I wasn't exactly sure where to put this, and I couldn't find a topic for the specific building, but while down checking out the progress of Highline 2.0, I noticed that the AT&T Building got a new logo on the previously brown, barren and windowless side. There is also scaffolding all the way around the building. I am hoping against hope they are taking off the brown cladding around the lower portions of the building, but that is probably wishful thinking. Admins: please move this to the correct topic if we have one.

I have a friend that works there, we were talking about this yesterday.

They are putting up the CenturyLink sign they took off the World Herald Building. The building is suppose to be getting all new windows over the next couple years and I think the scaffolding is safety measure because they are going to be repairing some of the façade on the building that is having issues.

Glad to know it's working out. Provide some updates on construction with pictures, if possible.

With the pace NuStyle has been on these last few years I wouldn't be shocked to see a new proposal later this year.

This logo somehow looks oddly out of place in terms of scale. Is this the finished look?

I noticed at the end of KETV's news tonight they showed the building and the sign is lit up.

They just need to redo that whole side.

Little off topic, but how long has that Century Link sign been there?

A day. That was the point of my picture, I should have provided some context.

Ok, thanks. I know that I am usually looking over at the highline when I drive by, but that sign is so huge I thought there was no was I had been missing that...

33 Thomas Street is a 550' Brutalist styled bigger brother to this in Manhattan. So do most cities have versions of these facilities?

If you go by the building you can see that about half way up instead of windows there are vents. I am sure this is a major hub for Omaha.

I noticed that when I was walking downtown last weekend. Also there are security cameras all along the sidewalk. Definitely seems like it.

Did they move this sign from the Omaha world Herald building? The reason I ask is that site on the east side the building is now gone…

I posted about this building awhile back on the Forgotten Omaha Facebook group, asking why the ornate façade was removed. Someone replied that a city ordinance was passed that somehow restricted/taxed building overhangs, and that was the reason the façade was later removed. Could this be the same ordinance that resulted in the Juliette balconies in Highline 2.0?

Looks great. Maybe they can build another one in the parking lot just to the east.

It feels like every other day I see someone else moving in here. Looks to be doing well from the outside.

The Highline 2.0 opened at the beginning of July. Rents for a one bedroom are advertised at $845 to $990. Two bed run $1440 to $1275.
Another project to move to the done list.
