Rockbrook Village (108th and Center)

Postby eomaha » Sun Sep 11, 2005 10:55 pm

My wife and I went to the Rockbrook art fair on Sunday... so I decided to take my camera to photograph some of the improvements which they've made to the 'lifestyle' center.  The new central plaza is well done, there is lots of landscaping throughout the center, almost every restaurant has inviting outside dining areas, and the facade updates are subtle but effective.

they really needed to make these improvements. The whole area was looking very dated.

Body Basics, a fitness equipment store, and Gloria's Framing Studio will relocate within the center.

It looks as if the last of the cosmetic "improvements" to Rockbrook have been put in place. Why 2 years ago they ruined the meadow along W. Center Rd. -- turning it from a small nature preserve into a large and featureless drainage ditch -- will forever escape me. All the trees were clear-cut. Now I suppose they have a chance to do something to repair that scarring. The new construction leaves me pretty on the fence, if not down right disappointed in the construction style.

I do look forward to visiting the new wine store. They have a large outdoor patio, complete with fireplace. Rockbrook also hosts some of Omaha's finest restaurants.

The ArtRoom is one of five new businesses at Rockbrook Village shopping center, offering classes and open studio time for youths and adults, as well as events like a Thursday “Paint and Pour” girls night out and a Friday night “Paint 'N Popcorn,” where kids can be dropped off for an evening of art while their parents enjoy a dinner out.

Besides the ArtRoom, Rockbrook's new tenants include: a Scooter's Coffee & Yogurt that's already open; a specialty spice shop opening in November or December; a Subway restaurant; and a spa opening in November that provides laser hair removal, tattoo removal and skin treatments.

At least two other new shops are in lease negotiations.


From the Same Article...

41st annual Rockbrook Village Art Fair

Barbara Soderlin
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER wrote:
What: A juried art show with more than 150 artists demonstrating and selling their work, including painting, photography, ceremics, jewelry and glass.

When: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday

Where: Rockbrook Village shopping center, 108th Street and West Center Road

Who: The fair was founded in 1971 by Gloria Mathews, the late owner of Gloria’s Custom Framing. It now is coordinated by Juanita Galvin, the store’s current owner. “It’s a wonderful mix of people and food and it’s great entertainment for the whole family,” Galvin said.

Parking: The fair attracts as many as 25,000 people, so parking gets “creative,” Galvin said. Spots are available in the surrounding neighborhood, and shuttles will run all day from the parking lots at Rockbrook Elementary School and the Westside Community Conference Center.


I will be there too!  My display will be in front of the Post and Nickel.

The bridge at 108th and Center strikes again!

Semitrailer fails to make bridge clearance

KETV wrote:OMAHA, Neb. —A semitrailer snarled traffic Wednesday afternoon after not making clearance on the pedestrian bridge near 108th Street and West Center Road.

Roy Facklam was traveling eastbound on West Center Road when he was trying to make a right-hand turn on 108th Street. The outcome: a large dent on the top of his trailer.

"It doesn't look low," said Facklam.




Here's the driver:

I see that some of those bridges have a warning light on them and truckers still hit them. On the TV report about the Rockbrook bridge, the trucker interviewed said they should put a warning light on the bridge. :D

It sounded like most drivers who are trying to get to south 108th St. are guided by their GPS programs to get off I-680 on West Center and turn south on 108th. As large as some of these trucking companies are, I am surprised they don't have 11'8" warnings along the way, or if the warnings is so small and visibly hidden that unless you stop and really study the map, you may just miss them. There are so many yellow warning lights on the roads theses days, I have to wonder if they no longer serve their purpose because they are often ignored.
