Ever the optimist.

I really think DT is just fine. A/V is pretty much tapped out after HDR(who was never actually DT) and the last corner next to PacLife. The prices in Aksarben are more expensive than DT as well, that is probably the premier office location in the city right now. But on the other end DT is still adding residents and is still the main job center in the city. It is certainly decentralized, but there is no evidence that if A/V never materialized that BCBS and Green Plains and DLR and Gordman's would have moved DT and not to generic office park in West O.

If DT continues to become weaker office wise I think it will offer more options for housing developers to rehab properties and to build new as land costs drop. It is a cycle and it will certainly rebound from a trough that seems to be happening in the office market now.

I personally love all the options that we have now. I can do something different every weekend in a different area of Omaha east of 72nd and have an entirely different experience each different time. Too each their own though.

There's no way in heck all these big developments aren't impacting downtown negatively in one way or another. Absolutely they're good for the overall health of the metro I can't argue that and maybe down the road with all that health downtown gets the attention it deserves.

Not suggesting everything is perfect. DTO officially added 300K SF in vacant office space last quarter. That is a big hit. There is still investment happening though, over $150 million for Capitol District. $50 million in NDT, new hotels on the west side of DT. Almost $50 million in rehab projects on the south end of DT. A quarter billion in construction during a slump for DT is pretty nice.

Yes HDR not working DT stinks and losing ConAgra jobs and Gavilon not performing well hurts no doubt, but the apartments are still being rented at a high rate and are still being built at a consistent rate. There is a silver lining around the rough year DT has had in 2016.

By the way, not saying the Baird Holm building rumor is wrong, but I have heard from several sources that Pacific Life would like to use that space for future expansion. Whether that includes having the building to themselves or joining with another company, I am unsure.


What I understood my sources at PL to say is that we would be leasing "some" space in the new building and that it would break ground in April 2017. It has been several months though since I have heard anything and things can change.
My son got a 27 on his ACT. No this score is not as high as what Jeff's son achieved. But one has to remember the paternal gene-pool my son has to overcome. On a PGPAB [Paternal Gene-Pool Adjusted Basis], my son's score is a 37 and Jeff's son's PGPAB ACT score is 19.

I thought there was an empty bay to the west of the Omaha Tap House. There used to be a hair salon there but they moved out over a year ago.

Yes, the old Ashley Lynn's bay. Been open since they switched to Palm Beach Tan and closed their hair salons +/-4 years ago

I just found out that Baird Holm has now decided NOT to go to the planned 4-to-5-story building in AkSarBen despite signing a letter of intent. Apparently, the costs were way to high. The company has now decided to stay downtown. It is undetermined whether they will remain in the Woodmen permanently or find a different downtown office. Either way, I think this is positive news for downtown. Ak Village has plenty of other prospective tenants.

I'd have to check again but I think A/V is the most expensive space in the city right now.

If true, Madjack's info is good news for DT. One can hope that they were enticed to go into the Lanoha Tower at a lower price, making that project more of a possibility. Or maybe they'll go into the Tetrad/former Civic site project. There still is some prestige left if they choose to stay in the Woodman. I think they (Baird Holm McEachen) was one of the original tenants in the Woodman.

They currently have signage on the podium of the building. I don't know their history there though.

The building opened in 1969. I know they've been in the Woodmen at least since the early 1970s..... I remember visiting one of my friend's father's office on the 16th floor. That was pretty cool, although it shows my age.

Checked this morning and the Midtown segment, which includes A/V, is over $30 a SF for Class A right now. The only submarket with higher rents is Regency.

Don't know if this has been mentioned, but I noticed a liquor license is being considered for the last empty bay in the Pacific Life building for Gold Mountain Restaurant (Chinese). Looks like there is a location near 156th and Maple: http://www.newgoldmountain.com/home.html

States that the new restaurant will have appox 80-100 seats and optional patio seating. 2,656 sq ft.

Expected to be open by late January 2017.

Looks like space in the Woodman Tower goes for $19.50/SF/YR. Quite a difference, without considering remodel expenses.

$10 more per square foot for AV than one of the city's most iconic towers? We've created a monster.

Lower prices Downtown might be what it takes for people to give it a second look. Although you can assume new buildings downtown will probably be in the $30 sf/yr range too, if not higher.

According to my source, the higher rent at Ak Village was only part of the problem for Baird Holm. Apparently the build-out costs were looking to be much higher than anticipated. My source said nothing about going to the future Tetrad Project or proposed Lanoha Tower. The source just said they will stay in the Woodmen for the time being while still exploring "other downtown options." The source made it sound like it has been difficult getting all the partners (a bunch of lawyers) to agree on anything when it comes to office space. I suppose if they are paralyzed with indecision, they just might stay in the Woodmen as a compromise.

It was closed all last week. I suspect they opened it since there was a concert at the Baxter and the Holiday Market was going on.

Per Roseann Moring and Marcella Mercer World-Herald staff writers:

Jay Noddle, the developer of Aksarben Village, said he would also like to see an entertainment district around the site of the under-construction HDR tower in Aksarben.


Noddle also hopes that the idea could eventually be applied elsewhere in the area. He said he would like to see the council eventually expand the ordinance so that entertainment districts could be created in areas not near arenas, such as a mixed-use development he has planned on 500 acres of undeveloped land west of historic Boys Town.
