BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - The Rose District continues to boom in Broken Arrow.
City leaders released a rendering of a mixed use building about to be built on the north end of the Rose District on Wednesday.
The four-story complex is expected to cost about $18 million.
The site for the development at 305 N. Main St. was formerly the First Assembly of God Church, then became First Baptist Church in 2002.
The City of Broken Arrow bought the property in February 2016 and had it demolished that summer.
The new building will have 31,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor and approximately 90 apartments on the three levels of above.
“This is a huge economic development endeavor for our Rose District and community,” said City Manager Michael Spurgeon.
“Once complete, this mixed-use project will bring additional density to the downtown area, which is important for increasing daytime traffic to sustain support of our Rose District businesses.
