Town Center Plaza
Midwest City, Oklahoma
Paris Projects played a primary role in landing this project for Sooner Investment. When Midwest City issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the retail redevelopment of a blighted area of their town into a retail center, they agreed to provide the existing structures demo and the land, as well as some storm utilities throughout the site. They were searching for developer feedback on a proposed retail project, including a master plan, a development program, and construction pro forma to form a joint venture.
Bob Stearns of Sooner Investment was tied up with other projects in Kansas at the time but asked if we would investigate and put together an RFP. He committed to assisting in some portions of the overall developer strategy if we could get his foot in the door. When we received the RFP package, we assembled preliminary teams, including a local civil engineer and a national retail architect, and went to work developing preliminary site plans and construction budgets.
Over a 6-week period we refined our proposal and submitted it to the city, competing with more than twenty other large national developers like Trammell Crow and Opus. Sooner Investment made the shortlist and was awarded the project.
This retail project is unique, being one of only half a dozen projects nationwide with six large anchor stores lined up across the site, to include Target, Lowe's, Kohl's, JCPenney, Marshalls, and Best Buy. We coordinated the site/civil, site lighting, and landscaping designs to each anchor's specific requirements. Additionally, we bid and constructed the site work and coordinated with the developer to design and construct +/- 250,000 sf of retail shops and buildings. We also constructed and coordinated the site work for 14 primarily restaurant outparcel users. By establishing and coordinating designs and construction with an architectural review committee, we maintained architectural consistency throughout the numerous phases of construction.
Outsource the headaches. Paris Projects does a great job handling them.
