OKLAHOMA CITY - Downtown Oklahoma City continues to see changes in landscape.

The area around Reno and Hudson will soon be home to a street car system, OG&E headquarters and a new convention center.

Also in that area, officials are also developing a new area that will be commonly known as the Festival Plaza.

“So I think what you'll see on those sites are more high-rise buildings that begin to step up toward the Devon Tower," Cathy O’Connor, president of the Alliance for Economic Development said.

Right now, two developers have plans put together.

Milhaus is proposing a tower housing 300 apartments with an adjacent garage.

There will also be room for office space.

Milhaus' plan will cost $80 million.

Clayco has a $250 million plan for four buildings that will mix commercial, residential and office space.

Clayco also is developing OG&E headquarters.

Both plans will be paid for mostly by the developers.

"For a development that's this large that entails a piece of property that is kind of important in Oklahoma City, we want to make sure that there is a great deal of investment, that it's very high quality investment," O’Connor said.

Downtown Oklahoma City is losing a beloved restaurant.

La Luna Mexican Restaurant is preparing to shut their doors after 27 years of business.

The restaurant says they plan to serve their food out of a food truck and at their Newcastle location.
