The Steele, Court, and Braniff buildings in downtown Tulsa are part of the definitive southern border of Tulsa’s historical central business district. The identifiable historic facades of the buildings have remained despite continued redevelopment on Main Street over the decades. Constructed in 1919, 1920, and 1925, the three buildings are good examples of the Plains Commercial architecture characteristic of Oklahoma. All are considered imperiled by years of neglect, lack of protection under the local historic preservation ordinance and no plans for their protection if sold for redevelopment.
