Reed Architecture and Interiors has completed designs on a new football stadium for Tulsa’s Central High School.
This will provide the first true home field for this 114-year-old school. Central has been playing its “home” games at Tulsa’s Booker T. Washington High School.
“As a former athlete, I understand the value of having a place to call home,” said Reed Architecture architect Bryan Broaddrick. “I am excited to be able to help the students and the administration have a place where the community can come out and show their support for Central High School athletics.”
General contractor Crossland Construction intends to complete this 3101 W Edison St. project by September. The 4,900-square-foot design features large locker rooms that may subdivide into smaller units, a signature of Reed Architecture’s many stadium designs. Tulsa Public Schools boasts five stadiums and arenas completed by this Sapulpa, OK-based firm, with two others under construction.
One of those completions provided the first football stadium in the 91-year history of Will Rogers College High and Junior High School. That project opened Sept. 24, 2020, to joyous crowds.
“Central High School has a great history,” said Reed Architecture founder and principal David Reed. “We are excited to be a part of it with designing their first home stadium on their campus. I’m especially excited, as my mom and my mother-in-law both graduated from Central.”
