Too late, the changed it a few years ago. They sign that was there forever doesn't have the neon square anymore.

You can cycle through all the old street maps images on Google. In the upper left corner there is a gray box with the location and date. Click the date to see the older image. I can see the old marquee on there.

Well, the original post in this thread for the project is August of 2008...
Hailey Konnath / World-Herald staff writer wrote:The City of La Vista continues to power through the lengthy approvals process for its long-awaited, multimillion-dollar 84th Street redevelopment project.
The project, which will cost the city an estimated $54.1 million, was announced in late April. But the city has already marched through a slew of plan approvals, with more on the horizon.
“This is an aggressive time schedule,” Brenda Gunn, La Vista’s city administrator, said during a May interview.
Preliminary estimates show construction costs involving the city could total $54.1 million over the course of several years, according to the redevelopment projects plan approved at the July 19 City Council meeting.
The first phase will cost $28.1 million for work at the Brentwood Crossing site on 84th Street and Giles Road and $8 million for work on the golf course, city swimming pool or anywhere outside Brentwood Crossing. The city hopes to close the swimming pool, on the west side of 84th Street, and use the space for additional parking.

Lol. Did you check when this thread was started? Over 8 years ago. And that was after much speculation....
Chris Erickson, co-founder of City Ventures, said the demolition process is expected to take four to six months, with work on the first buildings to begin in the spring.
The existing Chili’s, McDonald’s and car wash will remain. And there will be a new spot for First National Bank in the City Centre.
Erickson said he wouldn’t name expected tenants for the project but hopes to be able to do so soon. Of the potential tenants, some already operate in the area and others would be new to the market.
City Centre is scheduled to open in summer 2018.

Portions of the redevelopment are on track to open in late 2018, before the holiday shopping season, the project’s developer said Tuesday.
The redevelopment’s construction timeline has seen a bit of a delay, but it’s still on schedule, said Chris Erickson, a developer with City Ventures.
The retail portion of the City Centre should still open in late 2018, he said. Construction on the buildings should begin within the next few weeks. Demolition of the old buildings at the site wrapped up this spring.
Multifamily residential units will become available in the year and a half following that, he said.
Hailey Konnath / World-Herald staff writer wrote:Their plan: The indoor club, estimated to cost about $15 million, would be privately funded by the booking companies and City Ventures. The amphitheater would be funded by the City of La Vista as part of its transformation of La Vista Falls Golf Course into a city park.

An amphitheater was part of initial plans for the park, which the city is paying for with an increase in the local sales tax.
