OKLAHOMA CITY-Construction was launched yesterday on the Integris Health Thunder Development Center, the 55,000-square-foot practice facility being constructed for the city’s National Basketball Association team, the Thunder. OKC Biz reports that the $10 million center will be completed prior to the 2010-2011 season.

In addition to a practice basketball court, OKC Biz says the facility at 9600 N. Oklahoma Ave. will offer a 27-seat team classroom for the team, as well as a state-of-the-art sports medicine and hydrotherapy area. Atlas General Contractors is the contractor, while CH Guernsey is the architect of record.

Both OKC Biz and a press release on the Oklahoma City Thunder’s website say funding for the project, as well as renovations to the Ford Center where the Thunder plays comes from a one-cent sales tax approved by Oklahoma City voters on March 4, 2008. The 15-month tax took effect Jan. 1 and is scheduled to expire at the end of March, 2010. The release points out that as part of the lease agreement, the Thunder will make an annual $100,000 rent payment to the City of Oklahoma City.
