Grand plans for Aubrey McClendon’s wine cellar didn’t quite work out as intended. The project, near the Chesapeake campus at NW 68th Street and Classen Boulevard, was started in 2006. It was abandoned sometime in 2008, complete with rusting steel beams and a partial foundation. Grand plans are once again underway, but rather than storing wine, it will store children. reports that the site will be converted to an 18,000-square-foot American Energy Partners day care center. What was once a sad, empty lot will soon be filled with children’s laughter.
