Oklahoma City’s Film Row District’s Redevelopment Takes Shape

During the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area Realtors bus tour June 18, real estate brokers and business owners saw the progress of the historical Film Row District’s renovation in the 700 block of West Sheridan and Lee avenues.

Local designer David Wanzer gave a presentation on the Film Row District in which he discussed the area’s history as a distribution hub for all major Hollywood studios including Columbia, Paramount, Universal, Warner Brothers, MGM, RKO, United Artists and 20th Century Fox. Area developer Chip Fudge has spearheaded the quest to renovate the area into a mixed-used destination.

Wanzer told the group these are exciting times he says as years of design, planning and now occupancy are coming together. Next, he said, will be the area’s streetscape project.

Said goodbye to Hollywood.
