21c Museum Hotel Oklahoma City has transformed the historic Fred Jones Manufacturing complex, containing more than 150,000 square feet, into a vibrant contemporary art museum, a 135-room boutique hotel, with restaurant, bar, meeting and event space, and office space for the ADG architectural firm. Originally a Ford assembly plant that sold and serviced Model Ts and Model As, the 4-story building is a cornerstone in Oklahoma City's historic character and bookends downtown development on the west. The iconic structure has become a vibrant gathering place for the community with the contemporary art and cultural center, open free to the public 24/7, and by attracting new visitors and business, the 21c Museum Hotel will serve as a catalyst for economic development in downtown Oklahoma City.
