First Friday Business Gatherings – North Tulsa

December 5, 2014

Announcement: Patronize Businesses in North Tulsa and Support Economic Growth!!!

The North Tulsa Economic Development Initiative, Inc. (NTEDi) in collaboration with State Representative Kevin Matthews and City Councilor Henderson are pleased to announce the December First Friday Business Gatherings on December 5, 2014; where we encourage all Tulsans to patronize established businesses in the north Tulsa community. We recognize that a challenge for most businesses is gaining visibility, so during the month of December we have committed to working with various businesses located in north Tulsa increase their visibility.

During the month of December 2014 we will be promoting retail, consignment shops and variety store types businesses. Supporting retail outlets in the north Tulsa benefits the community. The more Sales Tax that is generated in our community supports increased opportunities for economic development and growth.

Please join Dr. Lana Turner-Addison, elected officials and north Tulsa residents as we support investing in the North Tulsa community to build wealth.

Tulsa Community Invitation: Support and take advantage of valuable promotion and offers from featured businesses and other north Tulsa businesses.

Developers Hope To Revitalize Part of North Tulsa

A planned officer and apartment building would be a positive development for north Tulsa and it could take shape next year. The development would be near 36th Street North and Hartford.

There used to be business up there and more homes, but that was a long time ago.

Now a developer, with Tulsa Roots, wants to start turning that around.

The project, planned for 36th Street North, is the kind of development that would fit in any part of Tulsa, and that's on purpose.

Antoine Harris with Alfresco Community Development hopes to develop an office and apartment building in a part of town long overdue for revitalization.

“We have a pathway to success, we're not just jumping off, we have a pathway and we're taking it in stages,” he said.

Harris, James Cooper and Lana Turner-Addison all played a part in getting the project to this point.

They have a design and interest from banks on the financing and said they're confident two medical offices and a bank will lease space.

Above that would be 54 apartments for middle income tenants.

The design has covered outdoor space on the roof, room for gardens, covered parking and gated access.

"That's a major requirement. We have to get housing to attract the people we want in the corridor," Cooper said.

The land sits along the 36th Street North corridor, where the city has money for infrastructure if developers start building.

The nearby Wayman Tisdale Clinic, from OU, was the last major investment in the area, but the new building, on the site almost just across the street, would be another step towards rebuilding the economy of north Tulsa.

"We need business, retail development, and we need to find a way to generate sales tax in our community," Turner-Addison said.

The development team has the backing of City Councilor Jack Henderson, who wants to get the infrastructure money moving.

If all goes well, they all hope to be at a ground breaking next spring.

The next step on the project is to go before the city council to start on infrastructure money. That could happen as soon as next week.
