plans for the pearl

Better urban density. Rising property values. Walkable neighborhoods. Popular destinations.

For nearly 20 years, the Pearl District Association has united residents, business owners, and city government behind a series of plans that have turned this once neglected expanse east of downtown into an "overnight" success. The Pearl is up-and-coming by design — made with the people wanting to make their lives and livelihoods here.

Next are plans for growth made to last generations.
Tulsans know places like Brookside, Cherry Street, and Utica Square have been great for decades. What if you had that next to downtown, at the heart of Tulsa? Just consider the potential in these plans.

The Laura Dester Site offers 2.6 acres near the Pearl's most vibrant attractions and upcoming transit lines. The City of Tulsa has a Request For Proposals for new housing and mixed-use development, with submissions due October 13, 2017 at 3:00 P.M. In the video below, our own Dr. Leanne Benton will tell you more about this rare opportunity.

Tulsa's 6th Street Infill Plan gives guidelines to the unique opportunities of the Pearl for redeveloping land with existing buildings. Traditional principles of high-quality, lasting construction for building neighborhoods is their goal. If you're looking for your place in the vision, to have a piece of the Pearl, read this.

The Pearl Project Proposal envisions mixed-use development for living, working, shopping, and dining, built around landscaped ponds and a canal. Located by the rapid transit routes being built through the middle of the Pearl, it sees a neighborhood where people can live happily without a car, in Tulsa!
