When it comes to money, Warren Buffet has plenty of it.  So much so that he could literally live anywhere- not just in the country – but also in the world.  When it comes down to where he wants to live though, the famed investor has been happy to call Omaha home since 1958.

Buffet was raised in the Dundee-Happy Hollow Historic District of Omaha.  On why he chooses to remain a life-long resident of Omaha, Buffet simply says, "There's plenty of other places I like, but the one I love is Omaha.  The weather may be a little better some other place else, but that really doesn't make much difference to me in terms of how I feel about enjoying life."

Nebraska Crossing Redevelopment

The Gretna City Council has just approved the Nebraska Crossing Redevelopment Plan.  This approval has moved the redevelopment project one step closer to reality.  The next step is to complete a detailed agreement with the developers.  When that agreement is approved, the $112 million dollar project can begin.

Developers say they already have 25 committed tenants out of a probable 60 when the project is complete.  Gap, Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers and White House Black Market are among the future tenants.  The monetary return on investment should be a boon for the City of Gretna.

Change is coming to the Crossroads Mall

Ah... 72nd and Dodge... a trip from one side of Omaha to the other usually takes me, and I'm guessing many of you, through that intersection.  I'm excited to learn that there are big plans afoot for a major redevelopment of what city planners call the Crossroads Economic Developement Zone.

New stores, a public park, a hotel, a transit hub, maybe even a new branch of the Omaha Public Library.  If things go as planned, spring of 2015 will bring us a new go-to destination in the heart of the city!
