City Central

May 10th Grand Opening Slide Show
Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Held for the Newly Renovated City Central Building

In 2016, PCDA was donated a five story building in the heart of downtown Ponca City. With the very real threat of this being being mothballed and closed by non-resident landlords, PCDA gladly accepted the property along with $200,000 and submitted an application to the federal Economic Development Administration (EDA) for a $1.275 million matching grant to renovate the basement and first floor into a large indoor/outdoor conference center, The Summit and shared workspace known as The Link. The EDA grant was accepted by PCDA in August of 2017 and renovations have commenced.

The Summit Conference Space holds 300+ people seated at tables (600 in chairs) with two breakout areas. Conferences needing more than two breakout areas will have access to the upper floors for use as well. The Summit will have sliding glass walls which open out to the landscaped, outdoor event venue. This allows conferences, meetings and family celebrations to transition easily from formal event to afterparty with a simple opening of the doors. For more information or to book The Summit, please call Lori Henderson or email at lhenderson@goponca.com.

The Link, a shared workspace/collaboration center, has eight desks, 10 laptop set ups (bar style) and six office areas as well as a small conference room, coffee shop and a retail pop-up area for retailers to test product marketing, placement and development. High speed Wi-fi will be part of the monthly membership and desk/office leases, as well as access to the conference room, collaboration areas and programs which will be held in this space. Currently, the building is hosting the Inventors-Entrepreneurs Network (IENetwork) which meets the second Thursday May-July-Oct-January at 5:30 in the building.

City Central, as part of the renovations, has received updated ADA compliant restrooms, new LED lighting fixtures and a new roof.
