University Town Center
Paris Projects began working on this very large project since its inception in 2007. In fact, the work we've done in Norman demonstrates our ability to handle immense projects.
In an effort to promote area growth, the City of Norman installed a serpentine street through a 500-acre tract and then partnered with Oklahoma University to request developer RFP's (Request for Proposal) to develop their project. Paris Projects secured a copy of the RFP and an overview of zoning for the 500 acres, allowing for 200 acres of retail development. We evaluated the site and provided Sooner Investment, the developer, with preliminary and conceptual construction costs for the preparation of a development pro forma as required by the RFP.
Next, we assembled a team of master site planners and local civil engineers and developed a site plan that allowed for the use of the existing serpentine street configuration, saving the project huge infrastructure costs. Sooner Investment was awarded the project, and we began the ongoing work of coordinating designs, bidding, contracting, and constructing multiple phases of work.
The project was divided into four standard retail sites, a lifestyle center, and John Q. Hammons' Embassy Suites Norman Hotel & Conference Center. In the first phase we completed the turnkey site work for a +/- 25-acre SUPERTARGET. During the second phase, a 20-acre 180,000 sf retail project, we were extremely challenged to complete the buildings in just over six months. With two months of very adverse weather, we micro-managed the schedule, assisted the contractor in doubling up subcontractor crews, and supplemented weekend overtime work to meet our completion schedule for the Christmas season. Our bank inspector told us he had three other projects whose openings had been delayed until after Christmas due to extreme weather and asked my Oklahoma manager how we were able to complete our project when no one else in town did. He answered, “Because we intended to!”
We were diligent to monitor and maintain every project and construction schedule. In the third phase, a 28-acre turnkey site development for Kohl's, we worked closely with the building contractor to coordinate all site work and building schedules. Additionally, we coordinated the design and the bid, and contracted and managed the construction of +/ -100,000 sf of retail shops adjacent to Kohl's and completed the Kohl's project on time.
