TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa's old city hall has a new owner. Mayor Dewey Bartlett, the Tulsa Development Authority and Brickhugger LLC signed the final closing documents Wednesday afternoon.
Brickhugger plans to transform the building into a 200-room hotel and restaurant and turn the surrounding area into retail shops.
"With Brickhugger's past record of restorations and developments, such as the Mayo Hotel and the Detroit Lofts, this is a perfect fit," said Mayor Dewey Bartlett.
The company paid $1.2 million in cash for the property. That money will be used to pay bonds for the new Tulsa City Hall.
