Grow Omaha Show discussion

Postby eomaha » Sat May 28, 2005 9:13 am

Don't miss the Grow Omaha Show on 1290 KKAR radio each Saturday at 8am. Hosted by Jeff Beals and Trenton Magid of Coldwell Banker Commercial World Group, the show focuses on real estate and economic development in the Omaha metro.

Click here for KKAR streamed live

I missed the first half hour of todays (5/18) show. Did we establish whether the Gap store would be the two story structure with second floor office space? Or that it would be a second building? There was an exchange at the end which would suggest there was some confusion even with the Grow Omaha show as to what the situation was (a RED rep from Scottsdale suggested there were two separate buildings).

And once again, what we've talked about here was mentioned again... the possible re-configuration of the food court area at Westroads to give a prospective Cheesecake Factory visibility to Dodge. Entirely rumor that is.

Did I miss any revelations in the first half hour?

One of the biggest revelations in the first half of the show was the officially announced June 1st ground-breaking of the Riverfront Place development DT (this backs up what new forumer OmahaChef posted earlier this morning)..So that is a definite go..(There were several references that the development will be 'a wonderful addition to the Downtown Omaha skyline'..

The 4 Gap stores will occupy a 20,000 ft square space..The 2 story office/retail space you are referencing is at a seperate VP location and is also 20,000 SQ FT (retail on the lower level and office on the upper..Just as the W-H story indicated)..Both 20,000 SQ FT and separate from one another..

..Cao..LiO....Peace

Obviously one of these buildings (I assume the Gap) will occupy the open spot on 'main street'. Where will the second building sit? (from this Bacon guy with RED it is sounded as if it would be across one of the perimeter streets).

Yes the Gap will be on the Main Street area where the GameStop store etc is..I'm a little fuzzy as well about the 2 story office and retail space.. But like you, believe it will be on one of the perimeter streets (it would pretty much have to be)..

You probably heard that the Scralet and Cream Letter sports bar will be in the area just southwest of Mimi's Cafe..

I assumed Scarlet & Cream would be in the remaining outparcel (which was graded some time ago) on the southwest corner behind the theatre.

'This week on GROW OMAHA:

As part of a two-state metropolitan area, Omaha residents must keep up with happenings on the Iowa side of the Missouri River. That's why Grow Omaha turns its sights to the east this week to focus on growth and development in Council Bluffs.

A community of more than 58,000 people, Council Bluffs, Iowa is experiencing a great deal of development activity. Bass Pro Shops is building a $20 million tourist attraction at the junction of Interstates 80 and 29. Bluffs Run Casino is converting to a Horseshoe Casino and adding on to the existing building. A hotel and indoor water park are planned nearby. Federal Express is constructing a $6.5 million distribution center. We'll learn about these projects and much more on this week's episode of Grow Omaha.

Our guest will be Bob Mundt, President & CEO of the Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce. Before coming to Council Bluffs in 1992, Bob held leadership positions at chambers of commerce in Brookings, SD and Sioux City, IA. He holds a Master of Arts degree in Management & Organizational Development from Bellevue University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Marketing & Public Relations from the University of Northern Iowa.'..

I can't tell you how cool I think it is that Omaha has a talk radio show that exclusively discusses development. It's a like a dream come true for us city/development geeks.

In Des Moines we have perodic guests that come on our talk radio stations to discuss the topic every now and then, but that's far from a dedicated weekly show.

My only complaint with it is it's so early and when I am up I always forget to listen. If they would add rss2 enclosures to their archieves so I could get it as a podcast (ala NPR)and listen to it whenever then we would be set.

'This week on GROW OMAHA:

Much has happened in Omaha since our last discussion with David Brown, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce. Big projects have been announced, and the Nebraska Unicameral passed landmark legislation, improving the state's business incentives. Listen to Grow Omaha this week to hear about the current state of Omaha's growth and development with Omaha's chief economic developer.

Before coming to Omaha, David Brown was head of the Greenville, South Carolina chamber. Before that he worked in the economic development field in Indiana. David graduated from Dartmouth with a degree in geography.'..

