$22 million to build the pedestrian bridge.


I should mention too, construction is well underway on the downtown TD Ameritrade Park... a 25,000 seat stadium being built almost exclusively for the NCAA College World Series which Omaha has hosted for nearly 60 years... and has a contract in hand to host for another 25.

I love Omaha. Surprisingly cosmopolitan for a metro of 900K. So underrated.

Capitol Rows

Omaha says 'Thanks'.

Project just announced...



Quote:
A row-house-style apartment project could replace a parking lot between Joslyn Art Museum and Creighton University.

Tetrad Development Corp. is proposing a $10 million project to build 82 apartments and a corner retail site northeast of 24th and Davenport Streets.
The Capitol Rows development is believed to be the first new private development proposal to emerge since Omaha adopted its downtown master plan last year.

Doug Bisson, an urban planner at HDR Inc. who led the creation of the downtown plan, said Capitol Rows is exactly the kind of project envisioned.

It would provide new housing downtown — one of the plan's key goals — and would do so in a neighborhood projected to develop into the Joslyn District. By repurposing parking lots, the project also would fulfill a goal of seizing small redevelopment opportunities.

“That's what we've always envisioned,” Bisson said. “Little by little, people are starting to find those neat opportunities.”

The project would be geared toward Creighton upperclassmen and graduate students, said Don Mohlman, president of Tetrad Development. It would have 60 one-bedroom apartments and 22 two-bedroom units — all renting at market rates, Mohlman said.

The buildings would be designed in an urban row house style. Two apartment buildings along 24th Street would be three stories high, and a building along Davenport Street would be four stories tall.

The developer would like to finish construction by late summer 2011. “We're quite excited about the project,” Mohlman said.

Tetrad Development is a subsidiary of Tetrad Corp., a development and construction services firm headed by W. David Scott, son of Omaha businessman and philanthropist Walter Scott.

America First Real Estate Group would manage the property. America First is a subsidiary of Burlington Capital Group, headed by Lisa Roskens, daughter of Omaha businessman and philanthropist Michael Yanney.

The project is going through the city approval process.

The Omaha Planning Board has signed off on the necessary zoning changes, land plats and a redevelopment plan that would provide the project with $765,000 in tax-increment financing, or the temporary use of new property taxes generated by the improvements to pay some of the project's costs.

The City Council is scheduled to hold a public hearing and vote on part of the plans on June 29.
