Fair Deal Marketplace
The Return of a 24th St. Staple
APMA and Omaha Economic Development Corporation (OEDC) collaborated on this one-of-a-kind space along N. 24th Street. The marketplace consists of micro-retail units made of adapted shipping containers and housing eight small-businesses, including a popcorn maker and clothing boutique. A new building mimics the shape of the original Fair Deal Cafe and houses a restaurant and small grocery store. The project benefited from HUD financing as it addressed the food desert in this historic neighborhood. The end result is a unique experience anchored in historical context that sets the standard for future development in the area.
Scope of Work
Date of Completion
14 shipping containers were used in the construction of the micro-retail units. The shipping containers were fabricated off-site and re-assembled on site.
“It brings positive [change] to the corridor. These businesses provide not just economic development for the business owners, but it also provides jobs to support them.”
