MAPS 3 will be the culmination of over a decade of development, implementation and construction. When we reach its end, the downtown landscape will take on a new life, along with new leases.

The TIF district and renewal plan are designed to benefit the NE 23 corridor between Interstate 235 and the Oklahoma River.
