Western Corridor to Extend to Memorial with addition of Chisholm Creek

Aug 24, 2016

Long before MAPS 1 was a gleam in former Mayor Ron Norick's eye, a pair of up-and-coming restaurateurs built a small empire of independent restaurants along the North Western Avenue corridor.

More than three decades later, MAPS begat Bricktown, and from its success sprang property-grabs in Midtown, the Plaza District and Uptown 23rd, with plans for more nightlife brimming along the banks of the Oklahoma River, the historic Farmers Market and points west of downtown.

Meanwhile, the original Western corridor, between NW 36 and Wilshire Boulevard, has added Classen Curve and the Triangle at Classen Curve and is bound to extend to Memorial Road with the addition of the Chisholm Creek development and the impending Republic Gastropub, Torchy's Tacos, Fuzzy's Tacos, Yokozuna, Potbelly Sandwiches, and Sidecar Barley and Wine Bar, to name a few.

A robust economy, smooth commutes and tremendous schools are compelling some of the country’s fastest growing organizations to make Oklahoma City their home. Companies and trendsetters alike recognize that the economic prosperity in OKC makes it a city where you can truly create the life you want to lead.
