I've been meaning to post these pictures for a long time. . . Like two months.  These were taken on the morning of Labor Day.

Newly renovated building at 3rd and Kenosha.  Not sure if there is a tenant lined out for this or not.


Former KOTV building.


Back side of the new Hotel Indigo.


Here are several of the Vast Bank building.










The Flats on Archer.




Holiday Inn Express.


And here's a few of the Cosmopolitan Apartments at Denver and Riverside.

Thanks for posting all the updates!

The pics of Amelia's with the Archer Flats, the Riverside Apartment pics, and shots of Vast Bank behind other buildings really make those areas feel like a whole other city. Really nice to have all that near downtown. The density is noticeably different in the area now, even if it's still not anywhere close to TheArtist's standards (and will most likely never be there sadly because we still live in Suburbia country).

It's great to see that investment in downtown is rivaling the suburban sprawl. It is more than just viable, but profitable and hopefully the future. We need more people going carless or less carful at least! The Arts District is just the beginning of what it will be and what it can be when enclosed with residential from all areas around it (empty lots by OSU/Owen Park, etc)

Not the biggest fan of the exterior materials and colors of the Indigo.  Looking forward to the day it's surrounded by Santa Fe Square. 

LOVE the landscaping by Amelia's and the pop of color from Archer Lofts.

The facade is pretty decent and unique with some Art Deco elements, but it looks very much like a generic chain hotel on a couple sides. I'm guessing that was in anticipation of being hidden once the rest of the buildings are put up. The parts facing west and north are more interesting, with balconies and more variations.

I saw the renovated building at 3rd & Kenosha is getting a new restaurant called The Goat.  I don’t know anymore than that.

Work on the city’s long-promised BMX facility will begin this week with a ground-breaking ceremony scheduled for Friday at the former Evans-Fintube property north of downtown.

The project is expected to be completed in 2021.

“I am definitely excited about this project moving forward,” said City Councilor Vanessa Hall-Harper. “I am more excited about the follow-up development that is coming to this space in the historic Greenwood boundaries and what ultimately can result from that.”


The BMX arena, headquarters and hall of fame will be constructed on the north end of the 22-acre property. It is expected to include a 2,000-seat outdoor arena, with a roof; an adjacent USA BMX headquarters and hall of fame; and an approximately 300-space parking lot.

Here is a development summary that was presented to the TDA board:

http://www.tulsadevelopmentauthority.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Presentation-Mayors-Office-of-Economic-Development-Kian-Kamas.pdf

Lots of great stuff going on around downtown. Of particular interest for me was the notes on slide three. Under Downtown development projects, it notes that there are several potential developments coming with announcements possible in coming weeks.

We will be back in Tulsa the week of Thanksgiving.  There's always more to see and do than we have time for, what are the "must" new places to see or eat since we were last there in April?

Some of the newer places we like are the SwampHouse on 3rd Street right across from Leon's Church Studio.  Cajun food, good music, run by Tom Dittus and his wife.  The new Deco Lounge on Boston (where Decopolis used to be) is nice, and the Chamber Restaurant on 5th (in the refurbished Tulsa Club Hotel).  There's the new Foolish Things High Dive (Korean Street Food) on Trenton to the east of the Church Studio, but we haven't tried that yet.

I hope the Jows are doing some sort of riff on their garlic fried chicken recipe from Golden Palace at the Deco Lounge.  That was always a must-do lunch when we'd come back to Tulsa.  I'm also a long-time admirer of Tom Dittus' restaurants.  Sounds like two solid recommendations.

How's tenancy at the Box Yard these days?  We noticed a few less tenants when we were last in Tulsa than they had right before we moved away in early '17.

The Boxyard has added a couple new stores replacing some of the ones that have either grown larger or reverted back to online. 918Skate is probably the newest tenant that's finding its footing. Open Container and Riley's Wine and Spirits both have increased their footprint, adding a restaurant to the former bar-only concept, and an event space to the liquor store option.

Sabores is still fairly new in the game, but great food options.
