The demographics are probably the best they can be for upscale retail literally being in the center of some of the most expensive neighborhoods in Tulsa.  It's been interesting to see the office development that has been attracted to the area with Utica Plaza, Utica Place and the new Bumgarner project at 21st & Xanthus.  Outside of downtown and the 61st & Yale area there really isn't another cluster like it with probably close to 1 million SF of office in that square mile.  If you could get a hotel built (long been rumored for the former H&P site at 21st & Utica) and integrate condos and apartments above retail it could really be a vibrant area.  You already have a huge employer (St John) across the street that isn't going anywhere.

I was mainly theorizing that it is a younger affluent shopping mentality, not that any money had left the area. It will always be upscale shopping just different stores. I don't think the St. Francis area will ever be like Utica Square area, I could be wrong.

I also agree that it would be great if Utica Square could reshape itself but not lose the character that it has, and a hotel in the old H&P location would be good, give that corner some life, besides the upper floors would have some good views.
