The city of Tulsa wants to sell two high-profile pieces of properties.

Mayor Dewey Bartlett is urging the City Council to approve the sale of the old Morton Health Center in North Tulsa and Evans-Fintube site near downtown.

Both are "brownfield" sites which means they had hazardous materials. The city has already cleaned up the Morton Health Center. It has $600,000 in grants that it plans to use to clean up the Evans-Fintube site.

The Morton Health Center at 605 East Pine Street, includes nearly four acres. It is zoned for residential, mixed use, light office and retail uses that complement the adjacent retail development or a restaurant.

Evans-Fintube, at 150 and 186 North Lansing Avenue, is a 22-acre site. The site location is near downtown, the railway spur and the OSU-Tulsa campus.

The Council is expected to discuss the sale plan this month.
