Cordish Cos. to develop upscale outlet center in Nebraska

La Vista, Neb. -- Baltimore-based The Cordish Cos. said Monday that it will develop an upscale outlet center and entertainment district in La Vista’s Southport West Development. The burgeoning Omaha suburb is already home to a Cabela’s, La Vista Conference Center and several hotels.

Cordish said its vision is to create a regional shopping and entertainment destination to build on the success of Southport West’s existing businesses and hotels. The initial phase of the project will consist of an upscale outlet center and entertainment district, all of which will be linked through extensive public gathering spaces, pedestrian-friendly walkways and streetscapes.

The first phase of the development will total approximately 435,000 sq. ft., with a construction budget totaling approximately $114 million. The project has been master planned to include additional phases of retail and entertainment development in excess of 100,000 sq. ft.

“We are extremely excited to announce such a major development in La Vista.” said Blake Cordish VP.

Other notable Cordish projects include: The Power Plant in Baltimore; Charleston Place in Charleston, S.C.; Seminole Hard Rock Resorts in Florida; The Power & Light District in Kansas City, Mo.; Fourth Street Live!, Louisville, Ky.; and The Walk, Atlantic City, N.J.
