Sitting on a two-acre urban infill site, this locale was initially designated as an urban renewal property, thus shaping the development strategy around a central community green space. The emergence of Block 42 introduces a collection of upscale, contemporary urban residences to the heart of Downtown Oklahoma City. Comprising forty-two distinct townhouses and flats with one, two, and three-bedroom configurations, this project is a testament to modern urban living.
A notable achievement for Block 42 lies in being the pioneer urban housing community in Oklahoma to adopt a LEED certifiable design, operating under the umbrella of the LEED for Homes pilot program. Each residence was meticulously constructed to exceed the minimum mandates of the building code, with particular emphasis on enhancing indoor environmental quality and resource efficiency. For instance, the application of CME block facilitated foam insulation of all exterior walls. Our role encompassed construction management for the development of these forty-two homes, each essentially tailored to the individual preferences of its owner. Accompanying the housing community, residents enjoyed the convenience of attached garages and detached carports. The security framework incorporated key fobs for entry, and guests were linked to tenants through call boxes, prioritizing safety and access control.
