NewsOK: Oklahoma City News, Sports, Weather & Entertainment

Got Anything to Chat About?

Yes, indeed, this week was pretty crazy, starting with news about the end of cotton seed and canola processing at Producers Cotton Coop south of Bricktown and plans to sell the property and move to Altus, the continued politics on locating a new convention center, the sale of the Journal Record Building, a deal to bring live music to Tower Theater, more intrigue about First National Center, the debate over mixed-use housing in Classen-10-Penn (including a new proposal for NW 10), and yes, the big one - Live Nation teaming up with the Criterion being built in east Bricktown.

Whew. Yeah, and that's not all. This is a fast moving news cycle downtown these days. I am just thankful I have great co-workers like Brianna Bailey who are really at the top of the game. So yeah, I guess we can do OKC Central Live Chat today. Start posting comments and questions at 10 a.m. on NewsOK, the chat will begin at 10:30.
