KANEKO | 1111 Jones St


The public will be able to view the proposals of the five Green in the City finalist teams at an open house on Tuesday, January 21 at KANEKO from 5:30 to 7:00pm.  This open house is free and open to the public.  Following the event, the proposals will be on display through Friday, January 24.

Green in the City, launched in September, is a national design competition to create an innovative urban community space in downtown Omaha.  The site is adjacent to two projects under development in the 10th and Pacific block – the new home of the Blue Barn Theatre and Boxcar 10, a mixed use building with a small parking area.

The five finalist teams are:

* DeOld Andersen Architecture (Omaha) and Project for Public Spaces (NYC)

* Design With Company (Chicago)

* Design Workshop (Aspen)

* Dlandstudio (Brooklyn)

* El Dorado Inc. (Kansas City)

These finalists will be interviewed by a jury of five landscape, art, and design professionals, and the winning team will be announced in the coming weeks.
