Omaha Public Power District sells property

Feb 15, 2014

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The Omaha Public Power District has sold a portion of its original property in the downtown area.

The utility's board of directors voted recently to sell land that included the generating facility known as the Jones Street Station. NuStyle Development Corporation bought it after submitting a bid for $100,000.

The facility, which once produced more than 100 megawatts, was decommissioned in the mid-1980s. The buildings on the 16-acre property have been unused for about 25 years. Still, they were incurring expenses.

The facility was marketed for sale in August.
