TULSA, Okla. — The City of Broken Arrow held a joint press conference revealing details of a future mixed-use development near Aspen and the Creek Turnpike in south Broken Arrow.
Speakers included Broken Arrow Mayor Craig Thurmond, Vice Mayor Scott Eudey, BA City Councilors, BA Chamber of Commerce members, OakTrust representative Steve Easley, and Jeff Reasor.
The speakers spoke about the history of the economic development project and plans for the site, including a proposed Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District.
“The magnitude of this project will be as far-reaching for South BA as Bass Pro Shops was for north BA," shared Mayor Thurmond. "It will be another amazing catalyst for even further growth in this part of town.”
Details of the project include Reasor's Foods store, along with multiple commercial and retail businesses. The development will also feature a 168-unit apartment complex on the north end of the 40-acre project space.
Steven Jones has lived in South Broken Arrow since 2005. Jones said while there have been many new housing developments, there isn't much else.
“We need some shopping," he said. "Yes, the Warren Theater went in, that was great, but we all expected more to happen soon afterward, and it hasn’t. So now, knowing that there is going to be retail space with a Reasor’s store.”
The Reasor's store is expected to be completed in 12 months.
Update: This article has been updated with correct information about the apartment complex being on the 40-acre project space and is separate from the TIF District.
