Gathering Place effect: Brookside real estate market surging
It will be a while before visitors can sniff the flowers or catch a concert in the expanses of A Gathering Place for Tulsa, the city’s world-class park going up south of downtown along Riverside Drive.
But the urban green space already is boosting the marketability of homes in the popular area, real estate agents say.
“It’s amazing,” says Ashley Wozniak, a real estate agent with Coldwell Banker Select. “In the listing remarks, almost every single one of them, you see ‘close to Gathering Place, Trader Joe’s (at 37th Street and Peoria Avenue).’ But mostly every listing that’s close by, we use the Gathering Place. That really has brought up the value the homes in that area, for sure.”
