The former EMSA headquarters in the heart of Midtown soon will be torn down with plans to replace it with a four-story mix of apartments and retail. 

Plans submitted to the Oklahoma City Planning Department show the development, Classen Marquette, 1111 Classen Drive, will consist of a four-story building abutting Classen Drive, across from the Plaza Court Building. Restaurants are targeted for the first floor of each end of the building with see-through retail in the middle. 

The name is inspired by the original platting for the area. The top three floors will consist of 60 apartments with views of Midtown and the downtown skyline.
