There comes a time in the life of any city when it’s time for a refresh.
Joplin, Missouri, working with developer Woodsonia Real Estate Inc. and OWN, Inc., aimed to revitalize a decaying Hammons Boulevard district that was ripe for redevelopment.
To accomplish this, Joplin established a Community Improvement District (CID) for this previously blighted area 70 acres in size. The efforts would result in a new shopping destination and apartment complex.
The primary challenges? Working around the existing conditions, including the planning and construction sins of the past. Especially the creation of several right-of-ways on public tracts of land.
For starters, OWN helped with conceptual designs and Phase 1 environmental. The team spent nearly a year gathering Exhibits to set up the CID.
The team then worked with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) on the roadways servicing the development. On 32nd Street: a new traffic signal was implemented. Then 36th Street was widened to accommodate additional traffic drawn to the area.
Today, all of the public work is complete with construction of a home improvement store underway. Once that is complete, construction of the apartments will soon follow with platting ready to accommodate several 8-plexes and seven 14-plexes, in addition to a clubhouse and pool.
In total, OWN provided Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, Drone/LiDAR, Conceptual Design, and Permitting on the project. This helped to bring the Hammons Boulevard district up to modern standards while providing the people of Joplin with a welcoming location to shop and live.
