    Agree, it definitely stands out where it is. There are some others closer to downtown, the area around Denver & Riverside down to 21st is ripe for more mid or high-rise residential:

    Seems like Tulsa is slowly realizing that the river is an amazing asset to the city, maybe the biggest asset they have. The casino, Riverwalk Crossing slowly coming back to life, and The Gathering Place all seems to be giving that area by the river a lot of momentum.
    is that dam funded??

    Once that gets done Tulsa should consider a TOD district with a pier or two extending into the river. That would be sweet. If they could remove one of the legs of the IDL and partially cap another one between it and the river, they could really setup their downtown for successful interaction of the river.

    Partially funded through the Vision Tulsa tax renewal. The Creek Nation will also provide funding. Still a few years from actual construction.

    Tulsa has so much going for it. It really is a beautiful city. I really can’t understand why they can’t seem to turn the corner population wise.

    Lack of a dynamic economy that produces a lot of jobs and large university, still too reliant on oil & gas.

    Having state government in OKC seemed to be an excellent mitigator of the financial struggles that most of the country experienced in the late 2000s as well.

    I've wondered if Tulsa has been hurt by NW Arkansas exploding in population two hours down the road as well.

    I don’t think so. However, when I moved here 5 years ago I was blown away by the number of Arkansas alumni & fans in town. They are everywhere.

    Makes sense, Fayetteville is about the same distance from Tulsa as Norman. Those that don't stay in NWA typically migrate to DFW (similar to OU) with Tulsa and Little Rock picking up quite a few graduates each year.
