True to that aim, Midtown Crossing is fueling Midtown momentum through our vibrant blend of restaurants, retail and engaging community events as well as our support of Midtown Vision 2050, a strategy that reflects the extraordinary potential of midtown Omaha and guides its growth into a dynamic, transit-oriented urban community.
Beyond our 16-acres, widespread revitalization is quickly taking hold. Local developers have been buying and repositioning rundown apartments and other properties in the midtown neighborhood.
