We thought it would be a great way to give back to the community and help the inner city flourish; instead of just being another company that built on cheaper land towards the outskirts of the city.

HomeWetBar announced plans today which outline the purchase and full renovation of property located in the original industrial area of Oklahoma City, OK.
Originally built in 1952, and located just North of the state capital, the building located at 425 E. Hill St. was originally built as part of Oklahoma City's first industrial district. “We are really excited to be starting renovations, and for what this means for our company, community, and for what it will do to improve the area around it. We were looking for a larger warehouse to expand into when we came across this building in the old industrial area of Oklahoma City. Right away I feel in love with the idea of restoring this building to it's former glory, and improving this city we love. We thought it would be a great way to give back to the community and help the inner city flourish; instead of just being another company that built on cheaper land towards the outskirts of the city.” stated Keith Winter CEO of HomeWetBar.com and GreatGiftsforMen.com.
The plan includes extensive renovations to the building both inside and out. It includes upgrading the electrical, creating a new 5,000 sq. ft. office space inside the old building, repairing and upgrading the warehouse portion, resurfacing the parking lot, and repairs to the structure of the building. “It will drastically improve the existing structure while preserving the character and historical feel of the building. We look forward to enhancing the community and our city with these renovations,” stated Winter. HomeWetBar's current facilities located off Will Rogers Pkwy. are approximately 7,500 sq. ft. The new warehouse and office facilities off Hill St. will be around 32,000 sq. ft. when the renovations are completed later this summer.
