"It's really time for us to use that make the opportunities for people to live, work, play, and be entertained downtown," Frein said.

The focus of downtown is to make sure the new businesses compliment the others. That's one reason why Spoke House wanted to be downtown.

"Everything that is happening broken arrow is investing a lot of money into it so it made us feel comfortable investing into our business down here," Pfaff said.
