Spring at Cedar – A Poem

Green all around,

Lots of wonderful grounds abound.

Bushes and grasses and trees,

Loads of space to roam free!

Sit with a neighbor in our shared spaces,

Start up the grill,

Feel the wind in our faces,

As one takes some time to chill.

Mowing and weed-eating each week,

To keep the community’s looks at their peak.

Tending to the mulch beds,

Fixing and patching up the sidewalks and lots,

So much can be said,

For the work that we put into these spots.

We are lucky for the residents that live with us,

For the community that we’re in.

The greenery and beauty is a definite plus,

but the people are where the good times begin!

Welcome in Spring 2021 with a New Home – Only two Left Until Summer!

Cedar Heights has been thrilled with the community we have throughout the winter; plenty of residents returning to live with us another year, and some new faces to round out our roster. We are always thankful to be the place that some call home, but like we always say, it has been a little sad to not have as many opportunities for new residents to swoop in and call home. With that said, we have made it a personal mission to try to get the word out as much as possible, and let everyone know if we ever have anything available. Knowing this, we checked what we had coming up, and we were a bit alarmed…

 

WE ONLY HAVE TWO MORE APARTMENTS LEFT FOR THE REST OF SPRING.

 

While this is a nice problem to have, it is a little sad that we will have so little to offer until Summer. Take a peak below to see more on these ONE-derful one bedroom apartments (see what we did there?).

  • 605 – One bedroom + loft, one bathroom, available between 4/23/2021 and 4/30/2021. 1240 sq. ft. and priced at $930/mo. Includes a balcony, fireplace, dishwasher, refrigerator, garbage disposal and stove/range. (Washer/dryer units are provided communally on each floor in the building)
  • 713 – One bedroom, one bathroom, available between 4/23/2021 and 4/30/2021. 690 sq. ft. and priced at $700/mo. Includes a patio walkout, fireplace, dishwasher, refrigerator, garbage disposal and stove/range. (Washer/dryer units are provided communally on each floor in the building)

We are sure that these spaces will not last long, so inquire today! Once they are gone it is very likely that we will not have anything else until June or July. Please inquire with our office by contacting us through the following means:

  1. Phone: (402)889-3560
  2. Email: cedarheights@roberthancockco.com
  3. Facebook: @rhccedarheights
  4. Website: https://roberthancockco.com/property/cedar-heights/

Finally, if you are a current resident, but know someone that may be looking for an apartment such as the ones listed below, let them know! If they state that you referred them when they first reach out about the apartment, you will be eligible for a resident referral bonus of $100 (they have to mention you by name upon first inquiry in order for you to be eligible).

Usher in Spring with a new home in a beautiful, green community. Share that time with great neighbors, attentive staff, and plenty of space (both inside the apartment and out). We can’t wait to hear from you!

Get to Know our Neighborhood: Businesses Near Cedar Heights

Our apartment community offers a lot to be excited about! Great grounds and landscaping, wonderfully spacious apartments and great staff. If you are looking for a home where your needs are taken care of, and you can live comfortably, then Cedar Heights is a great choice! With this said, we know that as important as it is to have a wonderful home, it is often just as important to have a central location that has shops and locales nearby. We wracked our brains and thought of plenty of locations that make Cedar Heights a special space to live.

 

  • Restaurants: L Street is right down the way from us, and even near the intersection of L and 50th, you find plenty of quick bites such as Raising Canes, Jimmy Johns, Arbys and Taco Bell. Right here on 50th and Grover, we have a new restaurant and pub in Blondies Pub and Pizza, and there still more off of Saddle Creek and Center.
  • Stores: Again, on the corner of 50th and L is Family Fare, which is a mid size store with great prices and plenty of options. Hy-Vee and Walgreens are right off of 50th and Center, and on the flip side of Grover is a Walmart Grocer.
  • Parks: Several are nearby, with one right off of 50th and Grover. Aksarben also has several walking areas with great views and shops.
  • Gas Stations. MegaSaver is right off of 60th and Grover, as well as a Hy-Vee gas station that is on 50th and Center. These are just the nearest options.
  • Pubs/Bars: For those old enough to have an adult beverage, we have already mentioned Blondies Pub. There is also the Poop Deck that is right off of 60th and Grover.
  • Miscellaneous: Right down the street on the corner of 50th and Grover, there is a used car dealership, a tailor, a pet groomer and a convenience store. All useful, especially in a pinch.
  • Storage: Affordable Family Storage, as well as various storage sites are right down the street off of 50th and L. Especially useful for the apartment crowd with too many items.

