I love Cirque Coffee.  Hopefully they have a place in whatever the future redevelopment ends up being on this site.

Only had Cirque once but only because I've been a Doubleshot fan for a while. This will be walking distance for me so I will surely be frequenting this new location. Good coffee is good coffee, and again, I hope they have some food items too.

The structure went up quick and looks pretty nice. Lots of paving so it's clearly targeting drive-thru traffic from the BA, but I hope they have some indoor space and maybe an outdoor sitting area. It would be a perfect walk for me and I would spend time there for sure.

It doesn't look like there is going to be any outdoor space - I drove past this the other day. It looks like they took a few shipping containers and cut out a few spaces for windows and plopped it down on the site. There appears to only be maybe 6-10 parking spaces in the back. It's mostly drive through lanes. So not sure how much space there will be on the inside for walk-ins. It's definitely not pedestrian friendly whatsoever. I just hope this is truly temporary, it would be a tremendous waste of that space long-term.

I agree^, seems like they wanted a quick drive through stand... seems like a giant slab of concrete when I saw it back a few days ago.

Better than an empty lot.  If the Bumgarners still own this parcel they will do this development right.  Itís in a great spot and definitely would be an appropriate location for high density office and/or residential.

My guess is that this is "temporary" but that there still are no plans for bigger development in the foreseeable future. My guess is that the contract provides some set number of years that this will operate, otherwise the investment wouldn't be worth it. I also think that the contract gives Cirque some consideration to be part of any new broader development on the site.

It looked quasi-open yesterday. Looks kind of lonely on that huge lot, but its paved and better than nothing I guess, for now.

Curious if this project is still on track at 13th & Peoria?  It would replace Golden Pawn with a restaurant and music venue.

I believe in the news article they did on this project a few months ago was that the owners are planning to start on the project in 2022.. I think the start date was a ways out since part of this will be an event center too, probably makes the financing a bit more difficult right now.

One can only hope the abandoned/burnt out Subway and the derelict Long John Silver's can be next. Incredible to me that they've been in this state for so long.

Interesting article in Tulsa World about a proposal for this site, back in 1985.

Maybe try again, but 6 stories instead of 12?

TULSA, Okla. ó First responders were called to the scene at 14th Street and Utica after a car crashed into the Cirque Coffee shop Wednesday morning.

According to a Cirque Coffee shop worker, an elderly person had a medical incident while traveling on the Broken Arrow Expressway. The driver went through the fence, crossed Utica, and then hit the building.

Saw that on newson6.com yesterday. Must have been a hell of a ride crossing that many lanes of traffic without hitting another vehicle or person.
