Downtown Omaha

DT Omaha is getting an urban, upscale grocery store called Patrick's Market. :yahoo:

"I think the population is probably there to support something like that finally," Spader said. "If they could get people to stop on their way home from these office towers, I think that would be another key to their success."

The Andersen family plans to offer delivery, curbside pick-up and online shopping by early next year.

The independent grocer will offer fresh produce, organic products, cut-to-order meat, a delicatessen, liquor, beer and wine from the 8,712-square- foot store, which has 18 stalls in the parking lot west of the building.

The Andersens intend for fresh meat to be their specialty. And they want to mix small-town friendliness

Sounds like the downtown boom is still going strong! Esp. "NoDo"!!! A grocery store is a key componet that makes urban living possible, which many downtowns truly lack. Hopefully a streetcar-system is implemented! Keep us updated!

Wonder which major corporation has it's eyes on Omaha??

Great thread! Keep up the good work :thumbsup:

Rumors are surfacing about the old World-Herald site DT.

This from Heartland Real Estate Business Journal:

After adding 2 million square feet of office space in 2003 and 2004, downtown office construction has cooled. However, that could soon change. The Omaha World-Herald

The WST is going to be a beaut! I remember reading about it awhile back, great project.

Omaha's skyline and urban core is developing very nicely, I really want to make a spring or summer trip up that way sometime to check it out.

UrbanOutfitters finally opened yesterday in SaddleCreek in NoDo. Their first store in Omaha, of course.

The store opening also marked a milestone for the developing downtown area west of the Qwest Center Omaha and a proposed ballpark. It's the first time in decades that a major national clothing retailer has operated in Omaha's downtown area, as well as the Philadelphia-based company's first foray into Nebraska.
