I will also tell you that list far from complete, there are many other projects they missed. It doesn't include the new park by Land Legacy, the three downtown Churches that are massively expanding, All Souls Church that's moving back downtown. It doesn't have the conversion of the old city hall into an Aloft hotel or a number of the new housing projects.

It also does not include the BOK Center, Oneok Field, the expanded convention center, all the streetscaping that's been done, the rebuilt roads and highways.

Put that all together and the total downtown over last 5-6 years has to be pushing a billion dollars.

Tulsa's growth rate the last few years has been in the 1-1.5% per year range while Oklahoma City has been in the 2% range. OKC's growth has been faster, but not greatly so and it's Oklahoma City's growth rate is nothing like fast growing cities such as Dallas or Atlanta.
Sometimes a slower growth rate is healthier over the long run if it can.be maintained.

It's a $120 million mixed use development. the first phase is a five story office building for Northwestern Mutual, second is a 17 story office building for Cimarex where the lower floors are the parking garage for the development, this is what you are seeing right now. The next phase is a hotel that has been reported to be a Hilton and then last is a residential section.

Tulsa (city) QuickFacts from the US Census Bureau

Oklahoma City (city) QuickFacts from the US Census Bureau

There's lots "happening" because there's so many abandoned/boarded up buildings and empty lots to have something "happen" to. Has OKC improved? Certainly, greatly. The inner city on the north side is far better than it was but there's a long way to go. And let's not forget that the northside is supposed to be the "nice" part of town. Even now you certainly don't want to talk about the south side, or the west side. Or the northeast side. The only truly nice areas inside the city of Oklahoma City that I am aware of are way out past Lake Hefner or up north of Britton or way down south by Moore. That's why nearly everyone with money lives in Edmond or Norman.
