Personally, I would like to live in Riverfront place because of all of the good views, the bridge, and they just look so nice.

whoops, mis spelled Aksarben

If I had to choose an urban enviornment it would probably be AkSarBen... I appreciate the old traditional neighborhoods over the downtown core.

None of them. I prefer open spaces.

WallStreet Tower for me. If I have the option of spending any period of time in an Omaha highrise, I'm taking it.

I would say River front or aksarben, I like the traditiolnal feel of aksarben, but being on the river would be beautiful!

I see the quality of projects in Omaha increasing (Midtown, WS Tower over SoMa and Towns) now that the supply is catching up with demand.

My biggest worry for Omaha: Real Estate isn't worth 230+/sf in downtown Omaha. It was just such an under-served market that Soma/Towns etc could charge it for marginal quality product. I am concerned that once supply meets demand, you won't be able to sell your condo in downtown for more than 180/sf (give or take a bit).

I respect your opinion, and you bring some valid points.. but there are other things to consider as well..

1. Job growth in downtown..
2. Entertainment growth in mid/down town
3. Omaha has been growing 10-14k per year, meaning even if 1% chooses midtown/downtown that is up to 150 additional people or 50-75 units every year.. and that is looking at the worse case scenario..

Now the downtown explosion will probably taper some... but demand will always be there, the Wallstreet tower would satisfy about 3 years worth of units sold by itself, however this is basing it off of a very small fraction, a mere 1% of all growth choosing midtown/downtown as a place to live, and I'd actually predict that it is at least twice or three times or more than that amount.
