OKLAHOMA CITY -

Merchants along the 23rd Street Corridor in Oklahoma City say the area is primed to make a big comeback. 

The streets around the old Tower Theater building used to be one of Oklahoma City's main centers of commerce in the 1950's.  The area died out in the 1980's, but in recent years a growing number of restaurants and new businesses have been moving in. 

Jennifer Seal and her husband recently opened Grandad's Bar a few blocks west of the old Tower Theater. 

"There's a real nostalgia for the area," she said. "We're going to recapture some of that glory."

As for the Old Tower Theater building, Seal says the building's owners are actively trying to sell it to someone who's interested in participating in this Uptown 23rd Revitalization plan.
