Grandpa's C Mart - Dundee

Dundee to lose store, gain restaurant

Grandpa's C Mart in Omaha's Dundee neighborhood has been more than just a grocery store and deli....

....But that all will end Sunday when owners Lou and Paula Hyland retire and close the doors for good.

Yet, there's excitement about the area and the property's future.

The Hylands have leased it to Willy Theisen, a restaurateur who heads Business Ventures LLC and owns Pitch Coal-Fire Pizzeria across the street from Grandpa's.

Theisen said he's working on creating another new-to-the-market restaurant concept like he did with Pitch, although he said it's premature to release details.

Theisen told the group he has sold his controlling interest in Pitch Pizzeria and has plans to open a breakfast and lunch restaurant across the street in the former Grandpa's C Mart and deli, a space that he leased in 2012. The menu is finished and renderings have been drawn for the new concept, which will feature a rotisserie and some Mexican dishes.

http://www.omaha.com/money/developers-hope-proposed-mixed-use-building-on-dundee-s-main/article_9cbe69c0-348b-5e48-a22e-867c53bdbd00.html

A vacant convenience store on Dundee’s main street will give way to a new three-story building that includes a restaurant, offices and apartments.

Construction is expected to begin by next spring on the building at 5018 Underwood Ave., ending years of rumors and ruminating about what could and should happen with the former Grandpa’s C-Mart property.

The new building’s form and function are meant to evoke Dundee’s history, mesh with the evolving neighborhood and help set the tone for further redevelopment.

A restaurant, retail business or both will occupy the first floor. Willy Theisen, founder of Pitch Pizzeria across the street, has expressed interest in opening an eatery in the new building.

The second floor will hold offices, possibly including a pediatric medical clinic. The company behind the project, Red Brick Development LLC, is headed by Dr. Kurt Davey, a pediatrician who lives in Dundee.

The third story will comprise six apartments, ranging from 600 square feet to about 1,000 square feet. They’ll be market rate, with rents ranging from $850 to $1,375 a month.

Wow, that should really start to transform that block. Hopefully some day they will build on that lot next to KFAB.

Not very detailed, but you can see the scale will certainly be in line with the rest of Underwood. Setback 3rd floor is a nice touch.

Sounds like a perfect fit for this great neighborhood!
An online auction for the apartment rental units would be fun to watch. They will be snapped up like Buffett bobble heads on Berkshire weekend.

Seriously, one of those apartments with that huge deck overlooking Dundee would be a great place to live.

Looks great. As mentioned, it fits in perfectly with the neighborhood. It is reminiscent of much older brick buildings in the old market, but with a new spin on the upper floors.

This really does look like a perfect fit for the neighborhood.

The most efficient and attractive urban design has more dense development on the major streets, blending into single-family and other less dense development in the blocks away from it. This is a good example of how that can be done.

Looks like they've provisioned the design for another structure to its easy. Doubt that implicates anything but at least it's a future possibility for a wall-to-wall neighbor.

Put a similar structure to the east then flatten the strip mall to the west and build a small parking deck with retail at street level.

I wish they would put a temporary side walk in the street. Even in the most pedestrian oriented parts of Omaha we don't provide the basics.

Is there a detour? They could be violating some ADA rules.

The other side of the street I suppose? I guess that Omaha doesn't have an ordinance to mandate constructors keep the sidewalks open. Not only here, but Capitol, Blackstone Apts, Highline 2, ect all block the sidewalks.

ADA regulations are federally mandated. They might be contingent on there being a local sidewalk ordinance or having adopted some sort of ADA complying resolution but I don't think so.

There are most likely exceptions to the ADA and other sidewalk rules for temporary disruptions caused by such things as construction and the immediate need for contractors to have access to their construction site. Having a temporary sidewalk in part of the street lane could compromise safety. Seems simple enough to walk on the other side of the street.

Nope. Trust me, that line of thinking opens up a Pandora's box. Creating a temporary sidewalk is simple, it happens all the time here. They can get around it if they have crosswalks right where the sidewalk closes. But there needs to be something.

I really like the wrapping on the chain link construction fence that makes it look like a brick wall. It definitely conveys the keep the heck out of our construction area message and it makes things look tidy.
