* Traction Lofts, two L-shaped, six-story brick buildings with first-floor retail and housing that would appeal to students and young professionals.
It would have a trendy, urban loft feel similar to the Tip Top apartments in Omaha, West said.
The buildings could have apartments, condominiums and maybe even a hotel on some lower floors.
Some housing would be built as three- or four-bedroom units that would appeal to students. In coming years, different types of housing, including more luxurious condos for purchase, would be built south of the development.
There would be a parking garage west of the Traction Lofts.
* The Yard, a public marketplace surrounded on three sides by a coffeehouse with rooft seating, restaurants and other retail.
The courtyard area would be highlighted by what designers are calling "The Cube," a giant box with screens that could showcase art, seasonal touches like images of falling snow in the winter, basketball highlights after a game, Husker football games and even movies on select nights.
