North Omaha's old Fair Deal Cafe

North Omaha's old Fair Deal Cafe is center of $12.2 million plan

http://www.omaha.com/article/20120914/M ... llion-plan


Omaha officials broke ground today on a $12.2 million project to revive a two-square-block area that includes part of the historic North 24th Street commercial corridor.

The new “Fair Deal Urban District” will replace blighted properties and empty lots with apartment housing for seniors, single homes for families and an arts center.

Anchoring the project is the old Fair Deal Cafe, referred to fondly as the “Black City Hall” because of its reputation as the gathering place years ago for north Omaha leaders, deal-makers and visiting politicians.


The Fair Deal Urban District marks the beginning of the broader, $1.43 billion North Omaha Village Revitalization Plan, which was announced in the summer of 2011 and is to be completed in phases and funded by a combination of public and private funds.

I love this sort of development, beautifying an area of town that is sorely in need of redevelopment to provide growth for the residents there! The style doesn't look half bad either, although I would have liked to see more renderings...

If this is what we have to look forward to in the North Omaha Master Plan count me on board.

I wonder why it has taken four years to get to this part of the project?
The 40 Unit senior apartments and townhomes are already finished.
Known as
Village East Fair Deal Senior Apartments 40 Units
2011 N 25th St, Omaha, NE 68111

The cafe is located at 2118 North 24th Street, per https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_Deal_Cafe
I am tossing out the location as the links to those articles are long gone.

It would indeed be nice to see some new development here. Lots of vacant areas to fill in.

I like the way they are keeping the original look of the building in the new design as well.

Setting Up Shop In Shipping Containers Plan For North Omaha Growth

John Chapman - WOWT wrote:Those plans include knocking down the old Fair DealCafe and replacing it with a new fair deal, a health food store and eight new "micro-businesses."

The micro-business will be located in shipping containers. They will have walls, floors, electricity and running water and will house businesses.
