Tulsa Auto Hotel


The Tulsa Auto Hotel, built in the late 1920's, was Tulsa's 2nd indoor parking lot. Demolition is now underway; the structure will be gone soon.

Great shot from the top! I can't believe they are tearing this down. The logic of these people just confounds me.

Keep up the great work!

It really pisses me off that they're tearing this garage down. For what: More surface parking? God knows that's the secret of every successful downtown. Plus this parking garage is better-looking than three-quarters of the buildings built today. Morons.

This site is awesome, though. Seriously.

Disgrace. These "developers" are attempting to erase our city's character and history. No one cares about new downtown development anyway (obviously). Protect and preserve these relics for everyone to enjoy, and stop busting them down.

so does anyone know what they are going to build here? SURELY not a simple surface lot. I know why they are tearing it down though, because big bloated SUVs can't fit in a garage designed for cars of the 20s.

I live in NYC now, but when I was a little kid growing up in Bartlesville, the "Tulsa Auto Hotel" was the epitome of big-city glamour. I'm very sad to see it go.
