Renaissance - Tulsa, OK

The Renaissance Neighborhood is nestled in the heart of Tulsa's historic midtown. It is defined by the area between 11th Street and 15th Street East, from Harvard to Lewis South. Flanked by "Cherry Street" (15th) and historic Route 66 (11th), this neighborhood enjoys a selection of restaurants, boutique shops, antique shops, and funky vintage stores.

The neighborhood boasts a variety of architectural styles including Craftsman Bungalow, Swiss Chalet, Colonial, and Tudor Revival which are beautifully framed by mature trees. The majority of the homes were built between the 1920s and 40s with some newer builds from various decades sprinkled throughout the area.

The association is committed to protecting and restoring the historical character of the homes and businesses in the Renaissance. They strive to foster a closely connected community that is welcoming and inclusive by providing information and guidance to all residents.

RNA Board members volunteer their time and talents to build a stronger sense of community. They organize social events to allow residents to meet one another. They hold neighborhood meetings and use social media to share information that affects their residents.

The Renaissance Neighborhood Association was established in 1994. An early accomplishment was successfully preventing the demolition of the Casa Loma Building at 11th and Columbia Ave. This building is now known as the historic Max Campbell Building and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has been completely renovated and is open for business today.

Other accomplishments of the newly formed RNA include preventing an auto repair shop from expanding into the residential part of the neighborhood and working with the Tulsa Fire Department to locate a new station on 15th Street rather than in the middle of a residential area. RNA continues today to advocate to maintain the charm and integrity of the historic neighborhood.

The median listing home price in Renaissance was $235K in January 2022, trending down -1.9% year-over-year. The median listing home price per square foot was $194. The median home sold price was $201K.
