One of Tulsa’s unique attractions is being eyed for a facelift.
The Downtown Coordinating Council on Thursday presented to the Tulsa Development Authority its vision for $2.35 million in improvements to the Center of the Universe and Boston Avenue pedestrian bridge and plaza.
At a virtual meeting, the TDA approved of $191,750 in Technology TIF (tax increment financing) No. 3 unobligated funds to support design and construction.
Thousands of people annually experience the Center of the Universe’s echo-chamber acoustics, artwork and lighting installation.
