ConAgra site redevelopment
$500 million proposal to transform Conagra campus includes housing, offices, access to lake
» The plaza extension of Harney Street leads to the lake. Visitors walking along the corridor could shop, eat or relax on a sloping green lawn whose zig-zag path winds to the dock area.
» Along the south side of the plaza would be a hotel with up to 200 rooms; a 300-unit apartment building and a low-rise residential structure with condominiums.
» On the north side of the corridor would be a 280-unit apartment complex with parking and about 50,000 square feet of restaurant-focused retail space. A 250,000-square-foot office building would rise, too.
» Farther south on the Conagra campus would rise another office building of about 250,000 square feet and a residential high-rise containing up to 250 units, either condos or apartments.

The first phase of the Conagra plan includes a 350-unit apartment building, a 720-space parking garage, 50,000 square feet of retail space and a hotel that should lead to $100 million in investment, said D’Arcy. It is to break ground next summer.

Omaha Riverfront
$290 million proposal for the Omaha side of the riverfront to create one continuous park. It would involve filling in the Gene Leahy Mall lagoon and bringing the park to street level creating lawn and event space. A promenade that continues east and over the railroad tracks similar to Millennium Park in Chicago. A connected and enhanced Lewis & Clark Landing is envisioned as well. More than half the money has already been privately raised and the city has pledged $50 million.

Flatiron District
About 200 units originally across four buildings, plus however many units are in the big building on 20th & St. Mary’s Ave, and another building in the concept (below the 18th St marker). This whole area is in limbo because of a controversial proposed youth justice center to the north (It is smaller than the existing one. A nonprofit would build it with public funds that would not be voted on).
