Norman residents will have another option when looking for a new place to call home.

A building permit was recently issues for the construction of a large apartment complex in northwest Norman’s University North Park district.

According to the permit, the multi-building complex will boast 303 individual units, as well as a garage and a club house. The project was valued for $24,382,522.

Norman Economic Development Coalition CEO and President Don Wood said the project complements the work NEDC is doing with the planned office complex and other job-creating entities locating there.

“It’ll be a place for people to live who work in the area, and vice versa,” Wood said.

Additionally, another large apartment complex at Tecumseh Road and 36th Avenue Northwest is nearing completion.

More information about the projects will be published in later editions of The Transcript.

Meanwhile, city officials and the contractor for Legacy Park on Friday created a punch list of items remaining to be completed on the centerpiece park.

Norman parks and recreation director Jud Foster said the rains have held up completion of the project. A committee is working out details for a public grand opening later this summer. Additionally, Foster said the park will include three adjoining restaurant sites where diners can look out on the park.

Foster said the first restaurant announced will be a Redrock Canyon Grill operated by the Hal Smith Restaurant Group. It will be located on the park’s south side.
