TULSA, Okla.  — Many call it an eye sore, a boarded-up building damaged by a tornado almost two years ago. Tulsans may be wondering -- what's going on with the Remington Tower Building?

The 20-story office building took a direct hit from a F2 tornado that tore through midtown Tulsa almost two years ago.

The building sits right off Interstate 44 or Skelly Drive and has another office building just feet to the west.

Tenants next door say they've dodged debris which has blown from the Remington windows into their parking lot and along the service road, and they just want the owners to do something with building.

"I think it's disgusting,” Salon Divago owner Kevin Thompson said. “I mean every time we have clients come in it's a daily occurrence someone says, 'you know, what are they doing with the building?' I'm like, 'we don't know. It's just sitting there.'"

Helmer Group owns the Remington Tower.

They didn't respond to our requests for an interview or comments on what they have planned for the building.
