The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Look them up in the Atlas

The Atlas Life building at 415 S. Boston in Tulsa, now an office building with 35 percent occupancy, will be transformed into a 120-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel.

Maurice Kanbar sold the 1922 building to Missouri-based SJS Hospitality for $1.7 million. The location is spiffy: between the Mid-Continent Tower and the Philtower. The conversion will cost about $15 million and should take about two years.

I'm gonna have to make a run to Tulsa to get a pic of the sign before it comes down.

The buyer is saying the big neon sign will remain in place. (Let's hope.)

I was just going to ask about that...
