The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation announced a new development on Friday morning. Shops at Mother Road Market, located on the southwest corner of 11th & Lewis, will feature five retail spaces that will be filled by a mix of new and established local retail concepts. Shops at Mother Road Market will be the perfect complement to Tulsa’s first food hall, offering customers an extended shopping experience to enjoy in addition to the current retail options inside Mother Road Market including The Nest, Mythic Press, Decopolis and the Kitchen 66 General Store. Shop spaces available will range from approximately 575 square feet to 1500 square feet. Shops at Mother Road Market will also add approximately 32 parking spaces, as well as an additional outdoor patio on the south side of the development. The new development is estimated to open in Spring 2020.
“Through review platforms, social media feedback and personal feedback our team has received, we have recognized that our customer base is interested in additional retail in this area,” said LTFF CEO and President Elizabeth Frame Ellison. “We believe that Shops at Mother Road Market will give the customers what they want, while also continuing to inspire a culture of entrepreneurship along Route 66.”
While two of the five spaces for lease will be held for established retail businesses that have been in operation for more than three years, the remaining three spaces will be filled with new startup ventures. The leasing process for the three spaces set for startup retailers will follow a competition format that includes filling out an application, demonstrating proof of concept with a pop-up opportunity at The Vault inside Mother Road Market, taking advantage of partner organization programming, and more.
