TULSA, Oklahoma -

The City of Tulsa and the Tulsa Authority for Economic Opportunity are giving the community a chance to share their input about the redevelopment of a historic property near downtown.

The city is looking to create what it calls a "destination, mixed-use project" at the Evans-Fintube site.

The 11-acre property is just northeast of downtown the eastern edge of the Historic Greenwood District and sits next to the future USA BMX National Headquarters. It includes the Oklahoma Ironworks building, which is a 120,000 square foot former industrial facility on the National Register of Historic Places. 

The city said it hopes the project will enhance the history and cultural diversity of the area, strengthen community engagement, create economic initiatives and develop destination spaces for retail and entertainment to generate wealth for North Tulsa community members.

The city said it has four teams on its shortlist of potential developers that will be part of a three-month community engagement and proposal design process.

Thursday evening, Tulsans will have the opportunity to meet with those teams to learn more about their ideas and to give feedback. The meeting is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the 36th Street North Event Center located at 1125 East 36th Street North.

The city also has an option for those who would like to attend virtually. You can register for the virtual meeting by Clicking Here.
