Perhaps you noticed something missing on the drive down Harney Street to downtown Omaha.

A 17,000-square-foot brick structure at 2584 Harney Street has been demolished after roof failure led to a collapse, said Jerry Reimer of Midtown Properties LLC, which owns the property.

Reimer said the warehouse, which was at the end of a strip of commercial buildings, is not likely to be replaced in the near future.

A company called 1-800-GOT-JUNK had been renting the space. There are no plans to rebuild at this time, Reimer said. The land will sit vacant for now.

“It wasn't a pleasant event,” Reimer said.
