Macy's has had their eye on Omaha since at least 2006. About modcut time they made a move.

I'm all for it--so long as they don't try to turn Crossroads into a "lifestyle center", I'd probably die. With apple store interested as well as a big box store like Macy's makes me worry that the Crossroads developers may bend under pressure and provide a place that's easier to access by car. After all, it would be the only Macy's in town, so how else would the people <--- out there get all the way ---> over here? Keeping my fingers crossed.

I would rather something like macy's or trader joe's move downtown. Far more people and greater choice in transportation. Not to mention something else that could revitalize the area even further.

I understand what you guys are saying but... There is already the old Dillards Building at Crossroads. It would be wonderful if something went in there. It would be perfect for Macy's. Right now anything is better than what Crossroads is turning into. As much as I love downtown we have to understand that it is not the end all be all. To have a healthy city all areas need to thrive not just downtown and the suburbs. Without major retail in the area, 72 and Dodge will continue to ghettoize even further than it has.

Without major retail? All that is there is major retail. Forget a ghetto, 72nd/Dodge would be a barren wasteland without major retail. On the other hand, downtown has the heterogeneous mixture that is a bit more sustainable for retail.

Wouldnt mind seeing an Apple Store or Trader Joe's in the Shadowlake Center. The new Werner park will draw more shopping up the 370 corridor.

I see Werner Park doing the same thing for Sarpy that the Mid-America Center did for Council Bluffs, but I could be wrong.

As far as this, it sounds well and good, and the Macy's idea is a good one. The problem with malls is they're all exactly the same so it's good that these will differentiate from say Village Pointe.

What has the Mid-America Center done for Council Bluffs? If you look in the area nothing really has been built. There has been a lot of promises, but thus far nothing really has happened. Last fall I believe ketv (wowt?) did a story covering just that problem.

Not only that but the area is purly auto-centric. Forget about walking or biking anywhere there. I went to Bass pro shops there(about the only thing there) just to look around last winter and the area is a nightmare. Council Bluffs could really learn a thing or two from other cities about designing livable streets that work for everyone.
