In store for midtown Omaha’s 42nd and Leavenworth Streets: a major makeover.

The shift would wipe out an art deco-style auto shop that’s been a fixture on the intersection’s northwest corner for five decades. A replacement is to rise on a diagonal corner.

That opens the way for the University of Nebraska Medical Center to create a “grand” southern entrance to its expanding campus, most likely a green space with some identifying flair.

So their grand entrance is a yard with a sign? :what:

At a meeting with a neighborhood assn. last night a UNMC representative said the area around Saddle Creek Rd west of UNMC will be redeveloped into taxable mixed-use buildings. This would include the Omaha Steel property and would be a development similar to Midtown Crossing. Saddle Creek Road won't be changed but they hope to solve the flooding issues at Dodge and Saddle Creek. A private developer will be sought.

They also hoped to have that land cleaned up by December.

UNMC awarded $19.8 million to develop national training center for fighting Ebola, other infectious diseases

Joseph Morton / World-Herald Bureau wrote:The University of Nebraska Medical Center announced Friday that it has been awarded $19.8 million in federal funds to develop a new training, simulation and quarantine center.

“This is both a tremendous opportunity and responsibility, and I know our medical center will rise to the challenge,” UNMC Chancellor Jeffrey Gold said Friday in a press release.

The new training center will have its own floor in UNMC’s already-planned $102 million Global Center for Advanced Interprofessional Learning — a 183,742-square-foot facility that will be at the southeast corner of 42nd and Emile Streets. Construction on the overall facility is set to begin soon and be completed by September 2018.

UNMC is tearing down the old Kiewit Construction site. They already own the parking to its north. Anyone know what they are up to here?

I remember seeing something in past planning board notes about it being a office building for the regents. You wouldn't think they'd need that much space though...

I'm sure we reported this already, but I just talked to Mary Barrett of Barleycorn's and she has said that the Med Center was getting call from all over inquiring about Charlie Graham's, but they will keep the facade and turn it into a clinic. They also own the plot across the street that got torn down after the accident and will keep it a park.

I think RFPs went out and only these three showed interest. I don't think we have anything in concrete yet.

I talked with Dr Debehnke today and he said the Chihuly exhibit should be arriving next week. He was able to go to visit Chihuly's Museum to keep abreast of its development. He said that Chihuly is really excited about this project since he has always wanted to build a church.

I forgot to mention that in my conversation with Dr Debehnke the other day I asked about the J.P.Lord and Munroe-Meyer Institute. JP Lord has been relocated and the Munroe-Meyer is so out of date, so he mentioned a 550 room building which I have been trying to remember what he then said. I asked about the old Midtown bank building and that still is a no go, I asked about buying the land from Don & Millie's and he said they have not considered that as a viable option....

So the next 550 room Hotel for Nebraska Medicine looks like a replacement for the Munroe-Meyer lot.

Is that a typo or a misunderstanding? Do they mean 550 rooms in total around the Med Center area? A single hotel that size would almost be double the downtown Hilton.

I guess I didn't realize the Hilton was 600 rooms. Anyhow, I asked the journalist of the article about the 550 rooms and he wrote:

When the 42nd and Dodge site was dropped, the Med Center people said they still want a hotel [sic] of that size near the medical complex but didn't have a location yet. So there isn't a place selected, just the expressed need for such a hotel.

The Hilton was originally 450 rooms until they expanded it into The Great Wall of Hilton, so you weren't completely wrong.

I wonder if the hotel will go across Saddle Creek if they are going to develop all that land. I would think they would keep the Munroe-Meyer space for a medical/healthcare/medical school building.

As of about 10 days ago, I was told no decision on location has been made. The land that JP is on wont be vacated for over a year, the MMI even longer, and they really want the hotel to be started before then. The JP and MMI land is being considered mostly for clinical purposes (patient care/research). I wouldnt rule out the NW corner of this property however... Also locations are 42/Leavenworth, east of the north doctors building and the most likely, west side of saddle creek.

I believe it's still in the running although I first heard of this option a few months ago. The source was one of UNMC's vice chancellors. That person did say other sites were under consideration but that a lot of key people wanted this site because of the incredible proximity to the new cancer center. The big concern with this site is that it is incredibly tight on space and they would have to deal with a dramatic grade change.

My wife and I just bought a house on Farnam that backs up to this space, so I'm quite invested in what's going up there!

It is indeed a steep drop from the northwest corner of the property to the part that fronts Saddle Creek. Do you think it's feasible at all to eliminate the grade change as part of the terraforming currently underway? Maybe that's too expensive or not even possible.

I'm pulling for mixed-use all the way.

The emergency department will be getting an expansion:

Nebraska Medicine to expand med center's emergency department
Julie Anderson / World-Herald staff writer wrote:Nebraska Medicine announced plans Wednesday to begin an expansion in January of the Nebraska Medical Center’s emergency department.
The expansion is intended to accommodate an anticipated increase in patient volume, officials said. The current emergency department, which opened in late 2005, was built to handle about 60,000 patients a year. The department is expected to surpass that number by the end of 2016, and an analysis projects it can expect an additional 4,000 to 10,000 annual patient visits in the future. The expansion will provide space to allow staff to manage an additional 10,000 patients a year.
