The NoDo development in Downtown Omaha
The city of Omaha has continued to expand from Downtown Omaha all the way to West Omaha! The city has been working to revitalize several areas in Omaha from the Dundee neighborhood to North Downtown! North Downtown Omaha may reinvent itself. Again.
The area between 15th to 22nd streets between Cumings and Mike Fahey streets might go under major development, if approved by the the city council. This could help everyone in the area: the local businesses, shops, tourism and more!
Omaha city officials, Kiewit Corporation, Creighton University, First National Bank and Union Pacific are all looking to help revitalize the Builders District at NoDo Redevelopment Plan. The plan calls for the city to commit up to $20 million in redevelopment bonds for property acquisition, demolition, site preparation and other costs which would begins with a $6.6 million bond for the Kiewit’s headquarters to be developed in the area by next year. The new Kiewit headquarters in the first stage in this development process.
Where dilapidated warehouses and foreclosed businesses once stood are now replaced with bustling hotels, bars, TD Ameritrade Park, CHI Health Center and retail shops. The NoDo district is the place to be for the biggest tourist week of the year in Omaha, the College World Series.
While great for the contractor giant, the plans create a downside for nearby shops. The local businesses that have been in the area for years, even decades have more concerns that just moving from one building to the next.
Noddle Development is working with local businesses to help with relocation and transitioning if they are willing to move out. So far, businesses are willing to move with the new plan in place. The first phase begins with Kiewit’s global headquarters and the rest will be multifamily housing, office buildings, first floor retail, restaurants and a possible parking garage. Along with this, is the expansion of Creighton University athletic fields, Union Pacific child care facility and more!
If the city gets on board, expect the area to grow in light of the development proposal.
This will bring the area up to speed with the already developed areas around! This will also connect the area with TD Ameritrade Park and other tourist spots in the historic Downtown Omaha area. Follow the Omaha World-Herald to learn more about this development in this area. Who knows, maybe you’ll be working in this area in the next couple of years!
The Fairfield Team is excited for these new development projects in the Downtown and North Omaha area. These larger companies moving to this area provides a better sense of community, growth and future expansion for this area. The NoDo district might be the coolest and newest place in Omaha for employees, locals and college students to work and hangout in!
