HOK to Plan $1.2 Billion Mixed-Use Development in Omaha
Jasper Stone Development has unveiled plans for an expansive, 180-acre mixed-use district in Omaha, Nebraska, planned by HOK.
“A $1.2 billion development proposed for 192nd Street and West Dodge Road would create a bustling ‘gateway to western Omaha’ and would include offices, stores, apartments and green space.
“Dubbed Avenue One, it would be one of the largest developments of its kind in Omaha.”
“More than 180 acres straddling 192nd Street south of West Dodge Road would be developed, the equivalent of about 50 square city blocks. It would have a seven-acre central plaza at its heart, 26 acres of green space and more than 6 miles of walking and biking trails. More than 2,000 residential units and 1.3 million square feet of office and commercial space would be built.
“Developer Curt Hofer and his Jasper Stone Development of Omaha won unanimous preliminary approval for the plan and rezoning from the Omaha Planning Board on March 1. The project, once fully approved, is expected to take 15 years to complete.”
“The development would be a ‘unique place in western Omaha,’ said Lynn Carlton, an urban planner with HOK, a Kansas City firm working with Jasper Stone.
“She said Avenue One would be focused on health and would be a ‘multi-generational, walkable environment.’”
