For Omaha no but those are about the height of Lincoln's future high rise.

That is a goofy looking building.

I think they look awesome! The architecture isn't totally cutting edge, but its modern enough to fit into Omaha's skyline.

The Kiewit building looks pretty much done. Barriers down, sidewalks open and lights on inside.

It appears on the webcam that the hotel portion has started site work. Permits say an 84,607 SF building.

Do we know the identity of the hotel, or the room count?

It will be a Cambria Suites, similar to this one but one floor taller.

For some unfortunate reason, that Cambria reminds me of the Dino's Storage rendering. Maybe it is just the color...

Not quite as bad as Dino, but it has that cliche' inverted L frame on the facade over the corner that you see on almost every design now. Dino is just down-right hideous.

Still no details of what the Cambria is going to look like?

Do we even know the number of rooms or number of floors?

Looks a bit better than the photo posted earlier in the thread of a Cambria.

You're being kind. This thing has all the imagination of a penitentiary. Compared with the initial renderings proposed for the Cuming Street area west of the CLink the end result makes Omaha appear boring, sleepy and unimaginative. What you now have on Cuming is ZERO sense of community and ZERO cohesive planning.

Here is the rendering: (I agree, this is pretty bland looking, but I do think it will blend in well with the Yard apts and the Kiewit training center)

Est completion: mid-2018.

Design aside, I think it will do a nice job of filling up the area. I think once this gets completed and both buildings are side by side it will look great over there.

It's at least not suburban design like some of the hotels by it.

It is not the greatest design but filling up "The Yard" with another 5 story building is a good step forward.

This is much better than a 2 block surface parking lot.

The apartments look pretty much done from the outside. Barriers down, sidewalks done with landscaping in.

Drove by earlier this week. Looks like the elevator shaft is about two floors high so far on the hotel.

Elevator shafts topped out it appears. Should be the tallest building on the block and when they start with the wood construction it will go quick.

I think were going to look back in a year or two are really wish we would of had more retail along 14th. Missed our opportunity to create a focal street for the neighborhood.

Ease is key at these 'connected' apartments, touted as the first of their kind in Omaha

They say the complex is the metro area’s first apartment project to have a “fully integrated” smart home technology system wired during construction and operational in all 101 units.

“This comes with smart lights, outlets, thermostat, sensors, locks, dimmers, voice control and more.”
