So, every time Mr. Hawk looked out his window, he saw Meadow Gold flashing back at him.  I think of this story every time I drive by the Blue Bell plant in Broken Arrow and see the Braum's in front of it!   



That is probably the single biggest reason I don't buy Blue Bell products.  Management so inept and incompetent as to let something like that slip through does not need my business!   Well, that plus all the e coli stuff in past years....

Looks like more money is pouring in to 11th & Lewis from the Lobeck's. This is a good thing. Hoping that northwest corner can start turning dirt soon on SOMETHING. Last I heard it was going to be recommended as a new site for the Route 66 interactive museum. Anyone hearing more on this?

Pretty sure someone mentioned that the route 66 museum has been canceled.

That hawk dairy development looks fantastic. 100 units is a big boost to the area in addition to the other project. I had expected something much smaller. I guess developers see the gold rush finally. In ten years I expect there will be many of these types of developments between TU and downtown.

Itís a massive mixed-use development with apartments and retail

Cool story I was told at a charity event partially sponsored by the Borden's incarnation of the downtown dairy that is closing.  It was around the time the Meadow Gold neon sign was moved from the current rooftop of a Mother Road Market building to its current perch at 11th & Peoria.  The Borden guys told me the story.  Hawk was the locally owned dairy in the 40s, 50s, etc. - I believe they had another building on the east side of the lot of the existing building which was taken down and is now a parking lot.  Ann's Bakery had a Hawk's ice cream freezer in its lobby until it closed.  So, back to the story ----  back in the day, the battle was on between Meadow Gold and Hawk for market supremacy.  It was a blood sport.  Meadow Gold was part of a big national company.  The upstairs  window of Mr. Hawk's office looked out over the intersection of 11th & Lewis.  To get under his skin, the corporate office at Meadow Gold rented the roof top of the building across the street and installed that massive landmark neon sign/clock.  So, every time Mr. Hawk looked out his window, he saw Meadow Gold flashing back at him.  I think of this story every time I drive by the Blue Bell plant in Broken Arrow and see the Braum's in front of it!   

Our neighbor owned the building that the Meadow Gold sign was on originally. When Chris Nikel was on 11th and Lewis they wanted to expand their lot across the street so they bought the building, let the sign be moved, tore the cool old original brick building down and then proceeded to move to Broken Arrow. In memoriam, here's the sign on it's original building that so pissed off Mr. Hawk  Grin

Here's a rendering of the Hawk Dairy development - about 100 units.  They're starting soon.





Can't wait for this! Ironically the rendering shows no bike lanes just as the city has decided to remove four miles of bike lanes on Pine. Hmmmmmmm.

Pine doesn't make as much sense for bike lanes.  11th, on the other hand, does so I doubt they're going anywhere.  As it builds up they'll be used more.

I could be wrong... but seems like things are starting to pop off a bit for Tulsa. So many cool projects in the work. If we could just land a big non O&G company we'd really be running.

Oddly enough, the bike lanes are only being removed at the intersection. Doesn't make any sense, I saw a few drawings that still have them east and west of the Lewis intersection but that it becomes a sharrow at the intersection. Not very safe. I'm glad the city has added bike lanes but they really are failing in the public outreach part. Having a turn lane the entire way is just dumb too, it'd be better if that space was used for on street parking and then a dedicated bike lane on the other side of the parking spaces.

I was trying to figure that out from the rendering of the intersection.  Odd they didn't show the mixed-use project at the NW corner unless they are waiting to unveil that closer to when it is supposed to break ground later this year.  Wish they could bury the power lines but I know the costs to do that are really high

Those trees are really going to hide the little businesses on the corner pretty badly. Maybe instead of all the trees some nice Oklahoma wildflowers would work better (and look better).

The trees won't be that large for awhile, and the more trees the better in a pedestrian environment IMO
