Urban Redevelopment: JDM Place in Bricktown


Working for Benham, Blair and Remy designed a major rehabilitation and addition encompassing 60,000 SF, at the elbow of the Bricktown Canal across from the ballpark in downtown Oklahoma City. Mickey Mantle Restaurant, canal dining level, penthouse club, and offices are included in the project. The addition of a clock tower created a reference point for visitors.

The building becomes part of the circulation pattern for pedestrians at street level and along the canal walk one level below. All brick originally in place was removed to expose the concrete structure. As it was replaced, new fenestrations were designed to open the building up to better views and give occupants better exposure. In addition, two floors were added to the building with the addition of passenger and service elevators. The building is ADA compliant on all levels.
