The silence on this project continues to worry me.  Should I not be worried?

Last I heard, TDA was still dragging its feet. Someone light a fire under them!

I've heard that as well.  They are also causing problems for two other projects I know of.

Edited to add that they may not be the only thing holding up the projects but they're not helping.  This information is also second hand.

Woohoo!

Most notable quote of the story:
The project was first unveiled to the authority nearly a year ago.

Has anyone ever worked with the tda and said they encouraged, aided, or did aqnything to help development?  All I've ever heard is how they hinder, complicate, and discourage development.

Also, 1/3 of the world comments are clamoring for more surface parking,  where would one park during events to get a ticket?  Walkable and "parking parking parking" do not go together.  Dolts.

But I am nearing my stage of tulsa development where I really hope I don't get let down.

There must be an adequate amount of time to allow for graft.

I believe it is in the "Mission Statement, and the "Bylaws" of the TDA.

Or............ just possibly the the "true citizens" of Tulsa would benefit by taking the bite at the apple from the Development group. and yes... I do realize that is highly unlikely in the Town of Tulsa.

It even still says "underground parking".

Quote
The City of Tulsa has confirmed a mixed-use development will go forward at 3rd & S. Denver.  Much of the block east of the BOK Center is currently used for parking.

The Tulsa Development Authority voted in favor of a $1.5 million contract with developers, One Place LLC

The project currently includes urban residential apartments and town lofts, a 120-room Hilton branded hotel and restaurant, commercial office and/or retail space and underground parking.

Mayor Bartlett said in a news release Thursday morning, "This development is great news for the City of Tulsa, as it will help create jobs, bring in new sales tax revenues and provide housing that is needed downtown.

"With the BOK Center just steps away, the mixed-use development will be another selling point we can use to secure conventions, conferences and more entertainment opportunities within our city."

All from different architects/planners.  It will look nothing like the above.  Haven't heard anything about moving the PSO lines from beneath the development, without that agreement there will be no underground parking.  There is a 12' change in grade so it may be possible to have an above/below ground parking structure, but some mighty power lines dissect this thing, and it would take millions of dollars to move them. 

I'd like this thing to work, but none of the plans seem realistic yet.  There will be surface parking and it will need to be significant to support the offering.  With the struggle of the current restaurant and commercial offerings surrounding the BOK, I would assume the investors may be getting cold feet.

So are the power lines currently underground at least when I look at google maps (certainly out of date) it looks like there is only lines above for lighting.

Directly below, running N-S down the existing alley.  Large PSO feeder line.  I understand that it's the backbone of the DT grid.
