After the success of Broadway breakfast hotspot Hatch, a second location is set for north Oklahoma City.

Fitzsimmons Architects, the designers behind the first Hatch, have included many of the first model’s designs in its plans for the second Hatch model, set for the Chisholm Creek development at Memorial and Western.

The new location - between Fuzzy’s Tacos and Republic - will have a second level and patio as well as a breakfast bar.

Chisholm Creek in north Oklahoma City is adding new tenants to its Tract 30 retail and office building while construction continues on its Westgate at Chisholm Creek entrance.

The Medallion Group, Chisholm Creek's developer, also has announced it is about to begin building two more segments of its 190-acre project, which is bordered by Western and Pennsylvania avenues and Memorial Road.

Every time Thrive hires a new employee, Taylor Richardson, chief executive of the residential and commercial independent insurance agency, takes his entire team to happy hour the following Friday.

These days, that's an easy thing for Richardson to make happen, as his company, the beginning of the year, moved into Chisholm Creek's Tract 30 development south of the Kilpatrick Turnpike off Western Avenue. Thrive — which Richardson recently re-branded with a new name and logo — leases 6,300 square feet of sunlit third-floor space, just above Fuzzy's Taco Shop.

OKLAHOMA CITY – Chisholm Creek’s first residential development will open this summer, with leasing starting next month.

Cornerstone Development President and CEO Gary Brooks said the 287­unit apartment complex’s construction timeline is ahead of schedule. The property is at the corner of N. Blackwelder Avenue and W. Memorial Road. It was planned with a two­ year build.

On the development front, the second half of the year was characterized by the completion or near completion of planned projects: The Market at Czech Hall is nearing completion of phase one including Academy, Ross & Marshalls (approximately 180,000 square feet); Sooner Rose at Southeast 15th & Sooner with Academy and Hobby Lobby; Shoppes at Quail Springs is nearly complete as well (96,000 square feet); University North Park has added two outbuildings and three stand-alone restaurants; Winco is under construction in Moore and will start construction soon in three other locations; Chi

OKLAHOMA CITY – Yokozuna sushi and Pan-Asian restaurant in Chisholm Creek’s Tract 30 building has nearly twice the seating of its two Tulsa-area predecessors.

McNellie’s Group Operating Partner Matt Leland said the restaurant is only working with about 150 of those seats right now because the remaining 100 spots are outside. The rooftop patio is still under construction.

The delay in opening the patio will help the crew get used to the larger area, Leland said.

Three new restaurants opened in town last week, and this week the McNellie's group opened its first sushi concept on this side of the state.

Yokozuna has two locations in Tulsa and as of Monday has one here. That's when the sushi and noodle bowl bar opened in the Chisholm Creek development.

Named one of the 100 Hottest Restaurants in America for 2016 by OpenTable in March, Yokozuna offers a wide selection of sashimi, nigiri and sushi rolls, plus a strong roster of rice and noodle bowls, Asian-inspired small plates, steak, seafood and dessert. Yokozuna also includes full bar service with wine, specialty cocktails, sake and beers.

The new location seats more than 200 with a main dining room, bar, sushi bar, mezzanine, and ground floor patio. A private room accommodates up to 45. A rooftop deck is currently under construction and should be open come spring.

Long before MAPS 1 was a gleam in former Mayor Ron Norick's eye, a pair of up-and-coming restaurateurs built a small empire of independent restaurants along the North Western Avenue corridor.

More than three decades later, MAPS begat Bricktown, and from its success sprang property-grabs in Midtown, the Plaza District and Uptown 23rd, with plans for more nightlife brimming along the banks of the Oklahoma River, the historic Farmers Market and points west of downtown.

Meanwhile, the original Western corridor, between NW 36 and Wilshire Boulevard, has added Classen Curve and the Triangle at Classen Curve and is bound to extend to Memorial Road with the addition of the Chisholm Creek development and the impending Republic Gastropub, Torchy's Tacos, Fuzzy's Tacos, Yokozuna, Potbelly Sandwiches, and Sidecar Barley and Wine Bar, to name a few.

Fuzzy's Taco Shop in the Chisholm Creek Tract 30 is now open, the brand's fifth location in Oklahoma and 100th location nationwide.

The company is celebrating the opening of its 100th location with social media contests, a new purple souvenir cup and daily giveaways at the new Oklahoma City restaurant.

The restaurant's pre-opening benefit raised $2,300 for Oklahoma Cleats for Kids, a nonprofit that collects and distributes sports shoes, clothes and equipment to kids in need.

“Hitting the 100 mark is a major milestone, considering that it all humbly began in 2003 with the purchase of that first struggling Fuzzy's Taco Shop by TCU in Fort Worth,” Fuzzy's Executive Vice President Mel Knight said. “From that one restaurant, we've built a solid, stable company with 100 units in 11 states that is continuing to grow at an accelerated pace.”

The emergence of a bustling new entertainment district on Oklahoma City’s northside now features Fuzzy’s Taco Shop.  Monday, Fuzzy’s opened its fifth location in Oklahoma at Chisholm Creek.  The 190-acre mixed use development is located off of Pennsylvania Avenue, Western Avenue and Memorial Road, along the Kilpatrick Turnpike.  Chisholm Creek spokeswoman Whitney Rainbolt said within the next decade or so, Chisholm Creek will grow to become a billion dollar development of its own.  “We have a ton of national interest now, which is great. It used to be when you would call national tenants, they would hear Oklahoma City, and they wouldn’t respond. Now, they’re really excited about it,” she said.  Rainbolt said the first 300 of 1,500 planned apartment units will be open by December of next year.

The architectural rendering to the left shows outdoor eating spaces planned at Yokozuna, one of three restaurants in the development that plans to offer al fresco dining.

Fuzzy's Taco Shop will be the first tenant to open its doors in Chisholm Creek's Tract 30 development next week.

Construction is complete on the 80,000-square-foot, mixed-use development near Memorial Road at Western Avenue, and tenants are beginning to build out restaurant and office spaces in the building.

Washington, D.C.-based Love's Senior Director Leonard A. Lucas secured the financing through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Section 221(d)(4) loan insurance program. The 287-unit, four-story building will feature an urban-style wrap layout that encompasses a courtyard and pool area and includes a parking garage at each end.

Q: Any slow down in the Chisholm Creek development with all of the expected layoffs?

A: There is quite a bit of stuff going on there right now that is already under construction. There's the Tract 30 building and the iFly indoor skydiving facility that are both getting close to completion. Developer Gary Brooks is also building some high-end multifamily housing there. I don't think we have seen a slowdown yet, but it's possible if oil prices don't rebound. Read more at NewsOK.com