Honestly, we are finding it difficult to not want to live here, especially if you are not into travelling long distances to shop. While we think that we are a wonderful place to live and stay, why not take a second to look at these places and frequent these businesses. We could all use a helping hand during these tough economic times.

Holidays done Safely: Christmas Edition

We are back with more activities for those looking to celebrate the holidays while staying safe and healthy! As we love the holidays over here at Cedar Heights, we would love to list a few ideas for events/activities to partake in during this Christmas season. Read on to get more details on wonderful things to do during December:

 

  • Omaha Community Playhouse is streaming performances of the classic A Christmas Carol. Although there is a cost to stream this program, it is an OCP staple, and a welcome sight for those looking for a bit of normalcy this year!
  • Christmas at Union Station: An annual event at Durham with décor galore! It appears that admissions will be reduced, and masks requirements enforced, but another welcome return, and a great chance to see great exhibits with a festive twist!
  • Light Shows Aplenty: Take a look at many places in Omaha, such as the Old Market or Midtown for amazing and breathtaking light displays! It is good enough to make you feel warm inside, even in the midst of the winter cold. Werner Park even has a paid light show that is a drive thru, and honestly, that is our kind of holiday display!
  • Window Displays: We just found out that Chocolat Abeille’s in the Old Market has a window display that boasts… a real Santa and Mrs. Claus?! I can’t believe we even get to read that! They are positioned in the window in a snow globe and even pose for photos! Go pay them a visit on 12/19/2020 from 2-4 for a special and safe display that really comes to life in front of you!

This is only a taste of all of the things that you can do in Omaha for the holidays this year! So many shows/orchestras that are streaming performances, lights/trees/décor all over, and ways to still eat and drink all of your holiday sweets and treats responsibly. Take a look HERE for more! We at Cedar Heights wish you well, ask that you do your best to stay safe and hope that everyone has a joyous and happy holidays.

Cedar Heights Food Drive and More!

Cedar Heights and the Robert Hancock and Co. Family are pleased to be collecting food donations for Food Bank for the Heartland! Typically, each year we do a food drive to benefit charitable organizations in our community, but this year, we are doing it with a twist! Each week, we have orchestrated a specific type of item that we would like to see donated. Our first week was for cereals, our second was for items used in making peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, and this week, we have been working to get items that used in making Spaghetti! We think that these items will easy hold on shelves, and will make for easy meals for anyone in need!

As well, Robert Hancock and Co. is making a money donation to the organization that will be delivered when all food items from our communities are collected and dropped off. We know that food and funding are valuable donations that may really make a difference. Just as we want to make a difference with our residents, we want to be a force of good in the lives of those around us in the greater Omaha area.

We are almost to 1000 total items donated between all of our communities! With the help of our wonderful residents, we are really hoping to total or surpass this number before the end of the week when our contest ends! Do you believe we can make it? If so, please consider making a donation! Our office in particular has donation boxes stationed just outside our leasing office doors.

Thanks to all that have been helping us this year. Cedar Heights, as well as all Robert Hancock and Co. communities are so fortunate to have amazing support from our incredible residents.

Finally, Cedar Heights does have a couple one bedroom apartments coming available! We have one that will be available in December and one that will be available in January. Our apartments are in short supply, so if you, or someone you know are looking for a wonderful home to move into this winter, please contact our office! A wonderful community with excellent staff, we know that we will make a great destination for someone looking for their new home.

Celebrate October at Fall/Halloween Themed Locations

The Cedar Heights staff loves Fall. Honestly, it is a bit of an obsession, and we want to share that love and zeal with all of our guests and residents. However, things are a little different this year with what Fall locales are open, and what new requirements they have to keep people safe. Luckily, we are here to help! We will include some of our most anticipated places to visit this October (pumpkin patches, haunted attractions, etc.), and tell you what you will need to expect if you are planning on going to one of them! We want to keep you safe while allowing you a little piece of normalcy this Fall!

 

  • Vala’s Pumpkin Patch

Website: https://www.valaspumpkinpatch.com/

With all sorts of rides, attractions, apple orchard and pumpkin patch, Vala’s is a must see this and every season. In order to visit, you will need to wear a mask in all lines, on all attractions and in all spaces where adequate social distancing is not possible. They are also limiting capacity, and will cut off admissions if capacity is reached. So, if you are planning on attending, it is recommended to purchase tickets sooner rather than later!

Bellevue Berry and Pumpkin Patch

Website: https://bellevueberryfarm.com/

Another wonderful pumpkin patch with plenty of other activities to partake in! They are requiring masks for everyone attending, with the assumption that the mask is to be worn at all times unless eating or drinking. We are unsure about their occupancy or availability, so please check in with them via their website for more details.

