Re: River's Edge Development (Playland Park)

This is really moving nicely with the steel up to 3 floors on the office building, looks like the facades are going up on the rowhouses and the wood is on site for the apartment building to start popping up.

Re: Downtown office vacancy rate

CBD lost ~30K SF in Q4, up to a 12.3% vacancy rate. The report shows that Q4 wasn't the best market wide for Omaha office wise.

Report states DT has over 40K sf u/c, they are the Alvine Building and the office building at the Capitol District.
