Mall of the Bluffs set up for redevelopment around temporary middle school

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – The Council Bluffs Community School District now has one of its schools right next to a remodeling area, and it was a renovation in the district that brought the school to that area.

The Mall of The Bluffs is coming down. The mall was close to a ghost town in its later years, but not all sections of the old mall will be demolished.

Council Bluffs Public Schools owns the old Target Building. School officials bought the space for use while renovating two of the district’s high schools.

We haven’t made any decisions yet about what to do with the building once the renovation of Wilson Middle School and our students is complete. they’re coming back to this beautiful new renovated high school, so at the moment we don’t have a definite plan for that, “Murillo said.
