Saddlecreek Target -> Neighborhood Market

The Grow Omaha Guys mention the other day that Walmart plans to build a "Neighborhood Market" on the old Saddle Creek Target Property.

better than nothing, I suppose. although the area probably doesn't really need another grocery store.

I can't believe I'm saying this but this is a good thing.  That empty Target is sucking the life out of that area.  The building is trashed, all the copper / piping has been stolen with massive water damage inside.   The owners live in Canada and don't give a rats |expletive| about it.

Does this change the master plan for Saddle Creek?  Isn't it supposed to move?

Moving Saddle Creek is probably more a pipe dream of UNMC than anything and there is and has never been any hint of money for it.  This wouldn't really prevent anything though if that changed.

UNMC wants to move it south of Dodge.   Give it usable space for more research towers between bit and the cemetery.  

The thing about that is that there is a creek under the road, so handling the water has to be factored in.   UNMC's plan to open the creek and create some pondage and green space would help the leavenworth street floods.  

Pretty soon the west edge of UNMC will start encroaching on elmwood park.   One of our outposts is at the architecture building on 50th.  Just a matter of time...

I am not a fan of Wal-Mart, but I agree, a WalMart Market is better than the empty building we have now.

I overheard a (pretty loud) discussion at a restaurant the other day...sounded like one of the guys was the owner of the Westlake Hardware store next to the old Target.  He said that Walmart will take over the north end of the building and have a new north entrance.  The southern part of the building will have a few retail bays.  He sounded a little miffed that it would take back some parking lot space that he uses for mulch sales and such...

I just heard yesterday that things are already not looking good for them.

As for Wal-Mart moving to the location of the old Target building - it's about time someone came in and filled that vacant space! I also heard yesterday that they were planning on something like 9 locations around town.

So if a mini Walmart moves into the old Target space that's been vacant for years it's good. Okay, that makes sense. I agree. But in turn the same neighborhood might lose No Frills, leaving an equally-large retail space empty a block away. If that happens it seems like we'd be back to square one here.

I hope No Frills stays and I wish Goodwill would've gotten that old Target space instead. Ah well.

I heard the same tonight except the Target building will be leveled to make way for the new development.

I'm pretty sure this was pointed out elsewhere but this is now owned by Nash Finch, so no longer local.

With Nash Finch and Bag N Save both now being owned by Nash Finch, going to be interesting to see which ones they close.  Can't imagine they will keep all of the stores open.

A little clearer info on what I most recently heard.  Target building gone, Wal-Mart in a new building facing north retail bays between Westlake and Wal-Mart.  The retail bays wouldn't face Saddle Creek though, they would face each other looking north and south at each other.

I suppose I was correcting him but I was confused by the post as well.  I didn't know if there were stores branded Nash Finch in Omaha also.  Either way I get it now.

Yeah a bit.  It won't be anything too crazy though from what it sounds.  They said they expecting or looking more for like insurance office and dentist office type places more than retail stores.

La vista city council just approved a plat change for the Wal-Mart Market at 96/Giles.  That one is a done deal.  Comments at the meeting said the six or so WalMart Markets planned for the Omaha area were planning on opening at the same time, Jan 2014.

I worked for Wal-Mart as a cashier for almost 4 years in the past and I would say they aren't cruel to their employees. All the |expletive| that's in the news is mostly hype started by unions mad about the fact that Wal-Mart refuses to join a Union. Unless you have worked there yourself and have experienced cruel treatment, you have no grounds to say it. So sick of the wal-mart bashing lol... I used to work there - but don't shop there much due to the crappy people that shop there...that's the only disgust I have with the store. Besides, Target is closer to me.

I heard that the whole property is going to be cleared for a mixed use project.   From what I heard, there is going to be two buildings and a parking garage.   One of the buildings is going to have ground floor retail (Walmart) and five floors of apartment homes above.   The other building will be the same height and will be an Extended Stay hotel.

Not sure why you would think this is such a stretch.   By the sound of it, it's been confirmed that Walmart is going locating a store on this property.  With the popularity of Midtown Crossing, Aksarben Village, and Downtown, I can see where there could be a demand for more apartments in this area.   As for an Extended Stay Hotel, I think a lot of times they put these kind of hotels near hospitals.

Walmart eyes using former Target site on Saddle Creek as Neighborhood Market

Walmart is considering developing a neighborhood grocery store in the former Target location on Saddle Creek Road.
