Simon To Build Tulsa Premium Outlets
This much-anticipated project will be built along the south side of Creek Turnpike just west of the Arkansas River in Jenks’s River District. The first phase of the development will be approximately 325,000 square feet and feature 80 to 90 stores offering residents and tourists exceptional brands at extraordinary savings. Construction in Jenks is scheduled to start in spring 2016 with an opening in summer 2017.
“We are eager to serve the entire Tulsa metropolitan market from this location,” said Mark Silvestri, COO of Simon Premium Outlets. “We are really looking forward to bringing our vision of value shopping, which has been extremely popular throughout the world, to Tulsa.”
“Tulsa Premium Outlets will serve as a top-tier destination for visitors to Jenks and the greater Tulsa market,” said City of Jenks Mayor Kelly Dunkerley. “Public investment in infrastructure around the Arkansas River is returning dividends to the entire region in the form of private investment and job creation.”
Simon has long been active in Tulsa as it owns Woodland Hills Mall and has invested significant capital in that property, including the dramatic makeover of the food area renamed “Dining at the Hills,” making it Oklahoma’ssignature retail destination.
