LATE BREAKING NEWS
TAP Architecture received a Distinguished Merit Award for our Twelve Twelve Building at the Urban Land Institute of Oklahoma Impact Awards January 15th in Oklahoma City.
Originally constructed in 1957, the abandoned, 4-story parking structure located in the Heart of Midtown, across the street from 1492 and Louie’s, has had a facelift. It has now been renovated into beautiful apartments overlooking the bustling Midtown area and a breath-taking view of downtown Oklahoma City and the magnificent Devon Tower. The building is located in one of the Oklahoma City's up and coming neighborhoods which offers a mix of residential, commercial, retail, and plenty of restaurants. The modern look of the Twelve Twelve Building brings a strong and unique contrast to its historic neighbor, The Osler, and is very recognizable. Together, with our client, we took an old, inefficient parking garage and re-purposed it into an economically viable, mixed use project that acts as a catalyst to Midtown's momentum. What used to be a neighborhood eyesore is now a neighborhood gem.
We embraced our client's vision to continue the revitalization of the Midtown area, striving to create a sustainable neighborhood in a clean, friendly, urban district.
Exposed concrete structure throughout serves as a reminder to the building's previous life and contributes to the overall character of the interiors. Interior finishes include: hardwood floors, recycled glass counter tops, progressive color palette.
The project includes 24 contemporary luxury apartments with mixed - use on the first floor. All apartments were leased prior to the construction being complete.
