Riverfront development could impact Iowa, Nebraska

Posted: Updated:

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Work is underway on a mixed-use development in Council Bluffs, Iowa, that could benefit the city's neighbor across the Missouri River in Nebraska.

The River's Edge is a mixed-use development that will include offices, apartments, retail space and condominiums.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that co-developers Noddle Cos. and the Iowa West Foundation expect the riverfront development to attract $170 million in investment along the Missouri River's eastern side.

A Noddle Cos. official says River's Edge could also spark development in Omaha, Nebraska, and strengthen ties between businesses and communities on both sides of the river.

The Riverfront Revitalization Planning Committee is continuing to plan for ways to improve the riverfront corridor. The group includes representatives from both Omaha and Council Bluffs.
