Public Input Wanted For Tulsa Building Project Along Riverside Drive
TULSA, Oklahoma - George Kaiser Family Foundation is expected to break ground in 2014 on a building project on Tulsa' Riverside Drive.
A Gathering Place for Tulsa will be located between 26th and 29th and Riverside Drive, as well as the Sundance and Legacy apartment properties south of 31st and Riverside.
"Tulsans have embraced the recent trail improvements made in River Parks," said Jeff Stava, project manager for A Gathering Place for Tulsa. "This new space is a continuation of the foundation's commitment to enhance River Parks into a central gathering place for all of Tulsa to enjoy."
As part of the planning process, the foundation is conducting two public meetings on March 6th and 7th at the Tulsa Community College Center for Creativity at 910 South Boston. The sessions each evening will begin at 6.
Stava says the public meetings will everyone to tell us what they want to see in a new park.
Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, a Brooklyn, New York, based landscape architecture firm, has been selected to design the project.
"MVVA has experience designing amazing parks in numerous metropolitan areas around the country, and their dedication to creating landscapes that reflect the community in which they're based made them the clear choice for this project," Jeff Stava said.
The cost of the project is $100 to $150 million.
