25 Cities Worth Moving to If You Want to Launch a Business

The Nebraska Advantage tax-incentive package enhances the city’s business climate and makes it a great place to start and grow a business.


Real estate office gets space in downtown Omaha

September 8, 2015

A real estate office has opened in a retail bay of the 1501 Jackson apartments in downtown Omaha.

The staffs of Seldin Co. and World Group Commercial Real Estate, which are affiliated, will provide services related to apartments and retail and office space.

Jeff Beals, vice president of World Group, said the new 2,615-square-foot office marks another step in the evolution of downtown Omaha.

For years, he said, many viewed the Old Market as the hub of shops and retailers. But with more apartments and downtown living, Omahans are beginning to see service-related businesses beyond restaurants and novelty shops and also beyond the boundaries of the Old Market.

The Seldin and World Group office is on the ground floor of the 75-unit 1501 Jackson apartment building, which opened last year and is named after its intersection.

“It’s a sign that Omaha is maturing,” Beals said. “We’re starting to see a full range of businesses come in, and this is certainly indicative of that.”

About 15 Seldin employees, previously scattered at various spots, will be based at the office to manage six downtown apartment properties, including the Limelight, Barker Building, 1501 Jackson and the still-under-construction Corvina and Flatiron units.

World Group brokers will have a rotating presence at the office, and at least one will be there on a daily basis. The downtown office will be open weekdays until 5 p.m.

World Group and Seldin each are headquartered in west Omaha. World Group is a full-service, commercial real estate firm founded in 1997 that provides sales, leasing and property management. In 2011, it became an affiliated company of Seldin, a diversified real estate management, development and construction organization founded in 1923.
