The Oddie District
Welcome to The Oddie District! We’re happy you found us.
The Oddie District will be a new and reinvisioned district in Sparks with plans to completely redevelop the former Lowe’s Home Improvement Center, which is currently the largest vacant big-box building in town.
We’re thrilled to bring a two-concept model together that was pioneered by real estate developer Foothill Partners and national startup ecosystem developer Innovation Collective. These concepts will bring vibrant, creative and community-minded energy to a long-empty big-box space, reinvigorating an aging neighborhood in the heart of Sparks.
If you’re passionate about enjoyable workplace collaboration and building a stronger, more resource-rich economy, look no further. The Oddie District aims to contribute to that purpose with the development leadership of Foothill Partners’ Douglas Wiele and Innovation Collective’s Nick Smoot.
The partnership formally unveiled its plans for their Work-Live-Make Innovation Hub on October 19. The Generator, a nonprofit maker space collection of local celebrated artists and engineers, is the cornerstone and largest tenant in The Oddie District.
Come say hi!
