The City received Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in response to the May 20, 2013 tornado. A portion of this grant will be used to fund The Curve, a mixed-income, mixed-use development. The Curve will be located at SW 17th and Janeway Avenue, where the Royal Park Mobile Home community once stood. The site is a little over 14 acres. It will include three buildings, one of which will be mixed use. The total development cost will be $49,725,887, which includes a $15,960,249.45 subsidy provided by the CDBG-DR funds. The Curve development will be one of the final projects that will be funded by CDBG-DR for the City of Moore. It is also the biggest project the City will complete with this grant. The City first purchased the land in 2015 and has since completed demolition, utility installation, and a masterplan for the project. Development of the masterplan included several public meetings and workshops that gathered citizen input from all across the Moore community.
There will be 244 total units, including 219 affordable units and 25 market rate units.
Amenities will include an open common area, a business center, a 24-hour fitness center, a swimming pool, a communal barbecue area, and a green space.
Families and individuals qualify for affordable housing based on their income. For example, a family of four could qualify if their annual income is less than $59,500. Here are the current Fiscal Year's (2020) Income Limits Summary for Cleveland County, Oklahoma.
Inquiries about living at The Curve can be sent to the following email: [email protected] or to speak to the leasing office by phone, call 405-676-9055. The expected construction completion is early 2021. The city will not be accepting or handling any applications. The application process will be completed by the property management for The Curve. Any updates to the application process will be provided here for your convenience.
Below is the most up-to-date Site Plan for the Curve. There will be three buildings, one including commercial space. There will also be a green space, titled in this plan as a "Great Lawn." Parking will be in the back of the development and a Pool/Courtyard is planned as part of the amenities. There will be a leasing office on-site as well.
A master plan for a 14.4-acre site located at Southwest 17th Street and Janeway Avenue. The City has indicated its vision is to include new urbanist principles to develop a master plan for a “village center” concept that will include mixed income housing, as well as the possibility of an additional market driven mix of uses. A consultant will lead a team in facilitating community visioning process with a variety of stakeholders, to include a vision and design charrette, that will ultimately result in a master development plan for the site and a regulating framework, such as a hybrid form-based code or a feasible alternative, that ensures the plan’s implementation.
The City sought qualifications and competitive proposals to select a development team to design, finance, build, and manage a mixed-use, mixed income project with at least 200 units of housing to a maximum of 412 units (of which 80% must be affordable) complemented with retail space, common area, parking spaces, and amenities within the development area consistent with the SW 17th/Janeway Masterplan. The request for qualifications and proposals were published on July 7th and responses were due to the City on October 6, 2017. City Council awarded the contract to Belmont Development on December 17, 2018.
