New Apartment Complex Proposed on Dodge St

OMAHA, NE (Omaha World-Herald News Source) – An eight-story apartment building proposed for Omaha’s Dundee area would add a few hundred more housing units to a stretch of busy Dodge Street.

The 46 Dodge Apartments project calls for clearing eight aging structures southwest of 46th and Dodge Streets to make way for 278 market-rate units.

Kansas City-based developer Gary Hassenflu says the project cost is $52-million. He tells the Omaha World-Herald he was drawn to Omaha because of the growing University of Nebraska Medical Center. He pulled the trigger when the planned Rapid Bus Transit system announced a stop at this spot.

The project goes before the Planning Board on Wednesday.
