An unusual site for downtown Tulsa broke ground Thursday. Itâ€™s a new residential development called The Village at Central Park
Tulsa Mayor Susan Savage was on-hand as earth-work began on the east side of downtown Tulsa near Peoria Avenue. She said sheâ€™s excited about the renovation taking place in the dilapidated neighborhood.
â€œAs we fill in these areas that have deteriorated over the years we create opportunity and build neighborhoods,â€ said Savage.
The development only has ten homes planned to begin with, but will eventually erect more than 100 houses. The homes are valued between $130,000-$200,000.
City leaders hope the homes will sell quickly and spur further development in the run-down areas.
