CENTRAL STATES REGION OF THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS MERIT AWARD OF EXCELLENCE (2009)
Utica Place is a classic infill redevelopment project designed to provide retail and office space, as well as condominium living. The project captures the spirit of Tulsa’s urban midtown by incorporating the concept of “smart growth” within the context of the Utica Square Shopping Center and the St. John Medical Center.
Throughout the development, a Mediterranean architectural aesthetic is maintained. This includes stucco and stone exterior finishes, and a terra-cotta-blend, clay-tile roof. The nine-story tower includes five floors, with 50,000 square feet of office space and ten penthouse residences. More office space is provided on the southeast corner of the development in the form of a two-story, residential-style office building.
The partially underground parking garage is located on a sloping site which allows it to blend in with the surrounding landscape and adjacent structures. All parking levels are flat with each level accessed from different locations on the site. A section of the lowest level is tucked under the office/residential tower, providing private parking for the upper-level residences.
Each residence within Utica Place has a unique floor plan with ample opportunity for individual design decisions. The residences are planned with a design emphasis on courtyards, secured privacy, and provision of excellent views. Ground-level areas are extensively landscaped and provide an attractive streetscape.
