TULSA -- Downtown Tulsa is one step closer to having a grocery store.

A proposal has been in the works to build a Reasor's in the parking lot east of the Tulsa Performing Arts Center on 2nd Street and Cincinnati. 

The PAC Trust said they are moving full speed ahead on the development. 

Thursday, they voted and passed several terms of the agreement.

Ken Busby with the PAC Trust said they reached a deal with the developer. 

Members of the trust said it has taken a long time to get to this point, but they have been looking at this project from every angle to determine what is best for the city. 

The development will have retail space, a grocery store, housing and a parking garage. 

"Today's vote was very positive," Busby said. "People are feeling good about the development. Flaherty and Collins, in discussions with them, have been very positive about the direction we are headed. Our biggest regret is taking so long to get her, but we have done our due diligence." 

The PAC hopes to have the contract finalized by the end of September.

There is still one final vote before the green light is given on the project.If that vote passes, the city will start getting involved with permits.

Busby said construction could start as soon as the beginning of 2018.
