Mayor Dewey Bartlett is calling the finalized plans for a large retail development in southwest Tulsa, a major victory for the city of Tulsa.
The Walk at Tulsa Hills was announced late this afternoon at city hall.
It will be a brand new, $32.5 million development, expected to go in around the south 81st Street/Highway 75 corridor, adjacent to the existing Tulsa Hills shopping center.
From construction to completion, Bartlett says, the retail destination should create over 1,000 jobs.
The city is also looking forward to what they say will bring in around $1.2 million dollars in sales tax revenue.
City councilor Jeannie Cue expressed her excitement over the announcement today, saying, "We're going to have people from all over northeastern Oklahoma and that's the big thing, we're getting sales tax from all of the state, so I want to thank them for coming to Tulsa and we just can't wait to have that grand opening."
No word yet on exactly which retailers will be occupying that new space, as those plans have not been finalized.
Nashville-based Parkes Development Group LLC will be the developers in charge of the project.
