There is a construction fence and new gravel for a trailer on the lot on the west side of Greenwood, across the street from the old COT (future Snyder project) building. A friend said this is new office construction, but I think it could just be a staging area for Hartford Commons. Anyone know?

My guess is staging too.

This is a story from February...Did the TDA have its April meeting yet?

http://www.newson6.com/story/34618510/renovations-underway-inside-downtown-tulsas-hartford-building

Quote
TULSA, Oklahoma - Another piece of property in downtown Tulsa’s East Village is being renovated into apartments and retail space.
Plans to renovate the Hartford building started about a year and a half ago; but recently, there have been crews in and out of the building.

The neighborhood has built up around it - The Edge is finished, lots are filling up and Santa Fe Square is underway.

Neal Bhow and his son, Shawn, are now leading the project to bring the property back to life. They have also been involved in other downtown renovations, including the Vandever.

They aren't ready to reveal many details just yet, because it’s all still in the design phase. They do, however, say it will be mixed-use with around 60 apartments and space for restaurants and businesses.

Renovations have already begun inside, and Bhow said the project is smaller than the one originally announced, which included a full wraparound of the building and a parking garage.

Once construction begins, they said it should take about eight months to complete.

They plan to have more specific plans available to present to the Tulsa Development Authority at its meeting in April.

Interesting to see the fire station at 411 South Frankfort Avenue for sale for a mixed use redevelopment. That will be a fun one to watch with everything going on in that part of downtown.

Also, the update on the Hartford building. Yikes. They're already prepping some floors for paint and carpet but they masonry consultant has told them the brick on the outside is unsuitable and need to be replaced, and they're thinking about adding more windows to the building. That seems like they're doing it all out of order. Someone who knows more about building buildings correct me.

I really wish that Tulsa Opera had been able to get that building.

Or the University of Tulsa.  I think they were looking at it for their School of Community Medicine at one point (which is now in the old BCBS building).  Would have added something different to the area.

Nothing against the current developers, the proposed use will be good for the area too.

TU going where they did is good as south downtown needs more attention and that kind of place won't necessarily enhance the walkability a ton. The new TU location fits with the existing mold of south downtown buildings around there (medical/legal/corporate offices with not a lot of walkability or retail).

I think the new developer's plans fit the blue dome much better.

So I went down to this area this weekend, and drove around downtown. I think if we keep spending more and more money there, and continue focusing our attention on making that place better, it might not suck as much as it did this weekend.

What troll? I was down there in early afternoon and was not impressed. Barely any life, save the unfortunate homeless people.

 Go to south Tulsa, and even where I live, and people are everywhere.
