So what we may see is a master plan for CLink expansion, pedestrian bridge, and complete development plans for Lot B and Lot D. That is a master plan for about 17 blocks of downtown Omaha, Clink expansion and Bridge (1 block), Lot B (4 blocks), and Lot D (about 12 blocks). This is a hugely important plan they are making.
Quoting myself now.
The more I think about it Lot D for sure should be part of the Riverfront plan since it fronts the railroad tracks and connecting Fahey road to the river front is critical to either development. Basically what the City needs is a master plan for redevelopment of everything from Lot D to the riverfront, extending through Con Agra Campus, and Heartland of America Park. Including Parking in Lot D to open up Lot B development, connecting North Downtown to the River Front, covering the railroad tracks, extending Heartland of America park to the river, extending the riverfront boardwalk from Lewis Clark landing all the way to the power plant apartments, building a street grid in the Con Agra Campus and in Lot D, extending Old Market into the Con Agra Campus, Lot D development to include retail, residential, and office.