'This week on GROW OMAHA:

In Part I, we will discuss a project that would change of face of Midtown Omaha. Mutual of Omaha has teamed up with ECI Investment Advisors, Inc. to explore the redevelopment of Mutual's eight-acre property east of its headquarters at 33rd and Dodge Street. Options include creating a mixed-use, urban neighborhood encompassing residential units, commercial establishments and enhanced green space. Our guests will be John McClellan, Mutual of Omaha's Senior Vice President-Administration and Keith Bawolek, Executive Vice President of Chicago-based ECI. This promises to be a most interesting discussion about a very exciting project!

PART II of this week's show will allow us to look back and enjoy hearing how Omaha's new Riverfront development came into being. It will also give us the opportunity to find out where Omaha's future growth and development might be heading. Our guest will be Dennis Wilson, Operations Manager for HGM Associates. Denny was Omaha's City Design Engineer and served as the Director of Economic Development for Mayor Hal Daub. In that capacity, he played a major role in downtown Omaha's $2 billion growth boom. Be sure to tune in and get his unique perspective on Omaha's development!'..

This week on GROW OMAHA:

A number of development projects are underway in Omaha and many more are in the planning stages. No major project can ever come to life in this community without the blessing of the Omaha City Council; local government plays a huge role in our community's economic progress. That's why we have invited City Councilmen Dan Welch and Jim Vokal to be our guests this weekend on Grow Omaha.

Dan Welch is the newly elected president of the Omaha City Council and is in his second term representing District 5. An attorney, he is a partner in the Welch Law Firm, P.C. He holds a law degree from Creighton University and an undergraduate degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Jim Vokal is in his second term representing District 3. He is currently serving as the City Council's vice president after spending the previous two years as president. Outside of politics, Jim is a vice president and licensed real estate agent at Coldwell Banker Commercial World Group. He holds a baccalaureate degree from Creighton University.'..

Sorry for the lateness of this post (just as the shows starts);

From my email:

'This week on GROW OMAHA:

If a city is going to grow and prosper, it must have a "fun factor". Entertainment and recreation are important ingredients in economic development. That's why we have invited Larry Richling to join us for Part I of Grow Omaha this weekend. Larry is the owner of Keystone Group, a hospitality and entertainment company based in Omaha. Keystone owns 10 businesses, including the River City Star, River City Yacht Club, Muddy Mo's Watering Hole, Wheels 4 Fun and the Hollywood Diner. Be sure to tune in for a fun and entertaining discussion about some of Omaha's most unique business concepts!

In Part II of this week's show we will discuss the impact of communications technology on Omaha's growth and development. We've invited two experts from Cox Communications. Hyman Sukiennik is Vice President for Cox Business Serivces, and Joe Seda is Vice President for Network Operations for Cox Communications. We will also take a little time to discuss the annual Cox Classic Golf tournament to be held at Omaha's Champions Run Country Club in August.'..

'This week on GROW OMAHA:

An unfavorable tax climate is one of the quickest and easiest ways to scare away new business investment. Given the competitive economic-development environment in which today's cities and states compete, local leaders need to do all they can to limit tax burdens. To discuss "Taxes & Omaha's Economy" on this week's show, we've invited an expert. Doug Kagan has been the chairman of Nebraska Taxpayers for Freedom since 1982. An avid tax fighter, Kagan has walked neighborhoods, written articles and debated on the radio. He is Omaha's foremost anti-tax voice. Be sure to tune in this week to hear Kagan's argument for reducing Omahans' tax burdens.

In Part II of this week's show, we'll learn about growth and development in Nebraska's capital city. Located only 50 miles southeast of downtown Omaha, Lincoln plays a significant role in Omaha's economic life. With 235,000 residents, Lincoln is the second largest city in Nebraska and is home to the University of Nebraska. Be sure to tune in this weekend to hear all about Lincoln's growth and development.

Our guest will be Lincoln City Councilwoman Robin Eschliman, who was just elected earlier this year. Though she is new to politics, Eschliman has a great deal of knowledge about Lincoln's growth and development, because she has worked in commercial real estate in the capital city since 1987. She has a business degree from Southeast Community College and holds the prestigious Certified Commercial Investment Member designation.'..

Learn about the tax climate in relation to Omaha's economic growth and get insights on our neighbor 50 miles west on I-80..Should be a winner!..

