Company unveils new details for outlet mall near Turkey Mountain

The Tulsa Premium Outlets project is one of three upscale outlet malls that have been announced recently, although all would be competing for some of the same retailers to commit to a property before ground is broken, city officials said.

Another mall inside Tulsa’s city limits is planned for construction at 129th East Avenue and Interstate 44 and is being developed by Horizon Group Properties.

The Cherokee Nation is also planning a development near the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Catoosa.

City officials have said tax increment finance districts are being considered to fund infrastructure needs for the two projects in Tulsa.

Don’t expect three new outlet malls, Tulsa officials say

“There is not going to be three outlet malls; there is only going to be one,” City Councilor Skip Steele said last week.

The question for the city, Bird said, is to determine whether it is prudent to provide financial incentives to the developers and, if so, what kind.

Typically, those incentives come in the form of sales-tax reimbursements, Tax Increment Finance Districts or a similar funding mechanism, for the construction of public infrastructure.

“So it really is a race against time and where it is going to go,” Steele said. “It is really important that we get it (the outlet mall) in Tulsa first, because it is $4 million in sales tax on an annual basis that goes into the city’s general fund.”

Simon Property Group announced last month it would build an upscale outlet mall in west Tulsa. Simon is also owner of Woodland Hills Mall in Tulsa.

About 70,000 cars per day pass by Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa, which boasts a 90 percent occupancy rate for overnight guests.

The Hard Rock announcement coincides with news of other major retail centers under development or construction in northeast Oklahoma and the Tulsa area.
