Construction of a new Walmart Neighborhood Market along Saddle Creek Road, just south of California Street is nearing completion. This new addition to the Omaha business market is adding an extensive amount of new landscaping to what had been an ugly and empty parking lot, and basically abandoned former store.
The extent of plantings is quite impressive. Many new trees, some fresh grass, shrubbery, flowering plants along with two stormwater retention basins are completely helping to transform this formerly drab locale. The following pictures show the scene on August 13, during lunch hour.
New trees along Saddle Creek, which will certainly help improve the streetscape.
This stormwater basin is along Saddle Creek Road, and there is a second basin south of the building.
The store is expected to open on August 20th.
