The entertainment complex in Aksarben Village is taking shape, with the first tenant scheduled to open in late fall.

Challenging economic conditions caused the developers to change building designs and even delay the project by about six months, but the skeleton of a new building now rises from property formerly home to a horse-racing complex.

Construction began in January on the 83,000-square-foot building, which will feature a movie theater, an athletic club and restaurants.

Aspen Athletic Club, a franchise that started in Des Moines, will be the first business to open in the building, in November.

“We'll continuously have openings over the next several weeks after that,” said John Hughes, president of Magnum Development Corp., the developer of the entertainment complex.

Hughes said the developers will announce specific opening dates for the 10-screen Main Street Theatres Inc. and other retail spaces this summer. The weather's impact on the construction timeline makes it too difficult to project more definite dates, he said.

The all-digital theaters will have a total of 1,700 seats. One auditorium's curved walls mimic a rotunda that is a prominent exterior feature of the building's architecture.

With the theater and athletic club, the building is nearly 90 percent leased, and Magnum is negotiating with potential tenants for the four remaining retail spaces, Hughes said. Magnum expects that the building will be fully leased when it opens, he said.

Hughes declined to name the four restaurants in lease negotiations. He said one is a fast-casual restaurant and one is a specialty ice-cream vendor.

The 22,000-square-foot health club will be the first Nebraska location for Aspen Athletic Club. In December, the company opened a temporary, satellite facility at the nearby Aksarben Place shopping center, at 63rd and Center Streets, to recruit members.

The club's second floor will include space for personal training, group exercise classes, a yoga studio, spinning room, cardio workouts, weight training and circuit training. It will overlook the entertainment complex's plaza and Stinson Park.

The ground floor will contain the lobby, locker rooms and kids' area.

Free public parking for the complex, called “Zone 5” for now, will be in three locations: a large surface lot to the west; on-street parking surrounding the entire block; and a parking garage directly north of the building.
