City officials have big plans to transform area west of downtown

Drive west from the Old Market and the heart of Omaha's downtown business district, and you encounter a stretch of blocks that seem to have lost their way.
There are plenty of big institutions — Joslyn Art Museum, Central High School and the Rose Theater, among them — but just as many vacant storefronts, empty office buildings and unkempt parking lots. It's a bit of a no man's land, wedged between the well-established Old Market and Midtown Crossing neighborhoods.
