On Tuesday, Owasso City Council approved a major new mixed-use planned unit development (PUD) for the area.

The project, named Emery Village, will feature both commercial and residential properties stretching across 55 acres of land near 106th St. N. and Garnett Rd.

In the planning stages for several months, the PUD will be constructed in five separate phases and consist of retail and shopping, offices and self-storage and private homes.

Owasso Community Development Director Bronce Stephenson said the City developed the new property to continue its expansion efforts in the area of 106th and Garnett, which comprises several hundred acres of available land.

As we had the intersection redone a couple years ago, weve expected that this area, in all directions from the intersection, would start to grow and to take off, he said. (Were) happy to see this area starting to develop a little bit.

The new PUD will feature 495 high-end dwelling units, including 300 multi-family, 85 attached single-family (condos, duplexes, condos, etc.) and 110 traditional detached single-family, according to the site plan.

It states Emery Village will be endowed with ample open spaces and possible amenities such as pools, clubhouses, playgrounds, sports courts, fountain ponds, picnic areas, trails and walkways, gazebos and more.

(Were) trying to put together a product that we thought would be a good fit for Owasso that blends as well as it can with the surrounding properties and provides new housing and commercial opportunities, Stephenson said.

The project, annexed under Ordinances 952 and 1098 and approved with Ordinance 1037, was developed as part of the Owasso 2030 Land Use Master Plan.

Bill and Brian Emery of BAK Development LLC, who own Mingo Manufacturing and Mingo Aerospace in Owasso, have owned the land for around three years and recently partnered with the City of Owasso to develop Emery Village.

Our goal is just to come up with the best use of the land that would work in harmony with the City of Owassos Master Development Plan, Brian said. Were just really excited to develop a new area of community for the people of Owasso.

In addition to BAK Development, other partnering companies for the project include Tanner Consulting LLC and DRM Design Group out of Tulsa.

Stephenson said Emery Village is one of around 18 residential projects comprising more than 1,800 lots or units currently in various stages of development across Owasso.

(Thats) just a really, really significant number of lots and units available, which shows that Owasso continues to be a place where people want to be, Stephenson said.

The projected timeframe of completion for the Emery Village PUD would be within the next couple years, with a pending starting date.
