View Full Version : The Channels proposal

Has anyone read or seen about "The Channels" proposal just west of downtown Tulsa on the Arkansas River? Man this thing looks impressive. Basically they'd create a series of channels from downtown Tulsa to the River as well as making islands in the river to allow for high-rise condo developments and other skyscrapers. Pretty impressive. There was an article and rendering in the Journal Record a few days back, if anyone has access to the JR online please post!

Well it's dead in the fact that their proposal will required millions upon millions of city taxpayer money and people are protesting that on all fronts. They've got campaigns all over the city to keep that from passing, and I believe the city basically told them that they weren't going to even approach it. The citizens approach is, if you want to build it, you come up with the money for it.

It's a wasted effort to build those islands at that cost when you could build on the shore so much cheaper. So what if the building is in the middle of a river, it's not any more important, or any less important if it's on the shore.

I hope greedy developers don't ruin one of the best areas in the entire state. Retiring somewhere around 31st and Riverside is my dream. The area is fantastic just the way it is.

I haven't heard much news from this for a while now but the same developers of the Branson Landing are currently making plans for the

Tulsa Landings but that's all we get from that right now...
