Sorensen Plaza (NE 60th & Sorensen)

Postby swinquest » Fri Jul 25, 2014 10:16 pm

Driving between 58th and 60th on Sorensen (which the gas station has been closed on the Northeast corner), I noticed that there have been a large number of trees cleared and are being prepared to be removed.

Anyone know what is going in here?

Yeah I noticed this the other day too. They did more or less a clear cutting of all the trees that were between the station (on left) and the building that OWH built (on right) and then quit using for their north deliveries.

I looked up the owner which is Sixty Sorensen LLC on Google and found lots of PDF's with a diagrams and premits. Looks like small strip malls near Sorensen and some type of housing near the back. I did not read everything tho.

The owner of White Lotus was on Grow Omaha as Trenton's sidekick, but only caught a little about this. I think they are putting in a 15 acre strip mall there, they have at least one national tenant signed on.

Looking at some of those, I see Senior Housing and Convenience Storage units. Also a gas station which Sorensen Parkway could use and there are were also a couple of fast foods.

Sorensen Pkwy - 56th - 60th

Postby Jeff » Mon Aug 11, 2014 8:58 am

Hey All -

I live up near Sorensen Parkway, and recently have noticed that they've cleared out hundreds of trees on the north side of the street, between 56th & 60th Streets. This is right across from that old shopping center where the Eagles Nest Church is now located.

They've cleared all the trees to probably 500 feet north of the street. Obviously, this is quite a project.


Any idea what's going on there? What's going to be built?

Sorry. How far back was that thread buried?

I thought we had more posts on this development, I remember taking a pic after they graded this property... but now it is just a weed field, with only Family Dollar admitting they want in.

Family Dollar? I'm not getting this rumor... Is a Family Dollar the first building here? Is there any infrastructure here yet?

I drive by there every day and it is just a big field of weeds. They tore apart the gas station and quickly rebuilt it; still, it remains closed. I don't know why they cut down all of those trees for nothing.

Yeah I haven't figured out what is going on with that gas station. The pit in new pumps, new cement, redid the building AND that was all done months ago. Otherwise like choke posted a big field of weeds.

I noticed this morning as I went by that there was a construction trailer and earth mover next to a new driveway. Maybe something is finally happening there.

Meanwhile the gas station on the corner still hasn't opened.

I too live in that area, and just noticed that - after a couple years of nothing happening - they're doing earthwork again. They're grading it down almost like it's going to be a small housing development going in there. Sure hope it's not a whole bunch of those Celebrity Homes!

This area has turned into a huge dirt and gravel pit. First they seem to be leveling it off and then they built a couple huge hills of dirt and gravel coming from somewhere. I don't know if it supposed be totally level all the way back to the north edge from Sorenson.

Sorensen Plaza (formerly Sorensen Place) is being replatted tomorrow, so it looks like they might have some tenants in line.
