Consulting Firm Selected for 'Festival Place' Project / for Public Improvements


Ray, Tim, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The architectural firm of Frankfurt-Short-Bruza-Associates of Oklahoma City was selected Wednesday by the Oklahoma City Urban Renewal Authority board of commissioners as the local consulting firm to design $1.86 million in public improvements surrounding the OKC Festival Retail Center site, which is now being called "Festival Place" by its designated developers.

If all goes according to schedule, construction on the public improvements could begin by the end of the year, said Tiana Douglas, executive director of the urban renewal authority.

The improvements include:

- A south public plaza on the north side of Sheridan Ave. midway between Robinson Ave. and Hudson Ave. Improvements to be designed would include a new paved surface, a fountain or other water feature and two towers on either side of a pedestrian area connecting the festival center site to the Myriad Gardens located to the south across Sheridan Ave. Estimated construction cost is $600,000.

- Repaving Sheridan Ave. between the north entrance to the Myriad Gardens and the south public plaza. Improvements to be designed would include replacement of the existing paved area with a new reinforced concrete bed and placement of a textured surface matching other outdoor pedestrian areas. Estimated construction cost is $400,000.

- A north public plaza, located northwest of the festival retail center on the southeast corner of the intersection of Hudson Ave. and Park Ave. Improvements to be designed would include some circular paved areas, leveling of an existing deck, other new paving, lighting and landscaping. Estimated construction cost is $360,000.

Improvements to be designed would include a steel-framed bridge, heating and cooling for the bridge and approach escalators. Estimated construction cost is $500,000.
