HyVee (90th and Center)

Postby Ben » Thu Jul 17, 2014 7:43 am

Not related to this development, but a quick note for the area: The HyVee directly to the south of this project is getting a major interior remodel. Adding a Starbucks, enlarging the floral department, general refresh elsewhere...

That is very exciting.. for such a prime location I wonder why they're just now remodeling it.

I'm sure the Hy-Vees have a rotation time table for their recent renovations. They are currently remodeling the Applewood location, and it heard that they are making a large Starbucks near the entrance. The Stony Brook store has major renovations in the making which I haven't seen started yet. I'm sure there is just so much capital they have to invest in the Omaha market...

Hope they add the full service liquor store like the other had done. They really need a better beer selection.

I don't see that happening there without a major renovation. Their deli area sits along 88th St, so no room on the east. Their Pharmacy dept with drive thru is on the west, which would be the only real expansion site. ThEy could reorient their drive thru Pharmacy which would open up that possibility, but their liquor area I only two aisles so it wouldn't open up the store for very much additional space... But I agree, that Hy-Vee and the 52 and Center one have poor liquor (read beer) selections.

Basically every Hy-Vee in the market is going to undergo some kind of renovation soon, to add the restaurants and what not. I think they want them all by next summer.

The 52 and center location has an apartment building they need to purchase before they are adding any additional SQ FT.

They have a copy of the blueprint/plans in the store, right by the entrance on a big board. Its an existing footprint, interior only, remodel. No square footage will be added. I did not specifically see if the beer/liquor sections were changing, but they certainly don't have enough square footage to make a "hyvee liquor store" like some of the bigger sites.

May be they can lease a bay that the new Strip Mall across the street and do a liquor only store like 108th and Fort did for several years before they added on to that building.

I spoke with Chad, the liquor store director, who has become something of a friend of mine, I spend enough money in his department. LOL. Anyway, the remodel should be wrapped up by Halloween. The original idea was to build out a new liquor store to the west, however the city told Hy-Vee that the store would have to foot the $1.5 million bill to relocate sewers if any building expansion were to be allowed. Hy-Vee won't spend that extra money, so the liquor department will stay put exactly where it is.
The big expansion, besides Starbuck's (so I guess there will be no Starbuck's going in across West Center Road in the new strip mall) will be a new health market. The interior will resemble all the new Hy-Vee remodels, with brushed concrete flooring and more color throughout. I look forward to all of this, as the store is 16 years old and has never been remodeled.

Looking at the Sewer maps, I am guessing they have already paid that fee once when the built the building. The map shows the sewer right through the middle of the current building. However I am guessing when they built the current building they re-loacted the line around the side of the building.

That said, I never thought about that, but its a huge drainage basin, draining through that pipe. Rainwater from as far away as 90th and Shamrock Road, Christ the King, Countryside Village, Westside High School and even 84th and Center, all run through that pipe! That would have to be one huge pipe!

I just finished up some plans to relocate a 72" DIA. pipe in LaVista for a warehouse expansion. I don't know what the final estimate came in at, but it would be interesting to see if it was close to that 1.5 M number.

When we were talking with Peony Park store personnel about their new gas station (finally!) they said the store will be getting a remodel at the same time. The gas station project seems to have slowed down and no sign of interior remodeling yet. On one hand it will be nice to get a "refreshed" store but on the other it's nice to have everything where I can find it without having to search!

I doubt they will put a Starbucks in the Peony Park Hy-Vee since there's the Starbucks on 72nd & Dodge and the other one going in on $72 & Pacific.

I saw three Starbucks on the same corner in central London a number of years ago. But the foot traffic is enormous there.

I'm certain that the Peony Park Hy-Vee will have ever Starbucks or Caribou Coffee go in there. It is a very large store.

So is this place done? They ripped out all the tile and did not replace it, and then polished the concrete. You can still see all the lines. Doesn't look very good.

I thought the Hy Vees were shifting to Caribou like the one on 156th and Maple?

Interesting. I like how a lot of the Heidi's have the terrazzo floors. Looks a little more classy.

Did Heidi's ceiling match the floor? If you know what I mean....

The floor is fine. The store remodeling was completed about a month ago. This is "my" Hy-Vee, as it is the closest one to my neighborhood and also on my path home from work. The remodeling took the store from a C+ to a B+. The organic/natural food section is a big improvement, and the interior looks nicer. But the store has no ability to expand in its current location, and this limits its potential. No separate Spirits department, for one thing. The salad bar is inferior to what is available in many other stores. And Hy-Vee's bakeries are wholly inferior to just about any other store I shop at.

I agree that I didn't like the look of the floor when it was completed. I have gotten used to it, but it would have been nice to have something more upscale. Like native, this is my Hy-Vee. I am surprised that they didn't do a more extensive renovation, even within the current footprint. I happened to take the kids (8 and 10)to the Applewood Hy-Vee two weeks ago and they were blown away. They only want to go there from now on. Granted, the 15,000 sq ft expansion helped greatly, but I was very impressed with their renovations.

I'm surprised. That store isn't all that old, right? I do love Hy-Vee, I enjoy going in their stores, and I admire how far that grocery store chain has grown & succeeded since I was a kid. However, I greatly dislike their typical store model with the slanted roof accents -- you know, the design that they've used all over. Thankfully, not all their stores have that look, imo. I like the Hy-Vees w/ the stair-stepped, flat roofs better. That slanted roof design is, I feel, insensitive & obtrusive, and doesn't feel "good" to me, when scanning the cityscape it sits within. I think part of it is I don't like seeing stucco used w/ sharply-angling roof lines that belong more with contemporary/modern architecture (designs from the 60's, usually covered with cedar siding).

They haven't built a store in Omaha with slanted roofs since 2003, 15 years ago!

Slanted Roofs:
180 and Q was 2003
90th and Center was 1999
108 and Fort was 1998
Peony Park was 1997

And, I am so glad, Brad. (lol) Thanks for pointing that out, btw. I hadn't really thought about when their last store w/ those sharp angles was built. They all seem so new to me, yet they have been around for awhile -- as you pointed out. And, they don't build a new one all that often. Are you sure the newer Stony Brook one doesn't have those sharp angles? I just passed that today... I could look on Google Maps (street view) to check it out, I guess. (Anyways, I can't stand that design. I hope that design phase is over for good.)
