About Central Park Plaza
Central Park Plaza is a 16 story, commercial office complex in Downtown Omaha, NE. The complex consists 419,679 square feet of office space, in two red brick towers with a lower level center connector on the first and second floors. The building features a central courtyard and a six story parking garage that is located directly north of the building and is connected by a skywalk. In 2007 a "sunrise" lighting feature was added to the angled face of the towers. The towers, built in a "V" formation, have been central to Omaha's skyline since they were built in the 1980's. Originally built in 1982, the buildings housed the corporate headquarters for Conagra until the company began to move to their new riverfront campus in 1988, and they had completely vacated the buildings by 1990. Over the years the buildings have housed offices for several corporations important to Omaha's economic history including; First National Bank of Omaha, US West, OPPD, Norwest Bank, and the Norchem division of Enron. In 1983, in an attempt to revitalize retail along 16th Street in downtown, a two story mall, Parkfair Mall, was added to the west side of Central Park Plaza, across from the J. L.
