Looks like they seeded this lot. Let's hope it's just to keep dust down until they start and not a sign of a longer term wait.

Something obviously needed here from the planning department.

Approval of an Amendment to the
DOWNTOWN NORTHEAST REDEVELOPMENT PLAN to expand the Plan Area

LOCATION: An area generally bounded by Chicago Street on the north, 17th Street on the east, Dodge Street on the south and 20th Street on the west

Maybe this is related to the proposed refurbishment of the building on 18th & Dodge?

I'm wondering if it has more to do with redeveloping this area? And making the interstate exit end up on Chicago?

I really think this was a great opportunity to restore the street grid and split this in to multiple plots per block and allow the area to develop organically / by the market.

I'm not sure there's a more disappointing development in Omaha, including the planned freeway widening to subsidize increased sprawl.

RUMOR: from a source I trust, there is a major Omaha employer with no presence in downtown currently that will occupy the office component of this project. He declined to say who they were but said it will be major news. He didn't not know of that meant more height than the most recent site plan. He said hundreds of employees and that the company occupies multiple locations throughout the metro.

This is vague, I know, but I have a pretty good track record om here so I hope I'm given the benifit of the doubt.

I'm going to work on finding out more. :D

So no Kiewit, Mutual, First Data.... I know West Corp is having issues, so would they have the stability to move to a downtown office? Perhaps CHI? Valmont? CSG just built their new campus.

Why "no First Data"? They've got hundreds of people scattered around town, and I'm not aware of any downtown location.

I have also heard this vague rumor. Same M.O. A company scattered throughout Omaha wanting a presence downtown...

First Data's larger locations are production related, and wouldn't likely move to an office tower.

My mistake. I thought First Data still had a location in CPP.

Still doing some homework here, but I'm told this mystery office user is 250k sf +. No name yet.

Huh larger than both HDR and Kiewit. Interesting to see what company this may end up being.

The German Democratic Republic has a presence in Omaha? :shock: So that's where they really went after the Cold War....
