Urbanity Reaches Oklahoma City

'The Brownstones' is the name of a new housing development in Oklahoma City, an example of how urbanity is becoming a lifestyle choice. The video is highly promotional, but is worth watching to see the 'brownstone style" development in its setting.

"'I think the trend now in most cities is to come back into the city instead of keep sprawling out,' said Brenda Craiger, marketing director for Triangle Development. 'With fuel costs today, I think people's lifestyles are changing.

'They're not spending time out in their yards; it's just something to maintain. They'd rather get out and walk to the restaurants, to do their shopping and to events that they want to go to. In other cities, that's how it is.'

To witness the evolution, just take a drive through downtown Oklahoma City. All through the area, construction teams are clearing sites, framing condos and landscaping the future of the city. Historic buildings such as The Sieber at NW 12 and Hudson and Hadden Hall at 215 NW 10 are being renovated into modern luxury flats with Old World architecture."