 

Scary Acres

Website: https://www.scaryacres.com/

One of the few Omaha Haunted Houses that will be open for this Halloween Season. Their website details all of the safety precautions they are taking, but with a large set of grounds to accommodate social distancing, Scary Acres will be a fun, scary, and safe (please visit at your own risk) experience in October.

 

Haunted Hollow Scream Park

Website: https://www.hauntedhollowomaha.com/

Another large-setting Haunted House that will be open this October. They are taking the same precautions as Scary Acres, and boast many attractions and events. This should be another Haunt you will not want to miss.

 

Prospect Hill Cemetery Tour

Website: https://www.visitomaha.com/event/prospect-hill-cemetery-tour/34206/

A tour of a cemetery, full of spooky, interesting and intriguing tales? Sign us up!  These tours, which are happening all the way up to Halloween night, will be a great way to get that chill down your spine while also doing something educational and a little off the beaten path.

 

Trick or Treat Nights at Omaha Children’s Museum

Website: https://www.visitomaha.com/event/trick-or-treat-nights/34237/

Hooray for some safe, kid-friendly fun! On October 16th and October 23rd, Omaha Children’s Museum will be hosting Trick or Treat Nights, allowing children to take the O.C.M S.T.E.A.M wagon to different Halloween-themed activities. Pre-packaged candy and goodies will be given. Take the family for a fun night at one of Omaha’s most well-known locations! (The Durham Museum is doing something similar on October 24th and 25th!)

 

Thursday Theater in the Capitol District: October Films

Website: https://www.visitomaha.com/event/thursday-theater%3a-ghostbusters/34241/

For all the Halloween film junkies out there, the Capitol District is hosting a free screening of different Halloween movies through October. This will start tonight with the airing of the classic Ghostbusters! Keep on eye on the Capitol District for more information on what movie will be playing each Thursday!

 

These are just a portion of the activities you will find in the greater Omaha area during the month of October and for Fall 2020. If you would like more resources for exciting, fun, scary or relaxing things to do this Autumn, check the link out here: Omaha Events for Fall 2020.

We hope this will help everyone find something to do this year that is safe and fun! We know that this time of year is a big hit with many, us included, and although some things are not available to do in 2020, we want it to be known that there are still plenty ways to enjoy this time. Be safe, stay healthy, and Happy Fall!

 

20+ Things To Do In Nebraska This Fall (2020 Updates) - Oh My! Omaha

ALL ABOUT YOGA & CATS

Sometimes finding things that are cat friendly can be difficult. At Cedar Heights Apartments you’re in luck since we are a cat and caged animal friendly community. Any one of our one or two bedrooms we can allow up to two members of the feline family! Aside from any Robert Hancock & Co. property or other such residences, more and more places have branched out to allow cats. At Felius Cat Café for example located in Omaha, Ne you can now enjoy the opportunity to have a nice cup of coffee while surrounded by cats. What a purrrrfect environment to give these animals some cuddles, and maybe even a good home. Felius has gone a step further as of January 20th to host yoga classes with free-roaming adoptable cats every other Sunday. All proceeds go to Felius Cat Café and Omaha Wags to riches non-profits. Each Sunday there will be two time slots open to join this yoga class and will be led by a gentle movement yoga instructor. If you’re interested please purchase your tickets in advance, and be sure to check their facebook page for updates on these events. Yoga and Cats will be held at 2450 Harney Street Omaha, Ne 68131, and don’t forget to bring your yoga mats!

 

WHAT BRINGS YOU JOY?

 

 

For those Women who may Netflix binge Marie Kondo’s new show Tidying Up, you may appreciate this all Girl’s event coming up. February 19th at 6:30pm-8:00pm Restore Chiropractic Center is hosting The Refuge: Uncluttered with Jess Goswick. Similarly to the show, Jess will be going over uncluttering your life, and talk about finding Joy, finding your passion, and finding yourself by clearing the clutter. This is a free event with drinks, and appetizers, and is designed to help in those fresh Starts. You can check out their Facebook invite for more details!

While on the subject of fresh starts, does your current apartment bring you JOY? If not and you’re looking to find somewhere new to call Home, then please check out Cedar Heights Apartments. With spacious units, beautifully maintained grounds, and our convenient location allowing quick access to so much, we encourage you to stop by this gem that we are so proud of and let us help you find something else that will bring you JOY! Our Community has one and two bedrooms of which we currently have two bedroom availability, and may have some other exciting floor plans come up very soon. We look forward to meeting You.
