Runza (50th & Center)

Postby Brad » Thu Sep 14, 2017 11:23 am

I thought we already had a thread for this, may be it was because we talked about it last time I was on Grow Omaha...

The Runza at 50th & Center is being town down and rebuilt. Been closed for a couple weeks now. Today they are putting up construction fence and one wall is already torn down and part of the parking lot torn up.

That one needed it. I was in it a few times when I worked near 24th & I80 and it was not a good condition building or layout.

I was in it last winter and wondering why they were kinda letting it go, but this explains it.

Are they completely tearing down the old one of just part of it?

Wonder if they will build the "new" design like is going up in Gretna. It is not done yet but looks different than anything I have seen anywhere. I was told by someone that works for the General that is on the Gretna project but is not working on THAT project that it is the first of a next generation Runza store.

On a Grow Omaha minute on KFAB they did say it would be the 2nd new design store in the state.

I have been told there will be one just like the one in Gretna going up in Elkhorn soon. Anyone have any insight on location?

This was my home Runza when I moved to town and the thing I will remember the most about it is that it had a smoking section until the ban was enacted in 2008 or whatever, which always made me laugh

105 & Pacific = Acres - 0.6864
50 & Center = Acres - 0.5121

Its going to be interesting to see what they do here. I thought the 105th and Pacific Runza was a tight fit, It will be interesting to see how the 50th fits in. I'm guessing they are going to shove the new building to one end of the lot.

Also wondering what standards they will be held to. Site is zoned GC (General Commercial)

Currently they have zero green space, GC requires 10% Green
Currently the are built right up to the property line, I believe they will need 15' of green space all the way around
The neighbors to the south and the west are zoned R4 Residential so I am guessing they will need landscaping to screen the neighbors.
I'm guessing currently they are not following any stormwater regulations, but they will be required to now. Dues to the size of the lot, I am guessing they handle that underground.
Finally, I believe now you can only have 1 driveway per parcel, currently they have 3.

Seems like an already tight lot is going to get even tighter.

All that said, I am happy to see them improving this Location. Use to light right down the street and its a great location!

Are they leaving a few feet of wall and calling it a remodel?

One thing I'll say about Runza (and I'm old enough to remember when it was called Runza Hut)..

Runza's, fries and burgers aside- they make some doggone good chicken strips too...

Ciao..LiO...Peace

This was originally a Runza Hut if I'm not mistaken, same with the 72nd & Farnam location.
