BROKEN ARROW -- Wednesday, Broken Arrow officials celebrated the completion of its Main Street renovation with the announcement of two new businesses.
The Rose District , Broken Arrow’s downtown corridor, was rezoned last year for arts and entertainment.
The streetscaping and landscaping project took about $4 million. Construction kicked off in June and was completed at the end of 2013.
“Crews worked through what can only be described as ‘Oklahoma’ weather, weekends and holidays to complete the project with as minimal impact to downtown businesses as possible,” said Broken Arrow Mayor Craig Thurmond. “I could not be more proud of the efforts put forth by city staff and want to personally thank them for a job done exceedingly well. There is no denying downtown looks wonderful and will now be a gem among others in Broken Arrow.”
Wednesday, the city, along with local businesses and residents gathered for the announcement of The Rose District’s newest additions -- Pinot’s Palette and the Rooftop
The Rooftop, a 3,500 square-foot open concept bar will be located above In the Raw, with indoor and outdoor seating.
The Broken Arrow location will be the third Pinot’s Palette franchise in the Tulsa area. It will occupy a 3,000 square-foot studio in the same building as In the Raw and the Rooftop.
Officials say both businesses are set to be open in June.
