With more than 60 companies and nonprofit organizations located in the repurposed Mastercraft Building, WP Engine (formerly Flywheel), located in the historic Ashton building, Millwork Commons is a hub for tech, art, design, and community growth. The neighborhood also includes distinctive businesses such as Archetype Coffee, Hutch Modern, Kros Strain Draft Works, Sweet Magnolias Bake Shop, Clean Slate, and Coneflower Creamery, with more dining and services coming soon!

A long-term goal for Millwork Commons is to strengthen Omaha’s urban core and help define the city as a culturally vibrant and inclusive place. Public art and dynamic public spaces are essential components of the community.
The development of Millwork Commons is led by Paul and Annette Smith of Black Dog Management, an investment firm focused on strategic partnerships in real estate and property investments in Omaha’s urban core with a belief in making inspiring places to live, work, connect, explore, and unwind. We are passionate about creating an inclusive community. We believe diversity drives innovation and better solutions, so we are building a culture where differences, multiple approaches, and points of view are encouraged, supported, and valued. We embrace diversity and partner with organizations and individuals who do the same.
