Kite Realty Group Trust announced that it has executed a lease with REI Co-op at Belle Isle Station in Oklahoma City. This will be REI’s first location in Oklahoma.
The specialty outdoor retailer will occupy 23,000 square feet in a space formerly occupied by Babies R Us. Scheduled to open in fall 2019, REI will join a tenant lineup that includes Nordstrom Rack, Ulta Beauty, Ross and Old Navy.
“With activities like paddling along the Oklahoma River, to hiking in the Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge, Oklahoma City is an ideal community for the co-op to join,” said Kristen Engels, REI retail director for the southwest district. “We are excited to open at Belle Isle Station and provide our 46,500 members in the state with quality gear and outdoor experiences.”
Belle Isle Station is located just north of downtown Oklahoma City at the junction between several critical interstate corridors, including Northwest Expressway and Route 66.
“We are thrilled that REI will be joining us in Oklahoma City,” said Tom McGowan, President and Chief Operating Officer of Kite Realty Group. “REI’s unique in-store experience and commitment to the outdoor community align well with the purposeful and compelling shopping experience we bring to our high-quality retail destinations.”
