Does anyone know where this will be in relation to Omaha and Lincoln? I know it is somewhere in the middle, but which would it be closer to?

"There'll be Champion Bay -- that's the athletic tournament district for regional tournaments." What exactly does this mean? Will there be a baseball stadium? Football stadium? Basketball arena?

I think it looks like a big money maker if it is all carried out correctly, but they all look that way until they run out of money during construction. . .
