Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation Announces Shops at Mother Road Market Development

The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation announced a new development. Shops at Mother Road Market, located on the southwest corner of 11th Street and Lewis Avenue, 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 offer customers an extended shopping experience 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 1,500 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 of 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.
While two of the five spaces for lease will be held for established retail businesses, the remaining three spaces will be filled with startup ventures.
The leasing process for those three spaces 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.
“The Shops leasing competition gives us the opportunity to utilize LTFF’s pipeline of entrepreneurial programming and tie those resources together to launch startup retailers,” said Ellison. “We’re able to offer three competition winners a comprehensive package that features subsidized rent, as well as additional startup resources from complementary programs like Kiva Tulsa and 36 Degrees North.”
The new tenants will be announced in conjunction with the one-year anniversary of Mother Road Market in November. For details on the competition and property renderings, visit www.motherroadmarket.com/shops.
“We envision restoring the vibrancy and innovation to Route 66 in Tulsa, and now with Mother Road Market and Shops at Mother Road Market anchoring those efforts, we feel confident the Route 66 corridor is moving quickly in that direction,” said Ellison.
