It's an exciting step forward for the city of Bixby's new events center.
Thursday, Bixby city officials announced that Spirit Bank will be the sponsoring entity for the center. The 65,000 square foot building will accommodate sporting events, concerts and trade shows as well as house luxury office space, shops and restaurants.
Spirit Bank CEO Kell Kelly: "the whole purpose of this is really to be a partner with our customers and a partner with this area of the state and so that is the opportunity for us. We look at this as more of an ongoing partnership more than a sponsorship really."
The Spirit Bank Events Center will be the cornerstone of a larger development. Regal Plaza will consist of 130,000 square feet of upscale shopping and restaurants and a large hotel.
The Remy Companies will build the development with all construction occurring simultaneously.
The 26-acre, $50-million project will officially break ground on September 19th.
