North 30th Choice Neighborhood
LRK served as the planning coordinator and design lead on this 425-unit, multi-phase, mixed-income, and mixed-use HUD Transformation Plan for the North 30th Corridor neighborhood. For 30-plus years the residents of Spencer Homes and the larger historically African-American North Omaha suffered through economic disenfranchisement, social isolation, and the indignity of a Federal Highway (75 North) spitting their community in half. The LRK plan builds off a city and non-profit investment strategy to complete a “Neighborhood of Choice” in this multi-cultural neighborhood.
