Figured I'd start a new topic for this area.

Phase I is under construction and there's six additional phases planned/funded already and will be a total of $180-200 million. So over the next 2-3 years there should be several hundred new low income and mixed income units built. All designed in a more walkable design. This neighborhood is going to feel a lot different. Looks like even a new grocer is going to be built but not sure if it will be a local collaboration or if it will be a more national tenant like a Walmart Neighborhood Market, etc.

This is a great project, that area was in serious need of some TLC.  I'd like to see the concrete plant along the river eventually turned into a green space that ties into the festival park.  Gathering Place is awesome as a highly programmed park space but there really needs to be a larger open green space along the river in this area, something like Auditorium Shores in Austin.

Site Plan - this is a big project!  Hopefully they can tackle redeveloping the low-income housing south of 23rd St next that integrates that strip center at 23rd & Jackson converting it into a mixed-use building with sidewalk-facing retail and/or restaurants.

As work continues on the first phase of this project I noticed something interesting on the site plan.  It shows the Mid-Continent concrete plant as a developed parcel .  Makes me wonder if GKFF could be involved in acquiring that land for development and/or riverfront park space.

I believe Kaiser has maintained a purchase option on that site for a long time - like over a decade.  I donít have a link off the top of my head but some googling would probably confirm this. Itís just a matter of time till the concrete plant goes away. I think itís a possibility for a soccer stadium site but youíd have to ask the Craft family about that.

Interesting.  Selfishly I would like to see most of this site turned into a riverfront park space keeping the Mid-Con office building for a community center.  That space combined with River West would be great for big festivals like OktoberFest. If we're going to build a soccer stadium the City of Tulsa yard south of 23rd would be a better spot.

What an improvement.  Now let's make that riverfront park on the Mid-Con site happen!