:lol: ..

To give you some feedback..One part of the Lincoln discussion with Lincoln City Council woman Robin Eschilman (during the 2nd half of the show), was the question posed by Jeff Beals regarding the possiblility of Omaha-Lincoln becoming one consolidated metro (which I happen to believe is about 10 years down the line)..Ms Eschilman was all for it..In fact, she questioned why it hasen't happened already (obviously she is not quite up to date with US Census commuting data which tracks the % of population from one county into the nearest larger metro for the purpose of work..We are still 5-7% off the % that the US Census would then deem appropriate to add Lincoln's MSA into Omaha's for one combined Omaha-Lincoln CMSA..But we're getting closer every year :) )..

There was also some interesting feedback from her regarding the % of Lincoln population that is 'anti-growth' which she places at between 40-50% and progressive 'pro-growth' she estimates is between 50-60%..And both factions seem to be at constant battle with one another..

Additionally, she did say (about a possible combined Omaha-Lincoln CMSA) that Omaha being the larger of the two cities, must take the initiative first (seemingly) to get things/this done..On one level I do agree with her on this..But also I disagree at the same time as I believe it will take equal harmony and cooperation from both to ultimately make it work economically for both cities..Some of what she was saying in this regard was a little fuzzy or puzzling to me..But I got the general gist of what she ment..

One last thing she stated that seemed to throw the hosts completely off (also yours truly) was some recent article she stated she saw in the Lincoln Journal-Star that ranked Nebraska's economy 50th out of all 50 states..This revelation from Ms. Eschilman brought a suprised 'really' and 'how so?' from both Jeff Beals and Trenton Magid..Which I believe both question the validity of such a statistic (as do I)..This validity question was further compounded by her statement that in the same LJS article, Iowa was ranked #1!..

All this aside, it was yet another good and informative show..

Sadly enough she speaks the truth. The source of said statistic was the US Bureau of Economic Analysis. Nebraska had the worst economic growth percentage of all 50 states. F'ing NORTH DAKOTA did better. :roll:

LJS wrote:The bureau showed that Nebraska's gross state product — a measure of the value of goods and services produced — grew from a little less than $60.7 billion in 2003 to a little more than $61 billion in 2004, an increase of 0.9 percent. That was the lowest among all the states and well below the national average of 4.2 percent.

That paltry growth came despite record farm income in the state of nearly $4 billion in 2004.

Nebraska's neighbors fared much better, with growth rates ranging from 2.3 percent in Missouri to 8.1 percent in Iowa. Iowa's growth rate was tops in the nation, according to the bureau, an agency of the Department of Commerce.

Thanks for posting the link..

From the LJS piece, Creighton U economist Ernie Goss contributed this:

'Goss, though, cautioned about putting too much stock in one year's economic performance. According to the report, Nebraska's growth was nearly 3 percent in 2002 and more than 5 percent in 2003. From 2000-2004, Goss said, the state ranked 32nd nationally in economic growth.'..

The sky is indeed NOT falling..But certainly could be much better..

People tend to freak out over an annual report without looking at the big picture sometimes..Of course, information like this should not be taken lightly..Just given a little perspective..Which Ms. Eschilman did not deliver when she mentioned this on the show..Thus it took me (and the hosts IMO) by suprise..

'This week on GROW OMAHA:

In Part I of this week's show, we'll talk about growth and development in Cass County. Located in the southern part of the Omaha Metropolitan Statistical Area, Cass County is expected to see a great deal of growth in the coming years as Omaha's development moves in that direction. Our guests will be Doug Duey, President of the Cass County Bank, and John Winkler, who serves both as the Plattsmouth City Administrator and Executive Director of the Cass County Economic Development Council.

The title for Part II of this week's show is "Freeze: A Cool New Concept for Omaha." Freeze is a unique entertainment and dining destination planned for the Old Market. It has been described as "part art gallery and part lounge." Interior amenities will include a water feature, a floor-to-ceiling wine tower and many other surprises. It's safe to say, Omaha has never seen anything quite like "Freeze." Our guest will be co- owner, Claudia Castellanos, a Harvard-educated, Miami native, who now makes Omaha her home.'..

Can't wait to hear more about 'Freeze'..
