Re: Tiny Homes

Lincoln also has the urbanist development, Fallbrook. You can walk to school, YMCA, grocery, medical, etc. The development is 10 minutes from downtown/UNL and close to the I-80 interchange. Once they start adding afordable homes (-$300K) the area will explode. In my opinion, the only way the urbanis...

Re: Dam Site 15A (168th and Fort)

Sorry, that the name of the first Native American Woman doctor in the United States isn't good enough for Omaha. Oh Omaha, I wonder where that name came from?

Re: Lincoln restaurants

My take is that Omaha has a much wider ethnic mix that dates back to the development of the city and railroads, etc. Omaha needed a huge workforce to build a railroad and build industries. Irish, Italian, Czech, German, etc cultures came to Omaha to work and settle. The great steakhouses &, Cani...

The Paxton which has condos ranging from 300K to over 800K is directly across the street from the current library.


OK, your risk not mine.

Re: UNL Innovation campus

I just happened to be on the Innovation Campus yesterday and saw the new Mill area under construction. Big space with floor to ceiling glass walls. Artwork in the hallways with comfortable space for working etc. Very beautiful calming space, nice to see this come together.

Re: Crossroads - Redevelopment Plan

I had a group attend the show "Beehive" at the small theater in the Crossroads. The performance was fantastic, Omaha should take pride in local talent. On the other hand, the Crossroads itself was so depressing. How could a city the size and stature of Omaha, allow this eyesore to exist? T...

Re: Aloft Hotel - 180th and Harney

In Boston there is a new Aloft and Element Hotel accross the street from each other. These two hotel concepts work well together. It would be nice to get another hotel in Midtown. The Element is great, add an Aloft and then perfect.

Re: Boys Town and farmland (144th Dodge)

Let's see if we can get 2 bedroom condos for under $200,000 and monthly fees around $200 I will be right next to you with a deposit as long as they have first floor retail. I would even go $250k depending on the HOA fees. I originally thought of this property like Westgate in Glendale AZ and they h...

Re: What does Omaha need?

Omaha needs to stop following and reinventing what other cities design. Grow Omaha by new fresh ideas. Sadle Creek records, Godfathers Pizza, the Old Market, The College World Series, UNO are great. Omaha was named after the native ameican tribe meaning "Against the current," so do it. Sel...

Re: Journey Senior Living (Canopy & N Sts.)

If this was a 50+ active adult condo facility, this would have been very successful in Lincoln. Independent living folks do not want to live in a hospital, and that's pretty much what an assisted living facility is. Build something for middle income retired folks that are in their 50-60-70's, not ju...

Re: River's Edge Development (Playland Park)

I hope they end up building condos that you can purchase. It seems everything built these days are rental apartments. What about people who want to live permanently in the metro area? Everything doesn't need to be super high-end. $250- 300K+ condos would sell fast. Build affordable housing, keep peo...

I am soon to retire, I want to live (buy) an Omaha home/condo/townhome. I do not need someone to feed me. I do not need a concierge, or 24 hr. health care. Where are the ...
