The retail category has also been strong, totaling $4.5 million
in commercial permits. Downtown Edmond, defined as the area
from 9th Street and Broadway north to Danforth and west of
the railroad tracks to the west side of the Universit y of Central
Oklahoma campus, has continued to grow.
Yowell said 2019 has seen $2.3 million of commercial permits
for downtown Edmond.
“This year has been much stronger in downtown Edmond,”
Yowell said. “We think we will continue to see strong numbers in
downtown for a couple of years. We are at a point where we are
growing towards a vibrant downtown communit y. Vibrant means
open later than 6 p.m. We have a significant amount of restaurants
now. I think it is also a result of the success of downtown
Oklahoma Cit y investors who are looking for their next project
and are moving up to Edmond to look at our market.”
Looking ahead to 2020, Yowell said there will be a continuation
of activit y in downtown Edmond as well as along the U.S.
Interstate 35 corridor.
