Vast Bank Announces First Floor Tenants for New H.Q.
More details have been released about the new six-story Vast Bank headquarters currently under construction at 110 N. Elgin Ave. in downtown Tulsa.
Besides tellers who will stand at kiosks with iPads to quickly serve customers, the open space will feature curated contemporary artwork, grab-and-go sushi and a new coffee shop. The ground level will also include a complimentary co-working space that downtown professionals and entrepreneurs can use for off-site meetings.
Doug DeJarnette, senior vice president of private banking for Vast Bank, said. “The bank is really taking a step back from trying to be the star of the show at this location. We want it to be a space for the community to use and enjoy—a place where people can come and grab a quick bite, meet a colleague and do so in a place that features beautiful architecture and inspiring artwork.”
Hummingbird Coffee + Beer will launch its business in the new open-concept space, which will be shared with the bank’s teller area. Hummingbird is the venture of native-Tulsan Brian Sachse and draws its name from a Leon Russell song. Sachse lived for seven years in Portland and fell in love with their coffee scene. He is partnering with Portland-based Stumptown coffee to supply the beans for Hummingbird.
The ground floor will include a designated gallery space for Orth Contemporary, which will move from its current location in Kendall Whittier. Owner Katie Orth plans to take advantage of the modern open space of the building and the momentum of the adjacent Tulsa Arts District.
itr go go, a concept of Greg Hughes with in the raw and Architect James Boswell, will offer grab-and-go sushi rolls, salads, bento boxes and many other favorites. This will be in addition to the rooftop in the raw Vū, details of which will follow with other upscale dining options this summer.
The venture is the result of several lifelong bonds and Tulsans choosing to stay in Tulsa and invest in their community. There are many childhood friendships and family histories shared between the collaborators (Katie Orth, Doug DeJarnette, Tom Biolchini, Greg Hughes, James Boswell and Brian Sachse).
The 100,000-square-foot building is set to be completed in December 2019 and also will feature a rentable rooftop terrace, the Rendezvous Room. Each floor will feature a terrace and view of ONEOK Field. Other tenants include BKD CPAs and Advisors and Casillas Petroleum. Additional space is still available for lease. The building was designed by KKT Architects and developed by the Ross Group.
