Oklahoma City Investment Real Estate
The Paseo Arts District was built in 1929 as the first commercial shopping district North of downtown Oklahoma City. The Spanish village with its stucco buildings and clay tile roofs is the home of Oklahoma City’s Artists’ community, the only such district in the state.
Although the Paseo Arts District is in the near north quadrant of the city, it is quite central to Oklahoma City’s most diverse and cultural neighborhoods. Located along Paseo Drive at roughly N. Walker Ave and N.W. 28th Street, the district is home to a number of bars and nightclubs as well as numerous upscale/ethnic restaurants and grills. The area also plays host to an annual Paseo Arts Festival in the spring, usually occurring on Memorial Day weekend.
The larger Paseo Historic Neighborhood area extends between Shartel and Walker, from N.W. 30 to about N.W. 25. In the immediate area are several historic neighborhoods including Mesta Park, Gatewood, Edgemere, Jefferson Park, and Heritage Hills. To the west of the Paseo is the Northwest Business District and the NW 39th Enclave and the Eastside is due east. Immediately southwest of the Paseo is the city’s Chinatown/Little Saigon neighborhood known as Asia District as well as Oklahoma City University. The Paseo was originally developed by Dr. G. A. Nichols, who also developed the Nichols Hills neighborhood.
