Good start.  Now, if we could just start bulldozing the rest of the suburbs like we did our downtown for the last 60 years and rebuild them like this, we might be on to something.

^This development has more than that, though.  Concepts like residential units above retail space is not something you usually see in new suburban developments, so this is a move in the right direction.  Also, three story buildings is not something we have seen much of in suburban development either, sadly.

Not all of us, just Big E. His heaven would be an acre of parking in front of a strip mall that has a painted cinder block facade and a take-and-bake pizza joint, pay check advance business, and a discount haircutter.  :;):

Oh yes I forgot about the residential above retail...  That isn't bad I will grant you but its only on the plan because otherwise they couldn't have retail at all... We will see if it gets built that way.

Don't misread my optimism.  This sucks compared to what we should have had with our mixed use areas (based on the work that Omaha by Design did).  Since things are what they are, I am trying to look for the positives.  I am concerned that if we do a half-rear mixed-use area and it flops because they left out critical parts (ie street connectivity and true walkability) then people will want good ol suburban development back.  I hope not.  As Big E pointed out it is light years better than the strip malls of the past.  Mixed use seems to have a wide definition in the city of Omaha though.  Just read the city council agendas.  It can mean Leytham and it can also mean an auto repair shop next to a retail store.  Well that narrows things down a bit.

The Sports Authority looks to be nearing completion.  Pet-smart has not started any construction.

There is also an strip mall under construction in front of target.
