Barnes and Noble, Whole Foods coming to 81st & Lewis; Jarrett Farm for sale

| | Comments (3) | TrackBacks (0)

Tulsa Realtor Darryl Baskin reported back on November 4 that the owner of Cityplex Towers (née Oral Roberts' City of Faith) plans to develop the outparcels of the property nearest the 81st and Lewis intersection as a retail complex anchored by Whole Foods Market and Barnes and Noble Bookstore. This will be the first Whole Foods Market in the Tulsa area and the third B&N. I seem to recall that a B&N was mentioned as a possibility for the second phase of Jenks' Riverwalk Crossing.

If this comes to pass, it would seem to preclude a major chain bookseller for Riverwalk Crossing, with a B&N just two miles away and a Borders four miles away.

That item came from Neil Dailey's Tulsa Commercial Real Estate News blog. Dailey heads up commercial real estate for Baskin's team. I'll be keeping an eye on his blog for interesting tidbits. Some of the most important local news is found in real estate transactions, not down at City Hall or the County Courthouse.

While poking around darrylbaskin.com, I came across a listing for Jarrett Farm, a luxury bed and breakfast resort halfway between Tulsa and Bartlesville. The asking price for the 120-acre Jarrett Farm property is $2.95 million. The listing describes it as a "turnkey business," so I'd guess it's still in operation while a buyer is sought.

The Whole Foods thing makes me wonder about the very successful Wild Oats Market at 41st and Peoria. Since Whole Foods is buying out Wild Oats after saying they would not move into an area where they would not be able to sell wine in their stores then this may mean that they think the wine retailing may just come to pass, and, about time; folks complain about backwardness in Tulsa, and this is a prime example of it but one that won't be heard in the World.

Wild Oats is changing (slowly) over to the Whole Foods logo and style. I have never been to an actual Whole Foods store, but I have noted many changes at Wild Oats. I am THRILLED that they will be coming closer to my end of town, even though it seems like it would be less expensive and more beneficial to move into an existing facility, like the recently vacated Walmart store at 91st & Memorial to capitalize on that south bound Bixby area traffic. But what do I know? Maybe someone could convince Trader Joe's to go in there and add a little price war for the consumers' benefit!

Be sure to reserve 10% of the parking for bikes. There's no such thing as "free" parking.
