The Hill inches closer

The Oklahoma City Urban Renewal Authority has granted design approval for The Hill, an upscale housing development in the Deep Deuce area.

A description from the current Downtown OKC Skyline Snapshot:

The $40 million development features 170 well-planned and created urban homes ranging in space from 1,387 to 3,100 square feet. Amenities include rooftop terraces and balconies on a select number of homes. Every home features large living spaces, elegant living rooms, open dining rooms, gourmet kitchens, oversized bedrooms, generous closets and bathroom space as well as enclosed and attached double car garages. Also, on-site concierge services, fitness club with pool and spa. Homes in this private community come with individual monitored security systems. ADA homes available and WiMAX high-speed broadband give residents of The Hill rapid-fire links to the world. The Hill residential presentation captures the stylish architectural reverence from the 1920 and 1930 heydays of the famed Deep Deuce District, with historically accurate façades influenced by the prominent buildings of the time.

And we're all in favor of architectural reverence, especially if it's stylish. "What we want," said senior designer Rand Sisk, "is for these buildings to look as if they have been here for years."

Construction will begin after the first of the year.
