In 1993, the city started implementing developmental projects for the betterment of the Metropolitan area in the old downtown. This was part of the development of the city’s central parts and included not only structural reforms but also libraries, basketball courts as well as a convention center. Many housing schemes have been successfully completed in the Oklahoma City which has been very beneficial for the construction and development firms. There was another project that was suggested by the name of the Core to Shore project for relocation of a part of the south of the city and replacement of the old area by a boulevard. The City’s bird eye view is rapidly changing and soon it will stand next to the more developed capital cities of the United States.
