A shopping and entertainment district popped up for a day on the corner of 36th Street North and North Peoria Saturday.

Tulsa’s Young Professionals hosted Street CReD to highlight business and development opportunities in the area.

Tracie Chandler is President of the North Star Neighborhood Association. She says that the event is on target, because it’s business development, not charitable institutions, that will fuel improvement in the area.

“We need money in this area,” she said. “We have money to spend, but, spend it on what?”

She hopes the Street CReD event will provide momentum for the area, similar to what’s happened in the Pearl District.

“I am praying, and hoping, and believing that within the next two years,” she said, “we will be breaking ground, and this will be a viable shopping area.”

“We want to attract people not just in our neighborhood to shop,” she explained, “but we want to have some unique things as well, that will pull people from other parts of Tulsa and in other cities.”

She says of the City’s PlaniTulsa small area plans, the North Star should come first for implementation.
