I love this little pocket of new urban development along 3rd between Kenosha and Lansing on the east side of downtown.  I've heard it called the 'Bend' before, because of the bend in 3rd, but I noticed on GoogleMaps the area shows up as Hodges Bend.  Anybody know the history behind the name?  There are several older buildings turned into lofts, a few small local businesses, and Tiny Bar (formerly 818).  Hopefully the organic growth of this neighborhood expands to the west closer to downtown.

New development slated to replace the two vacant buildings at the SE corner of 3rd & Kenosha (cool design!):

I can't answer your question, but the Urban Tulsa Weekly did a GREAT write up on the neighborhood not long ago:

i noticed that on google maps myself. I wonder who Hodges is.

What I love about the East End is that it's an area which has started the road to revitalization completely (to the best of my knowledge) without the help of any government planning or funding. It's just people with vision making the investment and doing the hard work themselves.

God Bless Google: http://www.tulsaokhistory.com/history/perryman_hodges.html

"There were three brothers David, Alvin and Elam Hodge, descendants of the Perrymans, were from another prominent Creek Indian family who were large landholders in the area when Tulsa was new and they also made notable contributions to the development of early Tulsa. At the time of allotments of the Indians' land, the Hodges and Perrymans acquired most of the land adjoining Tulsa on the South and east. But not all of the Indians of early Tulsa who were large landowners lived out their lives in wealth and comfort. "

Hodge Addition is the legal name of 1st to halfway between 4th St & 4th Pl, Kenosha to halfway between Norfolk and Owasso. The bend refers to 3rd Street's bend from the Tulsa's original townsite (laid out parallel to the Frisco tracks) and strict east-west orientation of Hodge Addition.

Dave Berray, who helped organize a neighborhood association for the area some years ago, advocated for the Hodge's Bend name to differentiate the area from the East End / East Village redevelopment.

Nice copy on Micah....more power to him. Glad he's got a lender.

*I believe this is the building to the right of the proposed lofts in the rendering above.  Not sure of the current status of the lofts...

Yeah it's on the blog.  Makes me wish I had more money and could do something similar.

If I had that amount of $, I would probably get a fresh paint job on my airplane and upgrade the instrument panel.  Then probably have a nice chunk left over too.
