The Woodlands

By: Mr. Wilson on September 13, 2005
Another humorously named subdivision has been proposed in Southeast Lincoln. The Woodlands will feature "about 1,000 homes and 450 apartments on about 360 acres on the south side of Yankee Hill Road between 70th and 84th streets." (Question for the LJS: Are apartments not homes?) The subdivision will also feature 600,000 square feet of retail and office space, described by developer Rick Krueger as "mostly neighborhood uses," by which he means no big box retailers. It would be nice to see a development actually integrate the retail and office space into the neighborhood, but I suspect that space will be relegated to the periphery, as is the norm in suburbia.
