OPPD will sell a stretch of its property in downtown Omaha. The sale includes the utility's original generating facility - the Jones Street Station.
NuStyle Development Corporation will pay $100,000 for a 10-acre portion of property along 5th & Marcy.
The Jones Street Station has been decommissioned since the mid-1980s, but since then OPPD has had to cover expenses tied to the property - including security and maintenance.
The vote to authorize selling the old Jones Street Station was taken during the Board’s regular monthly meeting in February.
The property has been for sale since August 2013.
