I like the Raw Space idea, but I don't like it for this site (and the raw space site has way too many buzzwords for me and possibly wasn't proofread)

Evans-Fintube Redevelopment Moving Forward

http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/evans-fintube-redevelopment-moving-forward



Quote
The Evans-Fintube industrial site north of downtown Tulsa could be under development within a year if all goes according to plan.

The City of Tulsa has a $600,000 federal grant to start environmental cleanup at the old foundry. Though the grant is less than half the estimated $2 million to completely remedy the problems, thereís a tentative agreement with a developer for a retail, office and residential project.

Economic Development Coordinator Clay Bird said the city could have sold the site awhile ago to another industrial user.

"That site is something that really has a much bigger, better use to spill over into the rest of the community to really help some revitalization efforts and stimulate other development," Bird said.

One hitch is the adjacent Watco rail yard, which would hamper the projectís residential component and possibly kill the deal.

"We've got a group that's working together with the railroad to look at all the different options that might be available and try to figure out a way to make that happen, which would be in everybody's best interest," Bird said.

Rail yard relocation was a proposed Vision renewal project, but it didnít make the final cut.

Tulsans could see results soon. Bird said if all the pieces fall into place, including moving the rail yard, work could begin in the next six months to a year.

Very cool.

The way I read the article is that Clay Bird tried to sell the site to an industrial user but some folks probably stopped him.

God bless them and I hope there's a real development proposal with some meat behind it.  But goddam that is a tough site.  It's isolated on all sides by impassable highways, railroad, and OSU-Tulsa parking lot.  I hope they're able to figure something out.

It kills me to say this but perhaps the classic mixed-use residential actually isn't the best use on that spot. 

But maybe it is and it'll be a catalyst for OSU-Tulsa to get its act together and quit land banking so many acres of prime land.  Or maybe the city/state/feds can do something to make I-244 more crossable.

Still a bummer they dismantled a perfectly good stadium on county property in anticipation of this, but I think it's a major win this is going on a brownfield within the city limits.

I'm curious what happens to the old stadium site now? 

And that aerial is outdated, no ONEOK Field, OETA, Hogan, The Edge, etc.  That will be a cool shot once the BMX site is redeveloped and Blue Dome fills in with Santa Fe Square and the Annex, plus the View, GreenArch 2 and Hartford Crossing.
