This issue of Review of Applied Urban Research features "Signs of Revitalization Adjacent to the CBD," by R. K. Piper.

Over the last five years, the central business district (CBD) in Omaha has shown visible and dramatic signs of revitalization through significant investments by both the public and private sectors. The new Central Park Mall in the core of the CBD has been a focal point for redevelopment. It is bounded by the new construction of a state office and education facility, the regional corporate headquarters for Northwestern Bell, the Central Park Plaza office complex and parking garage, and considerable rehabilitation of commercial, office, and residential space in the Old Market area. An impressive list of other large-scale new construction and rehabilitation projects have also been completed, are in progress, or are planned for the CBD in the near future.
