OMAHA | Midtown Crossing Development | 11-7 stories | U/C

The $250 million Midtown Crossing development in Midtown Omaha is well underway. On what was once a sea of parking lots adjacent to the Mutual of Omaha and Mutual of Omaha Bank Headquarters, Midtown Crossing will have 7 mixed use buildings ranging in height from 7-11 stories. The development is centered around an expanded Turner Park and will feature a Douglas Movie Theater, Prairie Life Fitness Center, and a full service grocer (yet to be announced). The project will have 220,000 square feet of retail/ restaurant space, 297 condos, and 268 apartments.

Omaha is to me the surprise mini-boom of the Midwest. It's great to see.

Construction on this project is chugging along. The elevator shafts for most of the main buildings are almost complete and hopefully we will see some steel in a few weeks!

The developer is currently looking into adding a full service hotel to the project.

From the Omaha World Herald:

Quote:
Several hotel companies have approached Mutual with proposals, spokesman Jim Nolan said Tuesday, but the original plans didn't include a hotel and so far there's nothing to announce.

"We're exploring those possibilities," Nolan said, and considering such questions as whether a hotel would fit the project's physical layout, its financial projections and its planned usage.

Sorry, all I have is a picture from the web cam that has been posted several times. I'm going to try to get down there and take some photos soon.



All six elevator shafts are topped out at this point. Construction continues to steadily move a long.

A new rendering has also surfaced on this project:



More updates to come soon!

This project would look even more amazing if the buildings were built all the way around the circular park space!

This garage will be behind new buildings.

Also, here is a picture of the overall project. They are working away on a 7th elevator shaft as well as another floor.

Some information on the movie theater that will be located there:

July 22, 2008
Marcus Theatres® to Manage Upscale, Five-Screen Theatre
in Midtown Crossing Urban Development Project in Omaha, Neb.
Company brings stylish entertainment to Omaha

MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE <http://www.businesswire.com> )-- Marcus Theatres Corporation, a division of The Marcus Corporation (NYSE:MCS), today announced that it has signed an agreement to design and manage a five-screen, four-level upscale theatre and entertainment complex in Midtown Crossing at Turner Park, a 15-acre, mixed-use urban development project located in Omaha, Neb. The new theatre is scheduled to open in November 2009.

“The Midtown Crossing theatre complex will be unique to Omaha, as well as the entire region. The theatre will feature unique public spaces with upscale finishes, along with new and sophisticated architectural detailing highlighted by marble and tall vistas of glass,” said Bruce J. Olson, president of Marcus Theatres.

“Guests will enter the theatre on the ground level and take an escalator to the second level, which will feature a trendy, posh cocktail lounge. This sophisticated, contemporary lounge will be the perfect place for adults to relax and unwind while enjoying the sights of the city. The second level will also feature meeting space for private events or business meetings,” said Olson.

“As guests proceed to the third floor, they will enter the theatre level, which consists of the box office, a lobby area featuring a baby grand piano and five luxurious auditoriums. In each auditorium, guests will be able to experience an outstanding in-theatre dining experience supported by table service from a full wait staff.

The extensive menu features appetizers, meals, desserts and an outstanding selection of beer, wine, cocktails and specialty drinks. Each auditorium also has traditional theatre seating so guests have the option of enjoying the latest Hollywood blockbusters without dining during the film,” added Olson.

Olson noted that the highlight of the new Midtown Crossing theatre is the fifth auditorium, which will be the largest seating capacity and includes VIP reserved seating in the balcony level. “The balcony level will include plush, wide seats and an extraordinary level of personal service for guests who have selected exactly the seats in which they wish to sit. The fifth auditorium is the premiere experience in moviegoing.” In addition, the mezzanine level, from which people will enter the reserved VIP balcony section, will feature another stylish, urban lounge with Omaha skyline views.

“Marcus Theatres is looking forward to creating an entertainment destination for residents of Omaha’s most exciting new urban neighborhood,” said Olson. “Guests will be able to experience an outstanding in-theatre dining experience in each of our auditoriums, be wined and dined in our sophisticated, metropolitan cocktail lounges and enjoy the latest blockbusters in comfortable, relaxing seats with state-of-the-art digital projection and sound. This new stylish theatre will be a treat for residents and guests of Midtown Crossing and Omaha.”
