Former Journal Record Building getting new name, new face in Oklahoma City

Construction on the unfinished two-thirds of Oklahoma City’s Journal Record Building (621 N. Robinson Ave.) which will now be called the Heritage Building, will begin this summer reported Steve Lackmeyer in The Oklahoman on April 18, 2016.

The western third of the building is the home of the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum that honors the 168 people murdered in the bombing of the Alfred Murragh Federal Building on April 19, 1995.

Kari Watkins, executive director of the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, says, “We can’t be more excited to have the other half of the building occupied,” Watkins said. “It’s critical it gets filled, that life comes back. It’s part of us. We want to show resilience and renaissance.”
