Waterford Estates in east Lincoln, Nebraska, features 650 acres of mixed-use development, including a range of residential options, a future office park, and retail center. The development is situated in the Stevens Creek Watershed. The project is between O Street and Holdrege Street, along either side of 98th Street.
The cornerstone of Waterford Estates is its 65-acre lake. In addition to providing low impact recreation and beauty, the lake serves as a flood control measure. To create visual appeal, the developer brought in boulders from Minnesota to line the lakefront and provide shore stabilization.
With its location at the eastern edge of the city, the developer has worked closely with the City of Lincoln to finance the necessary infrastructure improvements ahead of the city’s schedule for this area.
Olsson is providing a full complement of civil engineering services for this project, including the following:
Upon completing phased construction, Waterford Estates will include 100 acres of office/retail development and a 20-acre Lincoln Public Schools elementary school site. The community features a full range of residential housing options from high-end properties surrounding the lake to mid-level properties throughout much of the development. Plans include townhomes and apartments to round out the residential choices in Waterford Estates.
