O Street Project Details
O Street has always been the commercial center of Lincoln, Nebraska. “O Street is the spine of our city,” said Jill Dolberg of the Nebraska State Historical Society. “It’s in a constant state of development and it reincarnates itself over and over.”
Today that reincarnation continues, thanks to some forward thinking people at Lincoln Public School Board and Continuum Partners. Their progressive plan brings new vitality to the neighborhood, while being sensitive to traffic flow, parking and the needs of the neighborhood itself.
After a fire destroyed the former Lincoln Public School headquarters, the school board selected Continuum Partners to help turn the seven acres at 59th and O Streets into a mixed-use development.
The project includes a 100,000 square-foot new LPS administrative building and a commercial development. Continuum brought in Lincoln’s first Whole Foods Market as the anchor tenant. Joining the 30,000 square-foot high-end market is another 11,600 square feet of retail space, including Chipotle, Select Comfort, Massage Envy and Jos A. Bank.
