Your welcome! I figured that piece of info would be informative.

I would be super jealous over this project if it had one thing...APARTMENTS OR OFFICE SPACE ABOVE THE STREET RETAIL (I,J,K,L) PORTION OF THE PROJECT! Overall, it's a great suburban project though. Congrats Omaha!

I wonder what happens to these people and their trailers?

On the Grow Omaha radio show this moring, guest David Brown, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce stated that basically proposed development metro wide is predicated on whether there is a healthy downtown..That developments like the ones along West Dodge would most likely NOT be planned or possible, if Omaha did not have a healthy, growing and ever vibrant DT and urban core..

A very wise assessment indeed..

..Ciao..LiO....Peace

Good catch, Cowboy.

I'd definitely like to use the new fitness center.

Did anyone see the lines P & Q: "Detention Center"? I saw that before I realized they were WATER detention centers. For a minute I was thinking "Who the heck are they trying to attract out here?" :)

BTW, how many people do you suppose will use that walkway over Dodge? (if that's in fact what it is) I've watched people out there drive from Best Buy from Kona.

Yeah, those people probably are going to shake their heads at a quarter million plus 1,000 sq foot condo, whether it's downtown or within a short drive of Best Buy or Kona Grill.

And not to upset anyone or suggest any slant towards one lifestyle versus another (I just like playing devil's advocate for some reason)... for those so drawn to them, there is suddenly the possibility of living on the 9th floor and being within walking distance of a Wild Oats. I'm sure it will appeal to someone.

Hopefully downtown will get a nice grocery store in the relatively near future.

The park owners never told anyone who lives there. So It will most likely be a 30 day eviction notice[/quote]

So speaking of West Dodge development, I was driving around that area today, and noticed that on this road that goes Northwest of the Infinity dealership, there is street parking linning it as well as some very nice, pedestrian friendly, brick intersections. Could this be the footing for West Dodge Station?

The trailer park on the west is leased area, the trailer owners don't own the land the trailer sits on, however the trailer park on the east actually contains platted lots which can be individually sold, so the chances of the other park gowing away are not nearly as good.

Yes, I believe that is for West Dodge Station.

That is a good question? I thought the footbridge over Dodge was a great Idea. It would make Village Pointe and Tribedo Lifestyle Mall (retail area) appear as one shopping area, giving more stores to chose from. Of course some people will be lazy and drive from one end to other end of the shopping center or across the street to get to the next store. Half the fun of shopping is walking!

I like the layout of Tribedo. The Tribedo Lifestyle Mall should have the feeling of an upper-class small town main street. To me that is friendly shopping.

Does anyone else think the name of this is at least somewhat humerous? Much like North Downtown is a direct ripoff of LoDo (Lower Downton, Denver), Tribedo (Triangle Below Dodge) is an obvious rip off of Tribeco (Triangle Below Canal, New York).

Names have always been stolen from NYC and other large cities. Look at the Empire State Building in DTO, or the new Wall Street Tower.

Or how about Wilshire Blvd and Wall Street roads where the defense contractors are in Bellevue.

I don't think that Tribedo and North Downtown have a good ring to it, so I'm not a fan of the names, but I don't mind "borrowing" terms from larger areas.

How about calling the North Downtown area Picadilly Circus? :-)

I work with a guy who lives in this trailer park. He told me that they have to be moved out by sometime in early September (I forgot the exact day....the 9th?). He apparently plans on moving to 100th and Fort. I think he said something about another trailer park being there, but according to Google Earth there isn't.

Its all still moving quite a bit and the latest plans dont really look like what is shown in this post... There is quite a bit of work left on this one... May make it to Planning Board this month though but I'd expect more delays.

I'll say. It looks like another Village Pointe now. I liked the first plan better.

No, according to that the towers (10 stories residential plus penthouses-11?) are located at T and U. A 3 story parking structure is at V. Also a hotel will be at J, which I would gess would be a good 5-6 stories. So this is still a good project, but I liked the original plan better.

Hmmm, I'm indifferent about the new plan over the old one, but still too much parking.

It looks like it could also be 100th and Irvington, I dunno, the kid (obviously) isn't the brightest crayon in the box.

Resignation is settling like dust on the 45-plus-year-old Regency Mobile Home Park northeast of 180th Street and West Dodge Road.

"What's gonna happen is we're definitely going to get pushed out of here," resident Bob Lancaster said. "That's inevitable."


I shall reserve comment.

I saw the article “Trailers in way of progress” in today Omaha World Herald
http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_pg=1636&u_sid=2207605

I hope they are given enough time to find a new place to live.

Agreeing with loyalomahan above, I like the old plans over the new layout. What happen to the Pedestrian Bridge over Dodge, connecting Tribedo to Village Pointe? It would be nice walking connecting between the two life style malls.

Old layout

Yeah I agree as well, the old layout looked much more like a city street passing through. Now, it just looks like a drive through a big parking lot.

I knew several kids in that neighborhood growing up. I assume that they have all moved away by now. But it is still sad to see it go. But if has to go at least what will replace it will be better than a car dealer's lot.

couldnt find an article, but i thought i remembered something to the extent that an intersection from this development with 168th would be too close to dodge st intersection thus requiring a bridge over the UP tracks, the buyout of some trailers just north of the tracks, and a new intersection. im guessing the developer didnt want to do all that and that is why the land is for sale.

also from that sale link was yet another site plan

There was a story a few months ago about an illegal landfill found on the site, I think they are still cleaning it up.

Nothing official that I'm aware of.  I'm sure he's just trying to wait it out but I'd guess the plan changes again before something gets going.

Driving by 168 and Dodge, I've noticed a lot of work being done planing the ground and surveying. Have they decided to go ahead with development here?
