Wymer Brownlee to Renovate and Relocate to Sixth and Seventh Floors, Dillingham Insurance to occupy the Main Level, Lower Level, and Mezzanine Levels.
Enid’s historic One Grand Center building, originally constructed in 1922, will undergo further updates in its Centennial Year as Wymer Brownlee Wealth Strategies and Dillingham Insurance partner to renovate, occupy and manage the building. Dillingham Insurance has purchased 50 percent of the property to serve as co-owner with Wymer Brownlee who will relocate to the sixth and seventh floors following renovations. Dillingham Insurance will move into the Main, Lower and Mezzanine Levels currently occupied by Wymer Brownlee by January 2023. All other building tenants will remain in their respective suites.
“One Grand Center is a beautiful and integral part of Enid’s downtown square, and we’re eager to maximize its potential as home to local businesses,” said Stephen O’Neill, Senior Wealth Advisor of Wymer Brownlee Wealth Strategies. “Renovating the sixth and seventh floors will continue the building’s modernization we began a decade ago and allow us to wisely use resources to continue serving local clients and the community in a meaningful way.”
Architects are developing plans for the sixth and seventh floors to ensure the layout meets business’ needs and that the design reflects the vibrancy of the Wymer Brownlee brand. After renovations are complete in early 2023, Dillingham Insurance will relocate its headquarters from its current location on West Willow Road to accommodate the firm’s growing needs.
“Our long-time current location at 2402 West Willow has served the needs of our customers and employees very well since 1976,” said Chad Dillingham, co-owner of Dillingham Insurance. “The new location will allow us to continue our growth, add additional employees and meet the needs of our valued clients in Enid, as well as throughout Oklahoma and the Central United States.”
Dillingham Insurance founder Tom G. Dillingham established the company’s first office in downtown Enid. “Our return to the downtown square will bring us full circle,” said Dillingham. “It’s a privilege to co-own and partner with Wymer Brownlee on such an elegant piece of Enid’s history.”
One Grand Center was originally constructed in 1922 as American National Bank. It has been home to First National Bank, Enid Realty Company and The First National Bank & Trust Company of Enid before Wymer Brownlee set up its corporate headquarters in the property in 2013. Plans for an open house celebration will be announced following completion of the remodel.
