I've seen this on other city forums, and thought it would be fun to look at the Arts District from above... the area is definitely going to look different here in a few years! I wasn't able to fit in the Vast Bank headquarters or the planned Edge apartments... they're too the east of the picture.

This was my office view from 2008 to 2017. The baseball stadium had just broken ground and Guthrie Green was still an abandoned truck yard. The transformation was incredible to watch. I've since moved to the east side of the building overlooking the Blue Dome district. I can't want to watch Santa Fe Square go up, hopefully sometime rather soon.

This is awesome, thanks for doing it.

Looks like dirt is moving on WPX already? Or at least site prep/geo tech borings. Are they scheduled to do a formal groundbreaking?

The past five years have been all about the Brady/Arts District.  I think we’ll see continued growth there but that Blue Dome will be an even larger transformation over the next decade.

Curious at what point the property values will encourage companies like the dairy distribution and last few manufacturer reps and machining operations with warehouses to sell off and move elsewhere.

They might leave if they had to pay for on-street parking like the rest of us.

Incredible transformation. Do we know what the GKFF development is going to be yet? I've only heard speculation.

Any way you could expand the picture to show the east end around ONEOK Field?  I know that's considered Greenwood but there's a nice cluster of new and planned development over there.  Vast Bank, The View apartments and GreenArch II. 

There is also the planned developments at Main & Cameron including the TDA property (https://journalrecord.com/2019/09/24/developers-sought-for-1-acre-site-in-downtown-tulsa/) and the LA King property the Hanson Bros are planning to develop into a mixed-use project.

Whatever happened to this project at Main & Brady?  https://www.tulsaworld.com/news/local/historic-building-in-tulsa-arts-district-likely-will-face-demolition/article_69d063ce-2531-5154-9b2a-15e53aa921b7.html

^The Baird property got denied rezoning permission. They could still tear down the old station anytime they want. https://www.news9.com/story/38989726/caffey

Interesting, this would make for a really cool bar/restaurant space with an outdoor patio that kill it in this location

Agreed.  I would like to see a patio like the Mont in Norman.

Or it could subdivide into a really swanky T-Mobile and California Nails development.  Grin

That’s always been my dream for the Blue Dome building.  Add a bunch of trees/landscaping and wrought iron fence around it and it would be one of the best patios in town.  You could definitely do something similar here too.

I'll try expanding it here soon.. I can definitely take a picture of that side, not sure if in one continuous shot though!

Panorama?  It would be cool to see the same shot in 6 months and again in a year from now when Davenport Lofts is topped out, WPX is nearly topped out, Vast Bank is finished and Bob Dylan, GKFF and The View are well underway.  Hopefully some movement on the sites at Main & Cameron as well, which are some of the biggest holes left.  Those and the big surface lots on Archer between Boston and Detroit.
