an unprecedented effort to build a public parking garage wrapped with apartments and retail.

The winning team, Rose Rock Development Partners, was chosen unanimously as conditional developer for the city-owned southwest corner of E.K. Gaylord Boulevard and the Oklahoma City Boulevard.

The $53 million Boulevard Place is designed at eight stories tall with 241 apartments, while the competing proposals were all five stories or less with 192 to 221 residences.

“This is going to be an eight-story, steel frame building,” said Tim Strange, who is leading the development with partner Steven Watts. “It's a big-league building for a big-league city.”
