Buyer plans to turn old News office into 10-suite hotel

Beverly Bryant - July 27, 2018 11:05 am

Entrepreneurs Kevin and Tracy Emmons closed Wednesday on the purchase of the old Ponca City News building at Third Street and Cleveland.
“First is clean up and repair of the roof,” Emmons said. “The ‘grand’ plan is a 10-suite hotel upstairs, a  restaraunt/bar/small stage in the center part of downstairs, and retail/office in each end.”
Emmons also purchased the old CR Anthony’s building last year and the Royalty Building at Fourth and Grand  early this year.

The arched doorway at the center of the old Ponca City News building on Third Street and Cleveland Avenue.

The center staircase.

Glass blocks on the west exterior wall give texture to the light inside the building.

Light and shadow on the west fire escape also add dimension to the former publishing company building.
