TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa broke ground on another option for downtown living Tuesday.

Vacant property behind the Double Tree Hotel on West 11th Street will be the future home of the Riverbend Gardens Townhomes.

Riverbend Gardens will offer 40, 2-bedroom rental townhomes.

"If you're going to revive your downtown core area, it is significant that you have affordable living units for people who want to live downtown," said Julius Pegues, Tulsa Development Authority.

The city released renderings of what Riverbend Gardens will look like once they're finished. That should be sometime next May or June.
