Conagra campus development plans

Postby Guest » Fri Feb 10, 2017 7:41 am

A company is going to be announcing plans for the Conagra campus soon. The development is going to be very good for downtown.

I'm guess you're not talking about 29 or 33 story high rises?

There's definitely no need to tear down any of the ConAgra buildings in the near future, but I think it would make the current buildings way more attractive to potential office tenants if a developer built some mixed-use stuff from just north of Embassy Suites all the way up to 10th & Farnam in order to better weave the buildings into the urban fabric. You'd have the urban amenities right to your doorstep on the west, and on the east a beautiful lake with walking paths.

You can't polish a turd. What was good for downtown was for CONagra to keep its headquarters in Omaha. Nothing can make up for what Omaha lost with CONagra leaving. It didn't need to leave either. It is still BS!

The city's plan needs to be rebuild the street grid even if this involves tearing down several of the Con Agra buildings. Embassy Suites and some of the current buildings fit in a new Street Grid. The rest of the area you could open up for mixed use development connecting the Old Market to the park and the lake.

Architecturally, we'd be much better off today if they had left back in 1988....before they built their new suburban campus downtown.

I realize you are a Jobbers Canyon fan. The net effect would have been a bunch of empty offices at Lonergan lake north of Omaha. And the fire traps that were the Jobbers Canyon.

Yes. I am.

Except the net effect would be we'd still have 22 historic buildings with over 1.7 million square feet of space occupied with 1500-2500 people living, working, eating, drinking, etc., in a truly spectacular historic district. There still would have been room for HOA park and more connections to the riverfront from the Old Market. You might have noticed almost every single available building near the Old Market has been re-purposed over the last 30 years. Just look at how many people are living in the area now.


FYI, although some of the warehouses were wood, many of the post-1900 buildings were all concrete & masonry construction. The wood ones were of heavy timber construction, which typically had a 3-hour fire rating. All of them would have been upgraded with automatic fire sprinkler systems when they were gradually re-purposed over the last 30 years.

You do realize some of the Jobber buildings are still standing and they aren't fire traps, right?

At the YP Summit today, the mayor said Conagra has plans for the campus and she was impressed with them. Didn't give any more details though.

She's been saying that for a minute now. Would love if ConAgra would release their plans soon!

Con Agra no longer owns most of the Con Agra campus. They are leaseholders. The sold large chucks of the land to multiple other groups years ago to generate revenue.

I find it 100% credible that there are plans being developed to develop the Con Agra Campus. I find it very hard to believe that it is Con Agra behind the plans.

This is mostly incorrect. Com Agra owns most of the campus, and even bought a couple back in the past couple years to control the entire site.

I was basing my info on stories that came out when they announced they were moving their headquarters. Apparently they have bought some additional pieces back since then.
