That is great news! I hope they wow the board with a great realistic plan. I've seen the potential in remodeling those. It was a shame someone previously wanted to just knock them down and build a huge apartment complex (why not do that in one of the empty lots nearby?).

Group M has done some great work like the Eleventh Street Lofts and Campbell Hotel.

Group M continues to help the Pearl District revitalization with the Meadow Gold Lofts

Also, they went with the larger expansion at the townhomes at Central Park:

There's also the "Black Pearl" which is right next to there on Peoria:

I saw an invite for a Grand Opening at the "Pearl Building" at 1209 E 3rd Street on Sunday 3/10 from 2-5pm. Looks really nice.

Also, now there are quite a few Breweries with taprooms open in the Pearl like Nothings Left, Willow Families, Dead Armadillo, Marshall (Great new tap room and huge patio about to open), Cabin Boys. Then there's the Distillery and Cidery right by Cabin Boys and Marshall. Heirloom is sort of in the same Whittier/Pearl area too.
American Solera is working on saving the old steel industrial building right at 6th and Utica.

It is neat to see the influx of various investments in the area. Hillcrest is doing its thing which we may not like for walkability, but has eliminated many eye sores and replaced them with a concentration of medical services.

The entire Pearl District, downtown and Cherry Street (north part) are included in the Opportunity Zones, so I expect investment to increase significantly compared to what it would've been otherwise. Savvy investors will buy up places, fix them up and hold on for 10 years to get all that rent and then tax-free gains!

There's a cajun restaurant being put in on 3rd near Trenton by the people who bought Church Studios and many more buildings around there (https://www.tulsaworld.com/business/swamp-house-restaurant-and-live-music-venue-planned-for-pearl/article_d215ef8d-fb33-5749-926e-b459df8ad7ac.html). They have already renovated several urban buildings right there and it is starting to look really good.

Someone bought the buildings around 3rd and Yorktown including the old Lock Supply building and fixed those up to look very nice.

There are just what I could compile based on memory and what others have posted places. Overall a lot going on in the district!

The Pearl is definitely one of the most rapidly-changing neighborhoods in the city.  It's great to see it finally realizing its potential as the missing link between connecting TU to downtown as well as the Peoria and Utica corridors along Route 66.
