I know there is absolutely nothing sexy about levees, those earthen embankments with “toe drains” and “pump stations” in them. But I also know that the Tulsa area’s 21-mile levee system protects hundreds of thousands of lives and hundreds of millions of dollars of property, and that it’s broken.
Plans are in the works to turn the old Arby’s building on the corner of Fourth and Main streets into a mixed-use development that would include 58 apartments, records show.
The 70,000-square-foot structure is owned by World Media Enterprises, owner of the Tulsa World newspaper. The project would include 43 one-bedroom apartments and 15 two-bedroom apartments.
At least 20 percent of the apartments would be reserved for low-income residents.
