BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - City leaders in Broken Arrow broke ground on a new mixed-use development Friday morning.
The new $18 million project is near Main and Detroit in the Rose District of Broken Arrow.
Officials said it will be a four-story building with 31,000 square feet of commercial space for shops and restaurants. In addition, more than 90 apartments will be put in place on the top three floors.
The city first announced the project in 2017. The property was a church before it was shuttered in 2006 and had been empty ever since.
The city demolished the old building in 2016.
Nearby businesses say new developments in the Rose District such as this have brought more people into their shops.
