As plans for downtown Oklahoma City’s First National Center continue to develop, there is increased excitement about the final product. At a recent chamber event, local developer Gary Brooks shared his team’s vision for the iconic building.
Three of the largest MAPS 3 projects hit a recent milestone. Operators were selected for the convention center, Oklahoma City Streetcar and the downtown public park.
The new convention center operating partner is SMG. Their convention center division operates the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, as well as 60 other convention centers across the country.
Herzog Transit Services, operator of the new Kansas City streetcar, was selected for the streetcar operation. The newly formed MAPS Park Foundation is led by the executive staff that manages the Myriad Botanical Gardens. These groups will consult, operate and manage the policies and operations of these important Oklahoma City assets. Oklahoma City has a highly successful track record for the development of MAPS and MAPS 3 projects due to close coordination, transparency and expertise. The coordination and cooperation of these operators will uphold the Oklahoma City standard.
