DOWNTOWN SMILES: City leaders met at One Place Tower on Oct. 4 for a topping out ceremony, in which a potted evergreen tree is raised to the highest point of the structure. The $40 million facility is located across from the BOK Center at 2nd and Cheyenne and will contain six levels of parking, one level of retail and 11 levels of office space.

Space for new and established businesses, retail shops and parking are coming together downtown.

OnePlace Tower began construction in the summer of 2011. The $40 million, 521,696-square-foot facility will house six and a half levels of parking, one level of retail and eleven stories of office space. National energy company, Cimarex, is the first confirmed tenant of the tower and will use the space as its new Tulsa headquarters.

Located across from the BOK Center, the tower’s design will be more contemporary, especially in comparison with the historic art deco style that Tulsa is known for.
“My business partner and my vision for the block is halfway towards becoming a reality, and the entire project has grown to a scale much larger than we ever imagined thanks to Cimarex and their partnership,” says Bob Eggleston, principal of OnePlace Development. “Our original plans for OnePlace did not include office, but we quickly discovered the demand within downtown Tulsa for Class-A, new construction office space. We are pleased that Cimarex Energy committed to remaining downtown.”

Designed by Miles Associates and constructed by Flintco, LLC, the exterior of the tower is anticipated to complete at the end of this year while the interior finish-out, designed by Kinslow, Keith & Todd Architects, will complete in early 2013.

One Place Tower will provide 300,000 square feet of commercial office space. The 17-story tower will sit above street level retail and a 4-story parking structure. It will offer 24-hour, 7-day-a-week security and access control, 436 on-site parking spaces, 1,100 adjacent public parking spaces, and mixed-use offerings.

Future plans are in the works for a 90-room Hilton brand hotel, which will be in the City View Building; atop the hotel will be rental housing with access to shared high urban amenities, including a work-out facility, dry cleaning, room service, valet, airport shuttle, and indoor pool and spa. This maintenance-free lifestyle allows the busy professional time to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views of the BOK Center, Arkansas River and the downtown skyline.

Also coming in the future is downtown living at Legacy Building. The downtown condominiums will sit near the BOK Center and offer breathtaking views, expansive open floor plan, exquisite kitchens and sumptuous baths ensure that each residence is a stunning metropolitan showcase.

OnePlace Tower’s construction company, Flintco Construction, was founded in 1908.
The company’s operating divisions provide a full range of services, including preconstruction, construction management, design-build, project and program management, and general contracting. It has eight offices in Albuquerque, N.M.; Austin, Tex.; Memphis, Tenn.; Oklahoma City, Sacramento, Calif.; Springdale, Ark.; and two, including its founding office in Tulsa.
