September Luncheon:

La Vista City Centre is a private development project, led by City Ventures, to revitalize a 34-acre site along the 84th Street Corridor. The corridor once was a vibrant shopping district on the edge of the Omaha Metro. The City has grown around it and over the years the big box stores have migrated to the outskirts of the metro, which has left a large void in what is now an area that is centrally located with great access to the entire Greater Omaha Metro area. City Ventures collaborated with the global planning firm EDSA and the City of La Vista to come up with a redevelopment plan that connects the community’s goals with the voids in the market to create a new community destination. The $200+ million project plans to replace a vacant shopping center with approximately 350 apartments, more than 200,000 square feet of retail, dining, and entertainment space, 100,000 square feet of lofted office space, as well as space for a “signature” build-to-suit office site and boutique hotel site.


Mr. Erickson is jointly responsible for the acquisition, development, and management of City Ventures assets and businesses. He has extensive experience in real estate acquisition, finance, due diligence, building design and construction as well as urban planning, entitlements, and master planning in addition to starting and managing operating businesses.

Both through his work at City Ventures, and prior appointments in leadership roles for companies in the development industry from the real estate development to design / consulting to construction, he has worked on projects valued in excess of a billion dollars.

Mr. Erickson is also active in the community by serving on the Board of Directors for in Common Community Development and by volunteering his time and experience helping local foundations and non-profits with their real estate challenges. In 2014, Mr. Erickson was named a Midlands Business Journal Top 40 Under 40 for his leadership in growing City Ventures’ development & real estate portfolio. He has a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Iowa State University, is a Professional Engineer, and a LEED Accredited Professional.
