UNMC cancer center would be ‘transformational,’ backers say
By Juan Perez Jr.
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER

A new cancer research center was touted Monday for its potential to spur major redevelopment in midtown Omaha, with the goal of bringing new housing, stores, a hotel, jobs and tax dollars.

University of Nebraska Medical Center officials portrayed their plan as a catalyst to redevelop the Saddle Creek Road corridor into something like Aksarben Village or Midtown Crossing. Such plans could revive a concept to move Saddle Creek Road to accommodate a flood-control waterway.

Supporters of the $370 million UNMC project appealed to Omaha’s big-city ambitions during a final pitch for city funding. They again stressed that the cancer center would be a “transformational” project for Omaha.
