Let's see here ... the Powers That Be want Joe and Jo Taxpayer to subsidize private business development?

What's wrong with this picture?

How about some development company coming in and doing one of those oh-so-trendy "Mixed Use" developments on that tract at their expense?

Agreed. There are good reasons why there are so many vacancies in the Brentwood area. New buildings won't change that.

So AK village and MTC only built because those areas were smoking hot before hand?

Here is the vision for the area. Incredibly ambitious. I just don't know if anything close to this is possible in the suburbs unless it was near some major mass transit.

Holy cow.

Ambitious is understating it. But then again, compared to what exists there now, you really wouldn't need that much ambition to improve it anyway...

I have to agree with Jacob, it looks nice, but try to sell that to an investor! Neither 84th St nor Giles would bring much random traffic it would need. Maybe Papillion's 84th and 370 could pull that off, but sorry to say! not La Vista.

There are actually several Chicago suburbs with downtowns just like that, many of them without mass transit access. Then again, they are a lot bigger, but who knows.

^which suburbs are you thinking of? I feel like Chicago area suburbs with a dense downtown at least have solid Pace Bus service. Most have Metra service as well.

I was surprised to see that a family video and pizza place has open in the old Blockbuster video location at 84th and Giles.

Yeah i noticed that too a few weeks ago. Family Video seems to be doing ok and they are adding the Marco's Pizza to most of their locations. I know I mentioned it on here in another thread but their intent is to eventually allow people to order a movie and pizza and have them both delivered. I think that is a great idea.

I was going to mention that also a few weeks ago, I drove by and saw an 'opening soon' sign, so I pulled in to see what was going on and found this out, but then shrugged my shoulders and immediately forgot about them.. :shrug:

Talked to one of the guys from the bar across the parking lot, he said its been there about 6 weeks. When I worked at that bar, blockbuster was still open and it was always packed.

The only time I would go to that of any blockbuster would be to buy a DVD after they trimmed back their supply of new releases. You could always find good bargains there. I can't think of the lady time I actually rented a movie...

La Vista takes a step toward acquiring shabby 84th Street strip mall


Emily Nohr: World-Herald staff writer wrote:Last week, the La Vista City Council agreed to hire a firm to negotiate the acquisition of buildings and relocation of businesses remaining in the Brentwood Crossing property along 84th Street between Harrison Street and Giles Road.

In addition to acquiring the run-down development, the city says it will look to relocate five businesses remaining in the strip mall to allow for demolition.

La Vista considers spending big on high-profile development projects

Emily Nohr: World-Herald staff writer wrote:Earlier this year the city hired a company to negotiate acquiring buildings and relocating businesses remaining in the area. The city has talked about seizing the property through eminent domain, but called that a last resort.

The overall plan, Vision 84, calls for transforming the shopping center and the neighboring city golf course into a downtown and large civic park.

L.V. Is emerging as a premier suburb add the multisports complex and Costco to their list too. It's nice to see all this before Papillion starts to take over.

Papillion has dominated the first half of this decade.... The whole reason the LaVista "Golden Mile" is dead is because almost everything moved to Papillion.

La Vista's "Golden Mile"

Postby Omaha Cowboy » Fri Apr 22, 2016 10:29 pm

This will be fantastic..

From the W-H-

The City of La Vista is about to get a heart.
A $175 million-plus “City Centre” project is to bring apartments, restaurants, retailers, offices and a grocer to the 84th Street corridor that was left with a gaping commercial hole when Walmart sparked an exodus a decade ago.
Led by developer City Ventures, the largely private 30-acre initiative is to rise on the once-booming Brentwood Crossing property in tandem with the first phase of a civic park long-envisioned on La Vista’s golf course.
The two pieces are to be linked by a proposed amphitheater and walking trail leading from the public park into the mixed-use campus.

This will be fantastic for LaVista. It's good that they were able to negotiate a purchase of the old Wal-Mart strip mall versus seizing the property through eminent domain. I wish that they would have passed on the fancy spelling of center though.

Agreed! I also hope this prompts redevelopment of Brentwood Square. I used to work at the Baker's there and it's kind of sad to see it so run down now.

I'm glad it is all transforming into something better down there. Wow, that development looks nice.

I still don't understand why that area all went downhill. Is it because of all the new shopping on 72nd, I'm figuring? There was something about that Brentwood Square I liked. Maybe I was always simply fond of it's main, squarish, brick sign, and the way "Square" changed directions from "Brentwood." It was a nice look (back in the day).
"Crossroads Village" down the street from "Aksarben Village?" Does "Crossroads" have any meaning to people 20 and under? "Dodge At 72nd" is a type name I like better, drawing from the excitement of the iconic, special Omaha intersection. My $.02.

It was a combination of factors. When Super Target opened in Papillion it affected the Baker's a little. Years later when the Walmart Super Center and the Fareway opened along 72nd it had a devastating effect, because of direct competition and because people were no longer being drawn to the area by the Walmart that had been at Brentwood Crossing. Once the Baker's closed the rest of the shopping center went downhill.

Gotcha. I figured that new shopping on 72nd had to have plaid a huge role. Kinda sad... But, things always change. Plus, there is so much new housing down there now, people naturally want nicer, newer places to shop. Thanks for explaining the details...

That looks amazing....lets hope that it eventually looks like that. The thing is going to be patience. Just like AV and the development on the CB side of the river, it is going to take 10-15 years to fill out.

Wow! City Ventures started negotiations 18 months ago and they plan on starting construction beginning this fall. Gee whiz, I thought projects with this magnitude, similar to Crossroads Village, took a decade or more to get started.
