Group Creating Downtown Tulsa Multisport Project

B.A.M. (Boston Avenue Multisport) is an environmentally responsible project created by a group of local leaders in sustainable design and construction. Team B.A.M., the project creators, includes James Parker of TriArch Architecture, Kenton Grant of Kenton Grant Consulting, Terrell Hoagland of Jones Design Studio, and Scott Pardee of Pardee Construction.

The idea for the project began several years ago when the group realized that Tulsa would benefit from a premier quality multi-sport facility for year round use by local and regional community sports teams.

In 2013, Tulsa won the Golden Crater award from Streetsblog : a dubious distinction recognizing the massive gaps in downtown Tulsa’s urban fabric which are filled with surface parking lots.

The Golden Crater Award became the impetus for Tulsa’s Young Professionals to host a design competition to help imagine potential ways to restore vitality to the area. The multisport field was a natural fit, so Team designed a sustainable project composed of a multisport field and 60,000-square-foot structure concealing an integral parking structure, cascading into a park. Tenants will include retail, educational, restaurant, and office spaces. The net-positive project produces excess energy through solar panels and geothermal system to fuel future developments and neighboring buildings.

Team B.A.M. believes that low operating costs, revenue generation, and the number of users will spur development and have a strong economic impact on the area.
