new hope for ne okc
Northeast Oklahoma City is seeing a recent surge in development. Several new developments are planned, providing residents access to high-quality services and amenities.
A major project recently announced is the Northeast Shopping Center at NE 36th Street and Kelley Avenue. The 8.62-acre, 100,000-square-foot retail space is undergoing redevelopment plans to provide highly demanded retail services to the neighborhood.
The center is part of a tax increment financing district that includes both the 36th and Kelley and the NE 23rd Street and Martin Luther King Avenue commercial corridors. Through this path-paving development, discussions between the community, developers and council members have taken place in regard to potential retail, residential and architectural aspects to improve the area.
Community involvement has been a major factor in capturing the benefits of the development.
The King’s Crossing development, to be at 23rd Street and MLK, currently has a Buy For Less. Plans call for building an Uptown Market in its place, along with retail, offices and housing that will serve as a community hub.
