I saw the sign while driving down 13th St last week.

Great photos and the project looks amazing.

I had the opportunity to attend an opening party here last week and I was not disappointed. Omaha is lucky to have NuStyle!

Sorry, I don't check in like I used to...

It was typical NuStyle effort. Maintaining interesting aspects of the building and incorporating them into common areas and even fitting units in among things you wouldn't think you could. The courtyard area was particularly interesting, and the views were great!

You know they did a good job on the conversion when a founder of Alley Poyner Macchietto moves in. This is such a cool building with great history. Big win for the riverfront imo.

Of all of the redevelopment projects completed in Omaha this century, this is the most impressive. I've been down to the project twice and each time came away wowed. It took a lot of imagination to envision this old building evolving into such stylish housing. Kudos to everyone involved, and to the tenants.

Wow, they left the overhead crane in there! That's really cool.
