OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Crews started major demolition of the Crossroads Mall property Wednesday afternoon as an excavator starting pulling down the Sears Auto Center along Dodge Street.

Developers of the Crossroads Mall property joined Mayor Jean Stothert at 72nd & Dodge to mark the start of demolition at the site. The site had most recently been used as a drive-through COVID-19 testing site for Test Nebraska.

Demolition of Crossroads Mall began Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2020, as crews tore down the former Sears Auto Center along Dodge Street.

In August, Lockwood Development and Century Development announced it would redevelop the 40-acre Crossroads Mall property at 72nd & Dodge streets into a mixed-use property, with plans to include retail, restaurants, a hotel, apartments, and office space.

The project is expected to be completed in 2024.
