CenturyLink Center and Riverfront

Omaha, Nebraska
When the City of Omaha was ready to update its image and revitalize its river “front door”, it selected Lamp Rynearson for design and construction administration services for infrastructure improvements. The $281 million Omaha convention center/arena and riverfront redevelopment is now a destination for Omaha’s citizens and its visitors. As a leader and coordinator of the multi-disciplined design team, Lamp Rynearson developed a Master Plan for the 120-acre site and surrounding redevelopment areas.
