Ah, this is it. Elliot Nelson is involved.  From what I gather.

It's a cute project and I'm glad they're doing something with those old buildings, but I can't imagine what businesses are possibly going to be able to survive there as that's been a poor location for retail since it was originally built waaaay back when. Maybe a location for realtors or something? Doubtful anything retail can last there. It would be cool making the old gas station look like it did in the 20s but be set up for EV chargers now.

^This project has already been completed. There are two McNellie's Group businesses that anchor it. I've been to Bishop Quigley a couple times now and it had a decent crowd both times. Seems to already be a favorite of the neighborhood. It's a bit more high class than Mercury Lounge, lol. There's still one space open for rent. Will be curious to see if they can fill it.

That Phoenix Cleaners development is surprising, but awesome. I agree that the retail tenant space will have trouble though, even with the added traffic to the area.

There is critical mass building in the 18th & Boston area, which is great to see since it's one of the few (only?) neighborhood commercial districts in Tulsa not connected to an arterial street.  It seems like a good time to revive the Knoll at Maple Ridge with a local brewery/outdoor seating along the MV trail

I would love to see that development by the running trail. It reminds me of Katy Trail Icehouse in uptown Dallas.

Yes!  Tulsa needs more trail-centric developments.  NWA has several of these too.

Totally agree about the 18th corridor. It's a really interesting little area. It makes you feel like you are in-the-know like a lot of cool areas in cities like St. Louis. 18th has so much potential running through old Maple Ridge through underdeveloped parts of Downtown/Uptown, clipping Riverview and ending at the Riverparks. Enhancing the trail connection in that area is a place the city should splash some money.

Maple Ridge Grocer is the other restaurant in that new development. It's really good.

A coworker of mine was talking about that place the other day.  He really likes it.  I'll have to check it out sometime.

The owners of Phoenix Cleaners own this property and are planning a mixed-use development there.

I really like the fact that they are keeping that Art Deco appearance of the building.

There used to be a few homes in the area between Lewis and Utica and from Monte Casino to 31st that were built in that style, but the last couple of times I've been back I don't even recognize that area.

Does anyone know when the City plans to replant the rose bushes in Woodward Park?  I went by there today and it was completely barren.  I know they a disease wiped them out a few years ago.  Sad to see it in this condition, it used to be beautiful with tons of roses and several fountains.

I've heard that they would have to replace all of the soil in the beds if they wanted to plant roses again.  I'm not sure if that is true or not, but that would be an expensive proposition.  I guess it was a major outbreak of Rose Rosette Disease.
