Hey, that's a solid B+ in staying close to the original concept.  That's almost remarkable.   Great use of that space anyway...

I still can't help but think the first one was better.

Newest rendering, definitely preferred the old one.  I heard the pool is on the roof overlooking the river but can't confirm.

Would love to see similar-type projects replace the old apartments along Riverside to the north.  



I like the new one more with the slanted tops that look modern and give it more of a presence, but I wish there was a bit more variation. The corner part looks larger too and looks like there's an additional floor. The old rendering is nice and seemed to have more variation in the elevation fronting Riverside but I think overall it's an improvement.

No way.  Most of the apartments to the north are old classic structures.  Update or renovations?  Maybe.  But no way should we tear them down to add new trendy mega apartment structures.  This development works because what was there was nothing special (in my opinion) and burned down, not worth rebuilding.  The apartments to the north I think are some of the most underrated jewels our city has to offer.

I think SXSW is referring to these: https://www.google.com/maps/@36.13758,-95.9939995,3a,75y,358.1h,85.42t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sPgcxa0u2Mhi9JlCtnNYkUA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
and these: https://www.google.com/maps/@36.1387095,-95.9952163,3a,75y,34.04h,80.58t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sJd3izn-Hfg3Eje_FiIDHwA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Those are both eye sores and from eras of bad/mediocre architecture. Not much to save if it came down to it.


I don't think anyone on this board would want to destroy the old Tudor-style apartments that are a bit further down if that's what you were referring to.

Okay on the first link.  The second link I think has some value and would like to see them fixed up if anything.  Personal taste, I suppose.

Yeah those are the ones I was talking about, basically everything along Riverside to about 15th.  Obviously not Sophian Plaza.

The 2nd ones could potentially look good if someone did a complete overhaul, painting them entirely and changing up everything but that hasn't happened in their history and probably won't happen. They are only 2 stories and have a bad angle to the river. I think that stretch would be better as something else altogether: nice townhomes/condos or a 3/4 story apartment complex.

Yes, hopefully this project at the corner is the start of a renewal along Riverside from 15th to 21st.  They would be some of the more desirable apartments in town: new, easy access to downtown and the rest of midtown and next to the river trails.  The proximity to OSU HSC also creates a demand for more apartments in the area.

Some landscape renderings I found: https://www.lordaecksargent.com/design/landscape-architecture/living-and-amenity-areas/cosmopolitan-tulsa

Looks like they are wrapping the big concrete parking garage.  This passageway is a cool feature, I assume it goes up to the pool area?

Based on what used to be on that corner and my memories of that area, I think that would be an amazing fit for the scenery.

Probably can't afford it, but I could totally see living there.

Honestly while downtown would be fun if I was looking for a nice urban apartment in Tulsa I would prefer to be in Riverview as it's more residential and next to the river trails, yet also in between downtown and midtown (Cherry St/Brookside/Utica Square).  If there could be more neighborhood retail/restaurants somehow integrated (along 15th?), or expand the SoBo 18th & Boston area, it would be even more desirable.
