Businesses flock to Broken Arrow in 2017

302 N. Main St. rendering

This has been a great year so far for economic development in the City of Broken Arrow. The City has successfully recruited numerous new businesses and commercial investments, including what may be considered the milestone for the Rose District: an $18 million, multi-use development on North Main (pictured). This approximately 150,000 square foot development will house 31,000 square feet of ground floor retail and office space with about 90 apartment units on the three upper floors.

Around the same time that development was announced, the City finalized plans with Alfa Laval to expand its facilities. Alfa Laval, which operates on South 9th Street, will expand its site twice by 2024, adding 68,500 square feet and 120 new jobs in Phase One. That phase begins in January. The second phase will add another 220,000 square feet and 147 new full time jobs for a total of over 260 new positions.

Indian Brewing Company

Another great development is the Indian Brewing Company, which is creating a brewery in the old icehouse at 333 W. Dallas St. Once finished, Indian Brewing Company will serve its own, locally-brewed creations, as well as light snacks and sandwiches.

Another Rose District Redevelopment

B.A. Vespers, LLC., which owns Main Street Square at Main and Dallas, also acquired the former Presbyterian Church at 121 W. College St. The plan is to turn the sanctuary into a full service restaurant. A building just south of the sanctuary will be redeveloped into 14,000 square feet of office space.

New Retail Developments

Several new retail establishments have opened or are planning to open soon in Broken Arrow. Dunkin Donuts will open its first area store at Aspen and Kenosha this fall. Around Kenosha and 9th Street, Jersey Mikes subs, Wingstop and Tropical Smoothie Cafe all opened up.

Phase 2 of the Shops at Broken Arrow (where Target and Dick’s Sporting Goods are located) is almost complete. This development between PetSmart and Dick’s includes an Ulta Beauty, Michaels, Dollar Tree and a Ross Dress for Less.

South Broken Arrow

In August, City staff recommended to the City Council that a study be conducted and to work with property owners to find new opportunities for redevelopment of the New Orleans and Elm area. The City has also developed the infrastructure to support The Shops at Aspen Creek, around the Warren Theatre. Read more at
