TYPROS Street Cred 2021 at the Phoenix District in North Tulsa



What is Street Cred?

Street Cred is TYPROS’ annual community redevelopment project. The event started in 2011 to

highlight the Pearl District’s potential for development. Each year, Street Cred focuses on a

different neighborhood or area of Tulsa that has great potential for commercial and residential

development. Other Street Creds looked at downtown parking lots, Route 66, Red Fork and

South Peoria.


This September, in an effort to model a lively neighborhood culture with food, vendors, art,

interaction, and fun, we will be holding a month of events at various locations along 36th from

Peoria to the Northland Shopping Center. To amplify the work being done by the 36th Street

North community and leverage existing resources, TYPROS Street Cred Committee is reaching

out to 36th St. North business owners, community members, and community stakeholders to

create these events at individual businesses throughout the month of September. We are

seeking vendors, performers, and exhibitors of all kinds, as well as property and brick and

mortar business owners.


Why the Phoenix District?

The Phoenix District is a hotbed of energy and potential that we are eager to support. Not only

are there many new developments arising throughout the area, there is a strong and active

culture of advocacy and investment from residents. TYPROS is committed to using this event to

support the work of existing groups and amplify the voices of current residents as the Phoenix

District takes off.
