OKLAHOMA CITY - The iconic Gold Dome at NW 23 and Classen Boulevard, narrowly saved from the wrecking ball a decade ago, is set for a foreclosure sale next month.
Bank 7 recently notified the dome's owner, Dr. Irene Lam, that the building will be sold to the highest and best bidder 10:30 a.m. Sept. 13.
When the Gold Dome was built in 1958, the two-story building with the familiar round anodized aluminum roof was touted by Citizens Bank as “the bank of tomorrow.”
By the late 1990s, however, the property had seen a series of bank tenants either fail or acquired by larger bank chains. It was then targeted for demolition by its prior owner Bank One, which was planning to sell the corner to Walgreens.
