Lortondale – Neighborhood in Tulsa
Lortondale, located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is a historic neighborhood of architect-designed mid-century modern homes, friendly social events, two neighborhood pools, and a great mid-town location.
Lortondale was built prior to the Broken Arrow Expressway. In 1954 the neighborhood was 20 minutes from downtown, now it's only a few. In addition to the quick access to downtown, Lortondale has several major retailers, multiple grocery stores, three movie theaters, and a mall within two miles. Within the square mile that Lortondale is located, we have multiple churches, the highly regarded Hoover Elementary and Darlington Park.
The Lortondale Neighborhood was designed in the early 1950s and constructed between 1954 and 1957. The homes were designed by local Tulsa architect Donald Honn and built by developer Howard Grubb. The neighborhood was the recipient of many design awards during the 1950s. Currently, the neighborhood is seeking National Historic Register status.
What was old is new again. This isn't just the case with the style of architecture being popular again, the neighborhood was designed with community in mind and the new residents of Lortondale have taken that banner and run with it. Parties, BBQs, home tours, etc. all lend to a community of great neighbors and friends.
