Founders District is a historical business and residential community in northwest Oklahoma City. Originally platted in 1963 as United Founders Life Plaza, it is anchored by two architecturally significant buildings both erected in 1964, the 275 foot United Founders Life Tower and the mid-century modern Founders Bank building, locally famous for its soaring arches.
For many years, the area was considered an attractive and vibrant part of Oklahoma City. But over a period of ensuing years, the integrity of the area was compromised as properties were sold, business operators changed, and the City in general experienced the economic challenges of the mid-1980s.
However, recently, a vision among property owners has propelled a restoration--a revitalization and re-beautification--of the area. In addition to the major 2007 conversion of the historic and iconic Founders Tower in to over 60 luxury residences, since 2010 ten of the neighborhood's boulevard medians have been irrigated and landscaped, street lights have been added, trees have been planted, buildings have been purchased and renovated, and new businesses have been established.
This neighborhood association has been incorporated to administer and promote the neighborhood's revitalization process.
