Replaces 1995 terrorist bombed Murrah Federal Building
The devastation that was witnessed on April 19, 1995 will never leave the minds of Americans. 168 people perished in the aftermath of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. The General Services Administration immediately sought to replace the facility.
The building site is a transition zone between the Central Business District and the North Downtown neighborhood. Security design is paramount to the Federal employees and its neighbors. Building mass, glazing inside the courtyard, and bollards help to maintain a sense of security. This new facility is about the future, seeking to reunite the federal community and stand as a symbol of freedom.
