From The Oklahoman:
The Oklahoma City Housing Authority is preparing to replace the aging Towers Apartments, the only public housing downtown, as it begins an overhaul of its properties.
The first step begins with construction of Thrive, a 316-unit, five-story apartment complex to be built at NW 10 and Classen. Once completed, the complex will include ground floor retail, 38 affordable apartments, 140 assisted living units, and 138 one-bedroom replacements for the Towers Apartments.
Ian Colgan, assistant executive director of the housing authority, said the two projects are part of a plan drawn up in 2016 to overhaul and expand affordable housing in Oklahoma City.
“The goal on the Towers is that all of that will be moved to what is being built at NW 10 and Classen,” Colgan said. “So once that has started construction, and that will take a while, our focus will move to the Towers.”
