Work to Start This Week on Broadway Park Building on Automobile Alley

Demolition is set to start this week on a 60-year-old former Conoco station to make way for a five-story retail building that will transform the northern gateway to Automobile Alley.

The development by Safdar Muhammad at NW 11 and Broadway is one of several infill projects taking place along Automobile Alley, which also is set to see construction of a condominium building by Nick Preftakes at NW 6 and Broadway and expansion of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation at NW 9 and Broadway.

Chad Elmore, leasing agent for the project, told me this week construction is set to start immediately (a $4.9 million building permit was filed with the city last week). The design by Haven Mankin is unique for Oklahoma City, with balconies on each level and parking attached to each level. The building is being built on tight corner, 75 feet by 135 feet, and will span 47,000 square feet.
