Millwork Commons

A Neighborhood Reborn

APMA is working with Black Dog Development to master plan and design Millwork Commons, a dynamic new neighborhood in North Downtown Omaha. With a five to ten year timeline, the multi-phased project includes the renovation of historically significant structures, the construction of new mixed-use buildings, and the development of multi-modal transportation infrastructure (pedestrians, bikes, buses and cars). The district will host a variety of uses, including office, retail, residential, that focus on providing access points to all demographics. To achieve an active neighborhood, the design of the spaces between buildings is critical, and as such, the district will feature a series of park and plaza spaces, anchored by a community green, that will encourage interaction between visitors and residents alike and will host an array of cultural programming opportunities.
