Re: Hello Everyone

I'm good. It's a blue & sunny day out. I just applied for a new apartment downtown, which I'm surprised I can afford.

Are you always awake at 2:51am posting on new forums?

Re: Official: Capitol District

Okay, I went into the apartment building. It is nice, but for the price, not among the nicest in the downtown area. At least they didn't cheap out on all the features for the sake of cramming more units. The kitchen has enough cabinetry, actually. The bedroom has a ceiling fan and is carpeted. The b...

Re: Phi Kappa Psi house Redevelopment (36th and Farnam)

This is certainly breaking the mold of most recent east Omaha developments that provide roughly the same amount of parking as units. Between this and the Colonial, which has next to no dedicated parking, it will really put a test out there for how much parking developers need to provide and how wel...

Okay, but what Omaha does need is better mass transit to the airport.

There are 50 parking stalls in a podium parking garage beneath the building. Between the 800 stall lot to the northeast and the 200 stalls to the southwest there seems to be ample parking for this building - kudos for finding shared parking solutions instead of building more surface parking. That's...

Re: Blackstone Business Improvement District

Now's the time to push for a return of sidewalks. (Pedestrian Lives Matter!) There are many places where two people can't pass each other. The return to a two-way street was the first step the neighborhood needed to rebuild, but now we need to take the next step.

Considering Lot B doesn't even fill up during the CWS... Lot D usually has hundreds of empty stalls too. Well, it doesn't fill up during an out of town event. Most of the people in the stadium pictured probably stayed in a DT hotel. But what about an in town event, like a Creighton game or a concert?

Thanks for the photos. That view may come in handy for updates on the hotel at Dodge and Saddlecreek as well :;): I would like to get up there often, but as people move into their offices in the Cancer Center, it'll be less likely each day. There's quite a bit of restricted space in that building.
