Beginning in 1997, my office was on the northeast corner of NW 13th and Dewey – then the Center for Nonprofits. My corner of that world was on the second floor on the southeast corner overlooking the old Mercy Hospital parking garage. I worked there while they tore down the old structure. There were only two places to eat – Boulevard Cafeteria and Kaiser’s. The sidewalks were broken and I made sure I always left the office before dark because I didn’t feel safe leaving alone otherwise. My how things have changed! Now Oklahoma City’s Midtown is a destination in itself. It’s not Bricktown or Downtown or Automobile Alley. It is an area well defined by its name and by its own culture. Whether attending the popular H & 8th Street Fair, or fine dining at Packard’s, or Viceroy, Midtown has a wide range of appeal. H & 8th (H meaning Hudson Street) Night Market is held on the last Friday of each month. It is a family and pet-friendly street festival built around a lineup of the city’s top gourmet food trucks and live music. There is no cost to attend. It has gained in popularity for all ages and all tastes. With up to 30 food trucks participating, there is great food covering a wide range of tastes. The first time I attended I could not believe the sea of people and yet how relaxed it was. Midtown is anchored by St. Anthony Hospital on the southwest side. Several years ago the leadership at St. Anthony’s approached the city with a question. They were considering moving, as other hospitals in the area had already done. They were weighing their options and realized to stay in the midtown area they needed to build a partnership with the city. They needed to know if the city was willing to invest in the area. Wisely, the City of Oklahoma City understood the value of a top hospital in the area and agreed to work with St. Anthony’s to reclaim the area. Since then it has been a joint effort supported by the City of Oklahoma City, St. Anthony’s and midtown property owners, developers and the city as a whole. Success breeds success and Midtown is an example of just that. The average person who dines or bowls or lives in Midtown does not understand the effort that has gone into the overall revitalization plan – they just enjoy the results. But the “village” that continues to work for the betterment of the area is due a tip of the hat! Recently I toured The Edge – upscale apartments that appeal to a wide range of occupants. I was amazed at the high quality details in the apartments. Amenities include a sunning pool, a complete and spacious outdoor kitchen for tenants use and a fancy, dancy dog park - all on the roof! The north side of Midtown meets the south side of Heritage Hills, one of the premier, historic neighborhoods in Oklahoma City. The east side of Midtown is bordered by Automobile Alley and the south side, a vital downtown area – making the block of revitalization and restoration a large chunk of original Oklahoma City. As a real estate professional I know that a healthy, vital city enhances the real estate market citywide. Whether we own commercial property or residential in or around Midtown, we all benefit from its new, polished look and feel. Oklahoma City is a wonderful place to own a home, raise a family and enjoy our diverse culture. I encourage you to visit Midtown and see what all of the fuss is about.
