Apparently the "old" Golden Corral closed around Halloween in 2007.  I suspect the new one will be open by or before Halloween 2008.

The N. 72nd area might be more to Golden Corral's demographics.  You don't see many of them in Barrington Park or Regency.  I think they appeal to the Old Country Buffet set.  Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Sorensen Plaza adding businesses

http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_page=1 ... d=10471260

JOHN KEENAN WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER wrote:New businesses are coming to Sorensen Park Plaza, a shopping center at 72nd Street and Sorensen Parkway.

Golden Corral is building on one corner, and a Radio Shack is under construction in the "village shop" area, said developer Jim Otis.

The businesses are expected to open in late winter or early spring 2009.

Discount chain Big Lots also has signed a lease with the shopping center. It might locate in the former Linens 'N' Things space, Otis said.

Otis said the shopping center continues to meet with retailers about the village shops spaces at the front of the center and has a letter of intent from a retailer for vacant land east of the theater.

He declined to name the retailer.

I think its interesting that this project and the L Street project are both having problems filling their spaces in the town center concept they have in the middle of the lot on both projects.

The middle still appears to be empty except may be one business.

The Golden Corral is done, just not open yet.

I noticed the other day that Big Lots has their sign on the building where Linens N Things was. Also they have a sign up saying "Now Hiring"

Taco Bueno closed and KFC is going in, but in news everyone hasn't already known forever about a month ago they started pouring foundation for a new restaurant (which is stupid, as half of that creepy little ghost town with the radioshack and military recruitment is completely empty)

The initial post was worded weird for me, that's all. I was aware of the KFC, but didn't know what was meant by Taco Bell.

But you're right, pouring a whole new foundation is curious.

Is there another pad being poured besides the one for the Jiffy Lube that is being built to the north of Taco Bueno/KFC?

No, so that's probably it, not a restaurant at all. Mystery solved!

According to Jeff Beals on the Grow Omaha Min, Panda Express and Chick-fil-a are coming to Sorensen Park Plaza.  Both between Applebee's and Burger king.

So they are planning to have a chick-fil-a on north 72nd second street and 74th and Dodge. And a Panda Express on 72nd and dodge and north 72nd street? Is that close together for those companies?

The Ckick-fil-a has been on the kimko realty site for Sorenson for many months already.

I think they are far enough apart.  Target has stores in both areas.  BK the same.

They started moving dirt on the lot to the north and adjacent to Applebee's.  but I think it is going to be a Taco Bell. On the kimco site across the street from this and adjacent to BK was suppose to be a chic-file-a. But nothing has happened there yet


http://www.omaha.com/article/20130313/M ... 19721/1733

But then again according to this map it might be Panda Express

1. The building permits for the lot North of Applebee's (6228 N 72nd) calls for a Panda Express.

2. Chick-fil-a owns the lot North of that at 6310 N 72nd.
'
3. There is permit activity for the lot South of Applebee's at 6110 N 72nd, but it only has the attorney's name.

Assuming the OWH article is correct, 6110 N. 72nd is at Nebraska Ave., where the proposed Taco Bell would be.

I'm not sure of the population density of that area, but that is a lot of fast food places to pick from once Panda and Chick-Fil-A open as well.  Especially If you add the Arby's and McDonald's just minutes to the South at Benson Park.

Traffic coming south on 72nd from I-680 drive right by that row. There's also a big hospital practically across the street. I'm sure people who are up there all the time visiting a family member appreciate restaurant options close by. Also, who wants to eat at Golden Corral? Ew.

Compared to other parts of the city I would say that even with these additions that area still is closer to being underserved than saturdated.  I lived for 5 years of 78th and Crown Point.  There's plenty of rooftops to support these places.  They need more quick casual and casual dining going forward on top of these.  I'd say South 72nd is closer to be saturated, and we all saw the West Center is with the places that went in then closed.  There's still room for more on N 72nd IMO.

Panda Express looks like it is about done... It has gone really slow.  

Noticed yesterday the lot to the north of Golden Corral was dug up and the sign says Taco Bell

Now trying to figure out why Chic Fil A hasn't done anything. It is still listed on the kimco management page and was up there before Panda Express

Chick Fil A isn't doing anything because the company collectively hates my guts and they know a Chick Fil A over there would be hard for me to resist..  :mrgreen:

There is no building permits for the lot (6026 N. 72nd) South of Taco Bell (6110 N. 72nd).   Chik-Fil-A (6310 N. 72nd) had no permits listed yet either.
