I know it isn't technically part of Aksarben Center but does anyone know what happened to the development of the Venice Inn site?

Here is the latest Brad mentioned:
Some sort of work has started on the old Venice inn site. There's a big pile of dirt, construction equipment, and storm sewer pipe on the site .

$275K for that little space?

Is the real name of this location "Aksarben Gives the Taxpayers the Shafte"

The unnecessary terminal e is like lube.

Laughable and infuriating. What exactly does it take to NOT get TIF in this city?

Total project cost is about $3.2 million. The TIF request here is a lower % for the entire project than HDR FWIW.

Reading the TIF document, looks like the they've got Legend's Bar and Grill opening a location here, a Re/Max real estate office, and a 3rd TBD tenant space.

I wonder if you could get TIF for a home kitchen or bath remodel, if you're in a "blighted" area?

Warren Buffett lives in a Blighted Neighborhood. Do you think he is getting TIF for his new fence and security cameras?

Neediness doesn't appear to be a factor.

I think a mixed use development would be better for this area. I would think there would be plenty of demand given it's nearby a ton of shopping, Aksarben, and UNO.

Agreed. Omaha could use much more mixed-use developments, pretty much everywhere east of 72nd.

Was this plan scrapped?

With $3.1 million planned overhaul, Venice Inn site will become a 2nd Legends grill

I have been wondering the same thing. Every time I drive by there, nothing has changed. I know that Brad recently posted that there is a city ordinance that signage has to be removed or covered up. This is one site where I am ok that the sign is still there.

No, I was just being snarky. The City of Omaha gives very little info when a plan is submitted. For this New Building they just said "Retail & Restaurant." The Site Plan for 3902 Harney they just say 1 building. They had a Site Plan for where Tiger Tom's is, a month later we find out it was just for an outdoor seating area.

I've not been to Legends for years after my last 2 visits weren't that great. Used to be really good when the Cherry Hills location opened,
