So is the outlet happening north of the creek by the aquarium or south? If it is south, what are they breaking ground on by the aquarium?

The mall is going in on the south side. The current construction on both sides of the highway is relocating the Elm/Peoria exit and adding service roads on each side of the highway. The service roads will provide access to the mall.

So the fresh dirt turning to the north of Aquarium Drive is for the Turnpike project?  I noticed that a week or two back and guessed it was going to be more apartments or retail.

If Simon were really planning on having that open fall of 2017, they should have broken ground already.  Has there been any more word out of Simon on an updated open date?

I don't think there's anyway for them to start construction until there are roads to the site. There's no access right now.

With all the "off-road" pick-up trucks in this part of the country, that should not be a problem.

Now some ground is really being broken by that WalMart Neighborhood Market.

Other than the BOK sign I still haven't seen anything mentioning what else is coming in.

Just utility work at this point.

From what I hear Simon won't call the city of Jenks back.

Oh man, that could be bad.

All that reworking of the roads for nothing.

It wasn't just for the mall, and the reworking was planned before Simon came along. Traffic on Elm at the Creek was terrible and they still want to develop the land to the south of The Creek.

Yeah, large shopping center construction is on hold across the country. 

Maybe retailers will opt instead for all that cheap unused existing space at 41st & Yale.  Big box apocalypse.

My son-in-law is in construction/development.  Due to a couple of his own projects heís pretty tight with one of the councilors who says Simon is in regular touch and it will be moving forward ďat some point".  Apparently, itís stalled at the moment while they are trying to figure out how much money or if Jenks will put any money toward moving a natural gas pipeline.  Funny, as this was a similar issue with a pipeline on Turkey Mountain.  Simonís M.O. is definitely to see how much they can stick it to communities to maximize their own profit er, um minimize how much they have to invest in infrastructure.

I have a friend on the planning commission that said he heard they went silent, but I also know there was a lot of disagreement over what Simon was doing in the last city election. There are some pissed off factions on the city council over all this.

There is a big pipeline on the site. I think it feeds the power plant.
