An upscale outlet mall being developed by the biggest mall builder in the country is inching closer to reality.

On Monday night, the Jenks City Council unanimously approved a request by River District Development LLC to OK a preliminary/final plat of Simon Property Group-affilitated Tulsa Premium Outlets, which anticipates opening in the spring of 2021 at East 101th Place South and South Seventh Street.

The current conditional plat is the full and final plat that meets the requirements of the Jenks zoning codes and subdivision regulations. It dedicates all necessary right-of-way, utility and drainage easements and documents the final covenants and planned unit development (PUD) requirements.

The Jenks Planning Commission voted unanimously in November to recommend approval of the conditional final plat.

A retail platform of Indianapolis-based Simon Property Group, Simon Premium Outlets confirmed to the Tulsa World this past summer its commitment to build in Jenks.

Tulsa Premium Outlets LLC had purchased 51 acres for the project for $12 million. Simon also owns Woodland Hills Mall, a regional mall that opened in Tulsa in 1976 and was purchased by the company in 2002.

“At the heart of Simon’s strategy is connecting with communities where we can raise the bar for a new shopping experience, and we are proud to confirm we’ve found that opportunity in the Tulsa market,” Simon Premium Outlets CEO Stephen Yalof said in a statement in August. “Tulsa Premium Outlets will be a regional destination that offers strong value, fantastic fashion and an unparalleled experience for our guests. We are working towards a spring 2021 opening and look forward to sharing the center’s progress as it unfolds.”

The shopping center in Jenks is expected to occupy at least 340,000 square feet, according to city records.
