Restoring the Glory to Iconic Founders Tower as Oklahoma City's Historical Building Takes on New Life - 100% Occupancy Rate and a New Event Center

Founders Tower Also Forms New Partnership with Deep Fork Restaurant Group Which Will Provide Full Service Catering to New Event Center

Oklahoma City, Okla. - The Founders Tower, located at 5900 Mosteller Drive in Oklahoma City, is pleased to announce new changes for both its residential and commercial space. The iconic building, a local landmark since 1963, is turning its famous "rotating restaurant" into an event space called The Chandelle Room atop Founders Tower. They have also formed a new partnership with the Deep Fork Group to be the full service caterer for the center, which will occupy the top floor of Founders Tower.

The Chandelle Room is the original name of the top floor of Founders Tower. A chandelle is an airplane maneuver that combines an upward climb with a spiral - or a 180 degree - turn.

Frankfurt-Short-Bruza Associates is consulting on the interior design for the renovation. The Chandelle Room, with its 360 degree view and elegant interior, will be the premier location for parties, meetings, weddings, receptions and fundraisers. A grand opening of The Chandelle Room at Founders Tower is scheduled for December 2011.

Deep Fork Group will handle all food and beverage service for all events on the 20th floor event center. The Deep Fork Group is well known in Oklahoma City for having a variety of restaurants in the area including popular favorites Deep Fork Grill, Café Nova, The Wedge Pizzeria, Chica's Mexican Café, Homerun Sliders and The Mantel Wine Bar and Bistro. The Deep Fork Restaurant Group has been in business for 20 years and brings a wealth of experience in the catering business to the new and improved Chandelle Room at Founders Tower.

The event space is about 9,000 sq. ft. and has a variety of rooms available for parties of all sizes. There will be two bars, a large dance floor, cocktail lounge, and a private dining space for more intimate parties. The revolving area of the space makes a full 360 degree rotation every hour. The Chandelle Room at Founders Tower will be open to the public four nights a week for food and drinks.

Since the renovation of the building began in early 2007, the building's ownership is proud to report that under the Petrous Group Management the leasing of the building is at 100 percent occupancy for the residential living and 98 percent occupancy for the commercial space.

The Petrous Group is responsible for selling and leasing condominiums in Founders Tower as well as leasing commercial space to qualified tenants. The Petrous Group is leasing office space on the first floor with most of the space rented and limited availability remaining. For more information, please visit
