Bang for one’s buck

There was $1.8 million budgeted for land acquisition for the new Oklahoma City Thunder practice facility, and they won’t have to spend all of it:

The city council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve an agreement to buy the land, which is owned by Integris. The city will pay $497,843 for the land, about $100,000 less than what an independent appraiser said it was worth.

But here’s the neat part:

The land is at NE 95 and N Oklahoma Avenue, just east of the McBride Clinic Orthopedic Hospital at 9600 N Broadway Extension.

Right in back of it, if I’ve counted my blocks correctly. You can’t get a whole lot more convenient than that.
