A Heart For Midtown  
It seems that you can hardly go down a street in Downtown and Midtown without seeing the signs of residential construction. Names like Harvey Lofts, Block 42, The Hill, Mayfair Park, The Seibur, Legacy Summit, Central Avenue Villas, and the Triangle are now in the throes of development, bringing thousands to live within a five minute drive of our front door. The promise of urban growth is now being realized. It seems that Downtown and Midtown can now claim the mantle of the “new suburb” with the scale of their housing construction and population growth. Along with the residential development, new restaurants and entertainment venues are popping up everywhere throughout Downtown and Midtown. The renovation and development of Bricktown has drawn the attention of city planners across the nation. Events like the grand reopening of the Skirvin Hotel, headline musical concerts, the annual Arts Festival, NBA basketball, and major sports tournaments have become the norm in the once quiet Downtown area. In Midtown, we will soon witness the opening of Irma’s II and an English styled pub will open in the Plaza. 1492, a Latin fusion restaurant, will soon follow suit and open at its location on Walker. They join Café do Brasil, Subway, and The Grateful Bean that have opened or reopened during the last year. It seems that at least once a week the Business section of the newspaper carries the announcement of another new venue coming our way. Our community is growing and changing. In the days ahead there will be more homes, restaurants, and retail in Downtown and Midtown than ever in the city’s history. We stand on the threshold of what will be Oklahoma City’s golden era.
