Office to vacate Capitol Building for Renovation Work
OKLAHOMA CITY – For the first time since moving into the State Capitol Building in 1917, the Office of the State Treasurer is leaving the building for an extended period of time to allow for renovation work to be completed, State Treasurer Randy McDaniel announced today.
Beginning Monday, July 1, the treasurer’s provisional office will be located in the Commerce Center, 9520 N. May Ave., in Oklahoma City. The offices will be housed on the lower level of the building.
Treasurer McDaniel said people who need to work with staff on unclaimed property claims or other issues will have open access to the offices.
“We focused on suitability, security and, convenience as key factors in choosing our location,” McDaniel said. “We are committed to a seamless transition.”
The Commerce Center is just north of Britton Road on May Avenue, a major Oklahoma City thoroughfare. Elevators to the lower level are located just inside the main entrance. Office phone numbers and email addresses are not changing, nor are the hours of operation – 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The treasurer’s office has been headquartered in the Capitol Building for 102 years, with the exception of one week in 2017 when the entire building was closed for electrical work. This move is expected to last about a year and is part of the comprehensive renovation of the historic seat of state government.
