Omaha Design District

Does Omaha need a design district? If so, what does a design district need?

On March 2, 2017, a handful of influential community members participated in a discussion regarding the opportunity of a Design District for Omaha, Nebraska. On March 3, 2017, the community was invited to review an investigation of precedent and context into the idea of a design district in Omaha, Nebraska. Then, they added their ideas.

The event was a collaboration between Design Alliance Omaha, Omaha by Design, and HDR. This was just the beginning of the conversation. If you’re interested in participating, email your questions (and answers) to

Event results were captured and assembled into a 24-page booklet.
