We are delighted to share that downtown Omaha’s expansive urban park revitalization, The Riverfront, is the winner of a 2023 Planet Positive Award for landscape architecture. Curated by a distinguished jury and organized by Metropolis Magazine, the prestigious awards highlight exemplary projects that benefit people and the planet. Projects were evaluated on performance in sustainability, carbon capture, health and wellness, access, impact, and of course, design.
The Riverfront succeeded across all categories, particularly in improving community mobility and access while strengthening environmental connections. The Planet Positive Award winners represent the highest achievement in design that addresses ecosystem health, human health, and equity. We congratulate the City of Omaha and all of the committed design team members for their commitment to a regenerative and equitable future.
