Kiewit started work on the site of the $103 million “flexible seating” space, capable of accommodating audiences of up to 3,000 people, last summer, the release states.

Set to open in mid-2023, the venue located around 11th and 12th streets, between Dodge Street and Capitol Venue, is intended to complement the Holland Performing Arts Center, and provide a performance space for local artists and organizations.

“The live music venue will significantly contribute to Omaha’s downtown by providing a unique concert venue that will complement the Holland Performing Arts Center and connect the city’s revitalized riverfront to growing developments in north downtown,” Omaha Performing Arts President Joan Squires said in the release.
