OKLAHOMA CITY – It’s a landmark to some and an eyesore to others.
Soon downtown Oklahoma City’s Stage Center at the corner of Hudson and Sheridan will be gone.
That’s because demolition is underway this week.
Fence posts are up and the entire Stage Center area will be cleared out by September.
Recently, theater items were being saved for other local art groups to se.
The Stage Center has been a part of the landscape since 1970, but the building has been empty since 2010 after some flooding.
Despite the Stage Center’s unique and colorful design, the building is being torn down.
Kestrel Investments purchased the site and a new headquarters for OG&E will be built.
There is a live webcam posted at the demolition site.
The demolition will last through September, then the building process for OG&E will start.
