Have you driven down Underwood Ave and noticed that the Old Grandpa's store is gone? It happened overnight, didn't it? Well there are excited things happening. Here the details:
In Dundee development news, Grandpa’s Convenience Mart at 5018 Underwood will be razed and replaced with a three-story mixed use building. Construction is scheduled to begin this June which sets the project’s completion for late spring of 2016. During construction the sidewalk near the site will be closed and some parking stalls will be temporarily unavailable, but become usable again before the building is done. Compared to the building it replaces, the new mixed-use building will be taller and sit closer to the street. The façade materials will include red brick to match the historic Dundee aesthetic. The first floor retail space will be equipped to house two restaurants, the second floor will be a pediatric clinic, and the third will contain six apartments. Omaha Public Works is involved in part of the project that involves partial replacement of the adjacent alley. The owner is Red Brick, LLC, the architect is Alley Poyner Macchietto Architecture, and the contractor is Boyd Jones Construction.
