Worth looking at the planning commission meeting docs. Lots of stuff going on. https://www.jenks.com/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/_04202023-651?html=true

Reasor's is relocating the Jenks store to 121st & US 75 and looks to be the newer, bigger model store under the new ownership group in Texas.

Coal Creek Village: https://www.jenks.com/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Item/1445?fileID=2995

Will be a couple hundred thousand sq. ft. of big box crap. Will be interesting to see who they have on board - that intersection there has been prime for Tulsa Hills type stuff given it is easy access in from Sapulpa and from higher incomes to the east as well along 121st. My guess would be the sporting goods store is Academy, Homegoods or Hobby Lobby is probably the home store and a combo of TJMaxx, Ross, etc. as the other small boxes to fill out everything else. I don't think the large merchandise store is big enough for Target and likely too close to Tulsa Hills for another store here - I'd be surprised to see them build two non Super Targets in that side of Tulsa so close together. Wild card could be Home Depot, but not sure if there's enough population density there yet for them.

Regional land use change at 106th & Elm has people going absolutely nuts. RedDog Construction wants to build a large baseball complex with a small hotel and some retail. I think they approved the land use change which will set up a rezoning battle for the ages if it moves forward. The NIMBY's in Jenks have really started to put Tulsa to shame.

The Aquarium is planning a massive expansion of a mixed-use development on all their excess land. I'll have to try to dig up the renderings, looks like the City of Jenks has removed the document from online that had all that info or I just can't find it again. They're planning a boardwalk style development on the riverbank that will interact with the new lake. Plus a mixed-use development on the parking lots. They've already announced retailers that are moving there and not sure how that plays into the renderings they showed the city for the TIF boundaries to be adjusted. But Climb Tulsa and the entertainment complex out of Austin are two anchors. Looks like they want to do multifamily, parking structures, etc. to give that entire area more of a urban main street feel with the aquarium as the center point.

Great, good info.

I am not sure I will find what's going in next door in there. More of a curiosity - need coffee and/or a drink within walking distance.

Oh boy. This has big implications for Sapulpa. First of all, it means we are likely going to lose our Reasor's. Secondly, it means a lot more competition for our local restaurants, stores, and food chains. Sapulpa already has a big problem with our sales tax dollars being sucked into that corner of Glenpool as it currently stands, and now Jenks is going to take a piece of our pie as well. That's Sapulpa's fault for our incredibly poor land planning though, but at least we are getting our downtown off the ground.

I'm not excited by another asphalt suburban wasteland, but I guess it's inevitable considering the steady drumbeat of new single family neighborhoods out in this area. Eventually this will be copy pasted a few miles south of Glenpool too.

Here's what all I know about projects in Jenks. There are some $630 million in projects recently built or in the works. Another $100 million in projects that will be announced soon like this center on US-75. That amount includes the outlet mall, fyi.


The low water dam for the Arkansas now is funded after federal grants and funding from the Creek Nation:

On the campus of the Oklahoma Aquarium:
Climbing gym is planned:

High Five entertainment center with bowling, bars, laser tag


$10 million dollar food hall:


Main Steet downtown:
A $10 million expansion of some historical buildings for the headquarters of Telford Insurance:


A couple of blocks down the street on main four story mixed use building:


Across the street from the last project is a $70 million mixed use complex including 300 apartments and retail

Another large development is at Main and US-75. The Gateway Development where Kevin Stitt's Gateway company is based. A second office building is under construction, a third is planned. A hotel just opened. A 8 story hospital is planned and an indoor shooting complex is planned. I can't find renderings of these.

And the Ripken Baseball Experience on Elm that has people up in arms.
