Construction continues at Wheeler with work transitioning to a more urban mix of housing and commercial space that will link the existing homes to the Ferris wheel overlooking the Oklahoma River.

Dubbed the “Spoke Street Shop Homes,” construction will start next month on three-story homes with ground floors designed for retail, office, makerspace or workshop.

Josh Kitchen, vice president of Wheeler Home, revealed plans this week as contracts were signed for four of the first 10 of the shop homes.

“The vision all along with Wheeler is to have a truly urban walkable and bikeable community that has a wide variety of housing and commercial types,” Kitchen said. “This product is very unique and innovative for Oklahoma City.”
