A few updates...
River Front Place II topped off
TD Ameritrade Park has grass (River Front Place towers visible beyond left field... Qwest Center convention center/arena beyond center... downtown out of fov to the right... skyline visible from 3rd base side)
It's big... I imagine the largest ballpark in the nation without a MLB team... in case anyone doesn't know the history... we've hosted the NCAA College World Series for some 50 years... just got a contract to host another -25- years in return for our building this stadium to host it.
Two big 'TD Ameritrade' projects going on... two tower cranes now erected in suburban Omaha 'Old Mill' area... with construction of their new headquarters well underway.
In other news, Omahans are excited about the recent opening of it's first Trader Joe's as well.
Also, Midtown Crossing... has added a new Wohlner's grocery store.
Element by Westin
Numerous new restaurants... the area is really developing a vibe, all in what used to be an underutilized green space and surface parking lot.
New theater/entertainment/retail... new Blue Cross/Blue Shield offices in background
Capitol Rows currently under construction in the Park East area between downtown/midtown, north of the Creighton campus
Finally, because our AAA baseball franchise ownership decided TD Ameritrade was way too big for minor league baseball (I agree with him)... Sarpy County is building a minor league baseball sized ball park in the suburbs... running at about the same pace as TD Ameritrade, but on a much smaller scale... naming rights just awarded last week... 'Werner Park' (major sponsor being the large, Omaha based, trucking company, Werner Enterprises)
