Lincoln Plaza
Oklahoma City, OK
The 20-acre Lincoln Plaza office (top 3 rows above) and hotel/restaurant/retail (bottom row) complex was designed by Halley-Riek Associates. It opened in 1969. Over the years, the complex has fallen on hard times. It has been surrounded by chain link fencing since at least 2007. In 2018, plans were announced to renovate the complex and turn the hotel into luxury apartments. Work began on that in 2020. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Stage Center [gone]
Oklahoma City, OK
Stage Center was designed by John M. Johansen and built from 1965-1970. It was originally known as the "Mummers Theater" and was also called the "Oklahoma Theater Center". It consisted of three concrete structures connected by ramps. There were two theaters and a smaller unit which was used for a cabaret, offices, and rehearsal space. The award-winning complex was praised but also mocked for its "tinker toy geometry." Stage Center closed in 1986. It was renovated and reopened in 1992. In 2010, the building was extensively damaged by flooding and it remained vacant after that. In 2014, the building was demolished. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3.
